Joshua Helm, son of Lindsay and Dan Helm, is this week’s Athlete of the Week.
He is a freshman at Fairview High School and a member of the Wrestling Team. He competes in the 106 weight class. This season, he said beating the 5th team in the state in overtime was his biggest highlight.
He started wrestling when he was in the 6th grade. When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “To do it for my wrestling partner, Jeffery, who’s hurt.”
One of his top role models is his father, who also wrestled. “He won nationals and I want to be as good as him,” he said.
After graduating from FVHS, Helm said he would like to continue his wrestling career at Middle Tennessee State University.
