POQUOSON, Va. — It's fair to say sports help bond the Poquoson community together. It's especially true for wrestling which is like a super glue in that bond.
Our Athlete of the Week, Brett Poultney is a perfect example of that wrestling tradition. He started wrestling at age 5. Last year he won a state championship in the 113 pound weight class.
He's back for more in this, his senior season. He's getting a lot of help from his Dad, Chad Poultney who joined the Bull Islanders coaching staff as an assistant two years ago. He sounds like a proud papa, "To see him mature and develop into a state champion was an awesome dream.You see the pictures on the wall. That's what they shoot for, to be a state champion on that wall."
