ELYRIA — Avon’s Jack Roesch wasn’t part of one of the best on-mat lineups in years at Thursday night’s Lorain County All-Star wrestling meet, but he was still the star of the show.

He was named the Division I Wrestler of the Year and then presented with the Paul Reynolds Trophy as Lorain County’s top overall senior wrestler.

“I’m just really grateful that I got the support I did throughout the year,” Roesch said. “I can’t thank my coaches and teammates enough. I’m really appreciative and thankful for all that. It’s just a great way to finish out the year. I’m happy I came out on a good note.”

Roesch placed third at the tough Brecksville Holiday Tournament before finishing as a finalist at the Bill Dies Memorial at Akron Firestone. He followed his regular-season success with a Division I sectional championship and earned his second trip to the state tournament — winning three straight matches to finish as the 285-pound state runner-up.

“It’s been a fun (season), a memorable one, and I think I’ll always look back on it and probably smile at all the memories and the bonds I made with my coaches, teammates and just everybody,” Roesch said. “I’m just grateful I got to experience it with the people that I did.”
