Hudson Patch Whiz Kid: Isac Schindler, 12
Accomplishment: Hudson sixth-grader Isac wrestled his way to second place for boys born 1998-99 (185 lbs.) at the 2011 WWF Kids Folkstyle State Tournament in Madison on March 26. Isac is coached by Art Tobin and older brother Derek Schindler, and won sixth place at the same tournament last year.
Key to Awesomeness: Isac isn't one for resting on his laurels. In the off season, he makes it a priority to work out at the every day and also builds extra muscle working on the family farm. Isac's nominator noted that he is known as a hard worker and always fully applies himself to the task at hand, be it pinning his opponent to the mat or lending a hand with chores.
