Eastview wrestler grabs the edge when frustration starts
- February 12, 2013 - 4:37 PM
Senior Anthony Munos is one of Eastview's winningest wrestlers on this year's squad. Munos accumulated an overall record of 29-7 at 152 pounds during the regular season.
In the fall he played cornerback on the Lightning football team that reached the quarterfinals of the Class 6A state tournament. He also will play on the ultimate Frisbee team in the spring.
Here is a closer look at Munos in advance of this weekend's sectional tournament:
The best movie I've seen in the last year? "The Dark Knight Rises."
Three songs I never skip on my iPod are ... "Money Trees" by Kendrick Lamar; "Gold on the Ceiling" by The Black Keys; "Ambition" by Wale.
What are your three favorite apps? Pandora, Twitter and YouTube.
Who do you like to follow the most on Twitter, and why? It has to be @SportsCenter because they give me all the updates that are going on in the world of sports.
Three words or phrases my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Clever; humorous; brave.
At my first varsity practice, I felt ... very overwhelmed, but up for the challenge. I was 13 and felt a lot smaller than everyone else, but by the end of the practice I felt like I was a part of a second family.
To get focused for a match, I ... normally just put my headphones on and listen to music.
I know I have an edge on an opponent when ... they start getting frustrated and start to lose their head. When this happens my opponents normally start to make mistakes, which I try to capitalize on. This usually will cause them to get more frustrated and make more mistakes.
What did you work on most in the offseason? I went to wrestling camps over the summer to help with the upcoming season, and lifted weights.
What were your goals for 2012-13? To go to state with every team I am apart of and also to be successful in the tournament.
What is your most memorable moment as a high school athlete? Playing in the state high school football tournament in 2012 at the Metrodome.
If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be? Instead of having so many different classes, [reduce it to] only a few, which will make the road to a state champion even harder but more prestigious.
How do you balance school and sports during the year? When I am in season, my first priority is school. So when I get home from practice, I sit down and get my homework done. Then I am free to do whatever I want.
Who is your favorite college or pro sports team and why? I would say the Vikings because they are Minnesota's professional football team.
In 10 years, I hope I'm ... out of college with a family and a great job.
What is the best sports advice you ever received? "If nothing changes, nothing changes."
