Athlete of the Week

KCChronicle.com/preps Athlete of the Week: Marmion senior wrestler George Fisher

Why he was selected: Fisher capped a 4-0 run through the IHSA Class 3A state wrestling tournament with a state championship at 132 pounds.

Marmion senior wrestler George Fisher scored the only fall of Saturday's Class 3A state wrestling finals, winning the 132-pound title by pinning Oak Park-River Forest's Larry Early III in 1:45. The St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, Fisher captured his second state championship in three seasons. Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley caught up with Fisher (47-4), a Michigan recruit from St. Charles. The following is an edited transcript:

You were a state champ as a sophomore and a runner-up last season. How is to be back on top of the podium?
It shows how far I've improved and everything compared to last year. After that loss, that's all I thought about the whole entire year. And it wasn't that motivation of losing, it was more of that feeling after I lost that, 'Well, I could have given a lot more out there but I didn't.' Now this time, that's all I was thinking of. Because you know, win or lose, I'm going to go out there and I'm going to give it my all. And if I win, then I win. But if I lose, then at least I know that I gave it my all. And I mean, that was a huge improvement for me.

How do you celebrate this since the dual team tournament is still ahead?
It's nice to have right now. I'm on cloud nine, especially with Johnny [Jimenez, the 3A champ at 120 and a fellow St. Charles resident]. But, I mean, now it's a team goal. Now it's to get us down to team state and to win a team state championship.
