Festus’ Shaver wrangles another wrestling Dream Team nod

In a hotbed for high school wrestling, you’ll find few athletes as consistent as Festus Tigers senior Luke Shaver.

Another statistic that makes that point clear is a second straight selection to the Regional Radio Dream Team.

Shaver finished third in the state in his weight class in back-to-back seasons.

He says it’s nice to see that coaches are taking notice.

Shaver was unbeaten all the way until the Class 3 state semifinals this season, marking his second straight district championship and third straight year with at least 40 victories.

But wrestling isn’t just about winning for Shaver-it’s a safe haven.

But Shaver believes his stellar career isn’t possible without great coaching.

Shaver will continue to wrestle in college at Drury University in Springfield.
