Brandon Jeske (No. 4 @ 130) Wrestling to Win

To turn Brandon Jeske (No. 4 @ 130) into one of the country’s top wrestlers, his family ran its car into the ground.

The 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan sits in front of Tanya Birchett’s house, no longer able to handle long trips. It finally conked out last summer, just a few miles short of its destination, though the family forgets that final location.

Brandon believes it was Fargo, N.D. Tanya, his mother, thinks it was Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where the Walsh Ironman takes place.

“We actually had to get a new car,” Jeske said. “It would stop in the middle of anywhere. We would take a couple of kids around the country, take the back seats out and make it like a little bed area. It was like a little mobile home.”

This weekend, Jeske’s travel will be much more reasonable. He leads the Cox High School wrestling team to Fairfax for the Group AAA state tournament, a two-day event that begins today at Robinson Secondary School.
