CCCHS Valedictorian Rhett Koppes said the Class of 2020 has created many great memories together. For him, that includes the sport of wrestling, which has not only given him great memories, but also “a crooked nose, several black eyes and some wicked cauliflower ear” as well as “many valuable life lessons.”
“In a lot of ways, life is like a wrestling match,” Koppes said. “Just like in wrestling, life too presents you with an opponent. These opponents are different problems, obstacles and challenges, and you may even run into the same opponent many times. Whoever your opponent is, they’re going to try to take you down.
