However these next couple weeks go, they’ll likely be Remedi’s last as a competitive wrestler. He said he wants to go to college next year, but he doesn’t expect to continue wrestling.
The University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, Remedi said, is his top choice for colleges because of its Forensic Science Institute. Remedi said he’d like to someday work in a police forensics lab.
“Being able to look at people’s bones and say they were healthy, they were fit, they weren’t fat, what sex they were, how tall they were, how much they weighed, just by looking at the bones — I think that’s awesome,” Remedi said.
Remedi also ran cross country at Puterbaugh, he said, but in high school it’s wrestling year-round. In past offseasons he’s gone to organized freestyle wrestling practices, but he’s also done a lot of training on his own.
When he has free time, Remedi said he’ll typically spend time with friends and family, study or catch up on his sleep.
Considering speed is Remedi’s best weapon against his physically larger opponents, getting enough rest remains an essential part of his game.
