There are a half-dozen seniors on the West Carroll wrestling team and they've all chosen a very similar path for after graduation. All of them are enlisting to serve the country.

The branches the boys joined include the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, and a set of triplets are all heading into the Navy. They're all proud to share their decision and excited for another challenge coming their way.

"We all want to do the same thing. We're all just into it. We found what we wanted to do," said Matthew Ross.

"There's one or two every now and again on a team and it's like, oh hey you're going in. They're going to be like who's all going in? Well, all of us," said Morgan Hartman.

The seniors say, in the final weeks of their high school wrestling careers they're getting both words of encouragement, and absolutely no slack from their coaches.
