285 lbs.

The big boys wrestle a little different from the other weight classes with a lot of pushing and pulling as opposed to more strength and quickness. This is clearly shown by Erick Kirkland of Mt Zion (Carroll) makes quick work of Tyler Pitt of Telfair and wins in the first period to take 1A. The 5A matchup was no contest for Hunter Chumley of Cherokee. Jacob McConathy Murray County pins Logan Wrinkles of Upson-Lee, very late in the match to take the 4A title. The 3A matchup ended with both wrestlers crashing to the ground but Chase Duke of Heritage was on top and he took the victory over Dane Magnussen of West Forsyth. The 2A match went to overtime and LB Joel of Westminster came out victorious.
