Entering the 2018 – ’19 season rated among the top incoming freshman in the state and country, Joseph Martin of Buchanan has proven on several occasions that he is a contender to step on the medal stand at the Rabobank in Bakersfield. To date, Martin has earned an individual title from the Zinkin Classic, placed at the prestigious Clovis Doc Buchanan Invitational, and this past weekend avenged a previous loss to the state’s No. 6 ranked, Paul Fox of Gilroy, to win the 145-pound final at the Mid-Cal Classic. Spending a great deal of his off-season competing on the folkstyle circuit, Martin is a two-time Cadet Folkstyle All-American, placing 4th and 3rd respectively.
As a result of his accomplishments this season and more recently winning the Mid-Cal Classic, the TCW has chosen Joseph Martin this week’s Wrestler of the Week. Congratulations, a job well done!
