Secaucus High School senior Bobby Roesing is having a dream season that culminates in the state championships this weekend in Atlantic City.
Roesing has been a force this year for the Patriots’ wrestling team in the 160-pound class, posting an untarnished 33-0 record.
Of late, he’s on a particular roll. After winning first place in District 16 in Feburary (his third district championship) and picking up the Most Valuable Wrestler Award for his three pins. He also won the Region 4 title last weekend and collected more hardware with the Most Outstanding Wrestler Award for the entire region.
If that’s not enough, he heads down to south Jersey this weekend to test his skills against the best wrestlers in the state.
If his name sounds familiar, it’s because his older brother, Eddie, and sister, Cory, also starred in multiple sports for the Patriots. His dad, Eddie, also runs the Secaucus recreation program and was no slouch on the wrestling mats either.
Roesing, who is now among the top five wrestlers in wins in Hudson County history, takes a No. 3 ranking in his class into the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association tourney at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City starting Friday. He’ll face Tyler Adams of Piscataway in the first round.
Good luck, Bobby. We’re rooting for ya.
