My nephew won state championship!

I just have to share the great news our family is so proud of! My nephew, Danny Bell from GA, just won the state championship in wrestling! The best in the whole state of Georgia is something to be proud of!
Here's part of the newspaper article: "DULUTH — Flowery Branch's Danny Bell wins state wrestling title.
When the wrestling season started, Flowery Branch junior Danny Bell never envisioned it ending like this. Maybe that’s a good thing.
The Falcons’ 119-pounder defeated Eastside’s Danny Gatt, 6-1, earning the Class AAA traditional state title Saturday at the Arena at Gwinnett Center. Bell joins B.J. Johnson (2004) as the only state wrestling champions in Flowery Branch history.
Bell finished the season with a 61-2 record, an Area 7-AAA title and Hall County championship under his belt."

Danny is the one in the black. Way to go Danny!!!
