Braden Swanson


“I can always talk to people,” sophomore Braden Swanson said. “I make friends with everybody. I’ve learned that the people you are friends with is super important with how your life goes, especially when moving to a new place so far away. We [my family]  moved here, to this specific part [of Texas], because of the wrestling program. Last year I was the only person in my weight class so I didn’t have to compete for the varsity spot. I didn’t feel like I deserved it, but I went with a winning record of 24 [to] 16 against seniors and juniors. I felt pretty good about myself.”
