Three-year varsity starter Jordan Reyes ended 2021-2022 competition with a season record of 26-7 and a career record of 72-31.

Concord High wrestler Jordan Reyes works out some more after a long practice session three days before Division I States, which took place on Saturday, Feb. 19. Reyes, who wrestled in the 145 pound weight class, did what he could throughout school to stay in shape, make weight, and remain healthy. Reyes wrestled for six years, starting in seventh grade at Rundlett Middle School. One of his signature moves was the headlock takedown, which helped him win this year’s season opener in 19 seconds. “This season was definitely something different. It was the first real season since my sophomore year and although it didn’t end the way I wanted it to, I’m happy I got to share the mat with the team for the last time,” Reyes said. Reyes tore cartilage in his ribs at Division I states; that injury impacted his performance at Meet of Champions Feb. 26. Coach Ham Munnell had words of praise for this outgoing senior: “Jordan is a great young man and is a tremendous wrestler for the Crimson Tide. His leadership and, competitive spirit has been a huge factor in the success of the team.” Reyes leaves CHS with a career record of 72 wins, 31 losses.
