Bill Iezzi: Eastern's Star Wrestler

Rob Deutsch, who won a state title at 119 pounds two years ago as a sophomore, is on a tear to do it again this year at the same weight.

After Deutsch defeated Haddonfield's Kevin Gregorio, 17-7, at 125 on Dec. 28, he said he'll continue wrestling at that weight until the Virginia Duals on Jan. 7-8-9, when he'll return to 119.

Deutsch wants to build up his strength at the higher weight early in the season before dropping down to 119.

His record was 10-0 after Haddonfield beat Eastern, 41-25.
