The Jesse Fulk file
Weight class: 182
To his credit: Herald All-Area Wrestler of the Year for the third straight time, Fulk broke his single-season school record for wins on the way to his first Class 3A state championship. After winning a school record 59 matches during the 2013-14 season, Fulk followed it up with a 70-3 record as a senior. Fulk, who also won county, district and region championships, is the first wrestler in Manatee history to crack 200 wins and his 230 victories give him the most ever in Sarasota and Manatee counties.
Fast fact: Fulk is the Hurricanes' first state champion since Jacob Gregory in 2009. Fulk's brother, Andrew, also won a state title in 2008.
Up next: Fulk is off to George Mason, where he will wrestle for the Patriots and study engineering.
