BTSPhilly   |   Jul 9, 2014

Name: Ahmad Ibrahim School: Northeast High Coach: Mike Siravo & Kraig Feldman Age/Grade: 18 years old/12th Grade Number of Years Wrestling: 3 years Why did you start wrestling? I wanted to get to know more people, and my Muay Thai coach who had wrestled at Northeast made me do it to help my fighting. Why do you enjoy wrestling? I quit every other sport I had tried before, but I really clicked with wrestling. What impact has wrestling had on your life and academics? It taught me that you can’t be a basic person if you want to be successful - you have to make sacrifices. Both in the classroom and on the mats, you have to lead by example - you can’t tell people to work hard if you’re not working hard yourself. What do you want to be when you get older? A professional Muay Thai fighter and business owner. What is your favorite college/university? The Pennsylvania State University - Abington Campus Who is your favorite athlete? Giorgio Petrosyan, Professional Kickboxer
