Metro Wrestler of the Year
Josh Epperson ended his junior wrestling season with an unprecedented accomplishment. He was the first Tallassee wrestler to complete a season undefeated. The 126-pound junior was 49-0 in winning his second championship and will get an opportunity for more uncharted waters with a three-peat possibility next year. Epperson can now add "Wrester of the Year" to his resume. He is the recipient of the All-Metro honor given by the Montgomery Advertiser.
Three of Epperson's Tallassee teammates were also selected to the team; Kennon Reese (120, 46-6), Drew Baker (182, 45-6) and Jesse Rowlen (285, 42-1). Rowlen was also a state champion. B.J. Thomas (152, 43-10) was an honorable mention selection.
