DENVER — Take a bow Jesse, you earned it.
Jesse Reed jumped to his feet Saturday night, gave the crowd a four-finger salute with both hands, then bowed toward the Paonia High School fans after his victory in the Class 2A 126-pound match.
Reed got it done. With his 4-1 victory over Rocky Ford’s Jeremy Fraser at the Colorado state wrestling championships, the Paonia senior became only the 18th four-time state champion in Colorado history.
“I’m living a dream,” the soft-spoken, humble, but supremely confident Reed said, surrounded by TV cameras and reporters. “You know, I knew it was my last high school wrestling match, so I was nervous. There were a little more nerves than any match this season.”
When he took his spot at the top of the podium to accept his gold medal, the near-capacity crowd gave him a standing ovation.
He earned it.
