Casey McWhirter East Peoria Wrestling Champion started when he was 7, and was always one of the best of the best, as early as Junior High he was placing 1st and 2nd in many large events and even going to State. He has been a proud member of the East Peoria Raiders Varsity Wrestling Squad for four years, competing in the 132 lb class and has been captain for the last two years and a state qualifier many times.
This polite good looking young man, has wrestled in well over 500 matches in his life (including many BJJ matches over the years) , in this his senior year is 37-2, and has competed in huge events like Disney Championship (taking 9th place out of 120 wrestlers). He has had a great pre-season and this season is on track for State. College offers are already coming in, with Casey leaning towards North Central or Southern.
Casey has a family that supports him greatly and has had great training from TJ Wrestling School in Morton to make him the winner he is.
