Kobi Gomez – Altus

Kobi Gomez, a senior at Altus High School, has been wrestling since the young age of four. His father was also a wrestler in high school, which is what first got him interested in the sport.

Gomez says that the bar is set high for the Bulldog wrestlers and he wouldn’t have it any other way. It is something that has made him proud to represent his high school in competition over the years.

“I enjoy wrestling for Altus because the standard you have as a Bulldog is high and you can’t settle for less,” he said.

Gomez is a wrestler whose style includes pushing the pace and getting the pin early. He says that while this season had its ups and downs, it has been his favorite one so far. A big moment for him was when he was able to add on to his accomplishments in previous years.

“A standout moment would be winning regionals for the third time,” he said.

Gomez is an athlete who not only strives to be the best he can be, but to help others reach that same goal as well. He enjoys helping those around him succeed, especially his fellow teammates.

“I like to help and push others to achieve their goals and I think that helps me become a better leader, student, and athlete,” he said. “Seeing others succeed makes me know that I could do the same if I work hard in life.”

Gomez has also played football for the Bulldogs and is involved in Link Crew, Student Council, and AHS Ambassadors. After his time at Altus High is finished, he plans to continue his wrestling career on the collegiate level and pursue a degree in education, with hopes of someday becoming a wrestling and football coach.
