Whenever Ethan O'Connell steps on the mat for Madison County High School wrestling, he intends to win. The senior has spent five seasons aboard the school's varsity wrestling team and each year of high school, Ethan has placed in the state tournament. That feat has never been accomplished by another Mountaineer wrestler.

Ethan holds his own in the classroom also. He's ranked in the top 25% of his senior class and maintains a 3.3 GPA.
