  1. Donnie Hidden

    Washington High School

    Freshman

    Regional Champ

    Not sure how many kids go into regionals with a losing record and come out of regionals like this!

    From Peoria Journal Star:

    "Panther freshman Donnie Hidden was a prime example Saturday. He came in as the No. 2 seed at 145 pounds with a 19-24 record. He left with the regional title after an 11-3 major decision against Peoria Highs Maldonaldo Guyton. The Peoria High junior upset top-seeded Drew Greenwood of Morton in the semifinals with a pin in sudden-victory."
