This week, the South Tama County Middle School Student-Athlete Spotlight is on Daniel Ochoa. Daniel is an 8th grader at STC. He is a grappler for the Trojan wrestling team.
Daniel is out for wrestling for the first time and he is making a positive impact very quickly. He made a strong debut in the first Jr. High Meet of the season.
"He has dedicated himself to the sport which has allowed him to quickly learn.", Coach Chyma says. "Wrestling is a tough sport and Daniel is showing us all his resilience. I am very pleased with his progress and if Daniel attacks life like he has this new challenge, he will be a very successful man."
Daniel enjoys spending time with friends and family especially spending time with his younger brother. Daniel takes pride in being a role model for his little brother and teaching him the game of soccer.
Daniel is the son of Manual Ochoa Sr. and Emily Nunez of Tama.
