Liberty season preview 20-21

.
November 6, 2020

By Chris Geinosky

LIBERTY – Four years of hard work by the Liberty High School wrestling program paid off in the biggest of ways last season.

A memorable journey that began with the hiring of head coach Dustin Brewer in the spring of 2016, culminated in not only the program’s first-ever state team title, but in one of the greatest showings ever in the 90-year history of the Missouri State Wrestling Championships. But after ascending to the top of the mountain and now holding the title as reigning Class 4 State Champions, the Blue Jays want to believe this is only the beginning of what they will accomplish, not the end.

“I hope this is the start of an era,” Brewer said. “Our seniors last year really set the tone for our team. They made the sacrifices and worked their butts off and showed the younger guys what we want this program to be all about. Hopefully this is the year where we can follow up on that. They saw what those guys did last year, and now they know what it takes. It’s just a matter of them putting it into action.”

The Quarantine Interviews: Sam Frankowsi

.
June 25, 2020

3x state champ -> Navy -> Mizzou. After a stint at NAPS (Naval Academy Preparatory School), Frankowski has committed to the Mizzou Tigers, boosting an already impressive 4th-rated recruiting class. The projected 157/165 wrestler sits down with Derryan Derrough after a year out of high school.

The Quarantine Interviews (Because I Can’t Be Bothered to be More Creative)
By Derryan Derrough

You’ll have to excuse me if I’m biased.

Watching Sam Frankowski grow from finishing 1-2 at the state tournament his freshman year to finishing 12-0 the next three years, forces you to grow, as well. His senior year (2019), Rockwood Summit finished 5th in Class 3, the highest – by far – in school history, eight points out of a state trophy. The crazy thing about pushing to achieve something you’ve never done is an exercise in managing the unknown.

In that unknown, however, is hope. Sam Frankowski and that senior class represented hope, day in, and day out.
