Noah Kang, son of Byung and Micki Kang, is this week’s Athlete of the Week.
He is a sophomore at Ravenwood High School and a member of the Boys Wrestling Team. This season at the Father Ryan Tournament, Kang went 3-2 against some of the best wrestlers in the state.
Kang said his father is one of the main reasons he started wrestling. His father wrestled in high school, so he said he thought it would be cool to follow in his footsteps.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “Knowing that there is always someone out there training and getting better, and that there is always someone who is better than me.”
His father is also his top role model in life. “He always works hard and he has earned everything he’s gotten,” Kang said.
He describes himself as hardworking and trustworthy. When he’s not on the mat, he enjoys spending time with friends and watching television.
After graduating, he hopes to go to Vanderbilt University where he would like to major in computer science.
