WTV's Ryan Shapiro, Karina Grokhovskaya, and Sadie Johnson bring you a few last words

Trojan Classic is Redhawk wrestling’s “license to thrill”

“Bond. James Bond”.

Three words that serve to introduce the title character of Ian Fleming’s 14 original novels and the long-running film series inspired by them.

Redhawks Wrestling hopes to deliver the same gripping action and captivating performances that have made 007 a staple for decades as they head to Euless Trinity Friday and Saturday to compete in the Trojan Classic. But as in any James Bond novel or film, it won’t be easy, as the Redhawks are taking on nearly 75 other teams from around the country.

“It’s a tough one, but it’s good for us,” head coach Justin Koons said. “We’re going to go in there and compete, but I don’t think we’re going to compete in the championship or place [overall] because there’s some tough competition. We’re hoping to place some kids individually, but some of our best kids that were state qualifiers last year didn’t place at this tournament.”

Despite having more competition than during the rest of the season, junior Julio Velo is cautiously optimistic.

“I don’t like to predict anything,” Velo said. “But I’m feeling pretty good.”
