Aaron recently won the State Wrestling Title at the 182 pound weight class. He finished his junior season with an impressive 35-7 record.
"It was my first title of the year, it felt real good" Adkins said.
Adkins had taken three second place finishes this year in major wrestling tournaments in Alliance, Mansfield, and Brecksville.
"I really feel my experiences in winning a football state title helped me down the stretch in getting the wrestling championship" said Adkins.

"After I won the wrestling title my brother said he will come out and wrestle for our senior year" Adkins said.
