Watching Southern Garrett freshman Coy Ozias wrestle is like watching a storm roll through.  

The rumbles begin before the blow first whistle, Coy pacing the mat with his arms puffed out from his sides, drawing forth the winds and clouds as he races to the center of the mat.  But them comes the devastation.

With the sole purpose to destroy his opponent, Coy goes after his foes relentlessly, coming at them from every angle till the thunderous slap of the mat brings upon the silence and tranquility of his hand being raised, before traveling on to his next victim.

Imagine that scene 43 times in the 2010-2011 season, the exact number of times it took Coy to claim titles at the Mount Mat Madness, counties, regions and the 2011 MPSSAA 1A/2A State Tournament, while maintaining his 43-0 perfect freshman season.

“I have been here for three years watching my brother every time, and this was my chance to go down there and win, and I did it,” Coy said, sharing each title of his with big brother, Lex.  “I knew my hardest matches were probably going to be at MMM, and as soon as I won all those there, I knew I could almost pin my way through states.  

And he almost did just that, recording two falls and a major decision to get to the state finals, where he again decked his opponent.

But pinning isn’t very rare to any of the Southern Garrett Rams, whose Coy, Lex and Bubba Scheffel recorded a combined eight falls in their 2011 title runs.

Prefect in his freshman year and capturing a state title, Coy has already laid the groundwork for an accomplishment another famous Ram has done; Brutus Scheffel’s four-time state championship career.

“I hope I can just keep working hard and keep doing my thing,” Coy said.  “I’d like to try and go undefeated my entire career.”

But there is a lot of work to be done between now and the end of what has begun as a promising career, and only time will tell what is in store for the most recent state championship addition to the Southern Garrett Rams.
