One to watch
Obinna Nwakeze is an All-American and a two-time prep school State wrestling champion. Nwakeze is a perfect 15-0 this year in the 285-pound weight class, and is set on completing the season undefeated with title grabs at both the Fairchester Athletic Association and State tournaments.
As impressive as his mat skills are, Nwakeze is arguably even better in the football trenches. He was an offensive and defensive lineman for the Wildcats, and was recently selected to the Westchester Chapter of the National Football Foundation’s Golden Dozen Scholar Athlete Team.
Obinna who plans on studying Biology at Yale also wants to pursue premedical studies and possibly become an orthopedic surgeon.
