Gee Stanley, Shakur Cooper, and Anthony Vizcaino are athletes of the week for their dedication and hard work.

Congratulations to seniors Shakur Cooper and Gee Stanley. Both received first team All-Dade honors by the Miami Herald for football. To read up more on Cooper and Stanley, click here. Our other athlete of the week is senior wrestler Anthony Vizcaino. Vizcaino has pinned 17 consecutive opponents over his last 2 tournaments to earn athlete of the week.

“My goal for the season is to make it to states, and be a state placer or state champion,” Vizcaino said.

Vizcaino is a senior in the CAF&DM program, and he recently made a big impact on this year’s wrestling team. Vizcaino has been wrestling for eight years, and hopes to continue wrestling in college. When Vizcaino isn’t at wrestling practice, you might find him out on the soccer field. When preparing for a match, Vizcaino makes sure to do a lot of cardio and a lot of work in the weight room.

“In wrestling, you have to keep up the hard work. It is a fun sport with a lot of opportunities and you must never give up,” Vizcaino said.

Come out and support Vizcaino and the rest of the wrestling team at Districts on Thursday, Feb. 18 at Coral Park, and hopefully watch him pin down his competition.
