For three years Brawley Union High School wrestler David Villagran has been a standard-bearer when it comes to Imperial Valley wrestling.
On Saturday, the 17-year-old senior proved exactly why he is one of the best in his weight class in Southern California as he won the 112-pound division at the El Capitan Duels in Lakeside and took the meet's outstanding wrestler award.
While his 5-0 record in the tournament was impressive, it wasn't as impressive as how he did it. Villagran pinned each of his opponents in less than 50 seconds.
"I just went in there to get it over with. I was kind of mad and I wanted to take out my anger on them," said Villagran. "Usually when I wrestle, I take my time and play with the guys. But this time I didn't want to mess around. I didn't want to waste any time."
