I knew going into the match that I had to pin him. He was ranked 6th in the state, 3 spots under me, and knew he was a tough wrestler. I gave that match my everything, and ended up pinning him second period, therefor Slinger won the meet. That was my second time pinning through the Gunslinger tournament.
