Jordan Sepeda overcomes obstacles on his way to state
Jordan Sepeda has battled back from injuries on and off the wrestling mat. An ACL injury as a sophomore, and this past Fall the Natomas High School wrestler spent two days in ICU after being hit by an automobile while walking home from school. But nothing seems to slow down his desire to compete.
At 220-pounds and a low center of gravity, he has a menacing power. The current two-time Division III and Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Champion is eyeing his first California state title. The championships are Friday and Saturday March, 1-2 at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.
His varsity jacket is like a road map of his young life. Patches, medals and embroidered stitchings are surely chapters that Sepeda could talk about for hours.
Pre-match readiness and rituals.
There is a special closeness between Jordan and his father Joseph, who has also been the wrestler's coach his whole life.
Sepeda pins his opponent to win the 2013 220-pound Sac-Joaquin Section Division III crown.
