PHS coach Steve Amy says: Anytime you have Newman in your regional you know there are going to be some great wrestlers in the tournament. I believe we have quite a few guys with a great opportunity in front of them. As long as they believe in themselves and focus on the things that they can control and they will be successful. This time of year you have to stay focused on the task at hand and continue to work hard and they have done a great job of that this week.
