ARIZONA HIGH SCHOOL AND NATIONAL WRESTLING STANDOUT ANTHONY ROBLES TO KICK-OFF LA SUB X
High school national champion wrestler Anthony Robles will be a featured guest at the LA Sub X Submission League debut on Friday, May 26 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, Calif. LA Sub X will bring together the top submission fighters in the world for this event.
Born with just one leg, 17 year-old Anthony Robles capped off an amazing career on March 26 by winning the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) national title at 112 lbs. with a 9-1 victory in the finals. The NHSCA invites only seniors in high school who won state titles to its national meet. Robles became the first disabled wrestler to win a title at the NHSCA national championships.
The win also finished off a perfect 53-0 senior season for him. For his four-year career, he posted a record of 131-15 and won two Arizona state titles. He was also undefeated as a junior. Amazingly, Anthony never wrestled until his family moved from just outside of Los Angeles to Mesa before his freshman year. He aspires to someday compete in mixed martial arts after he completes his collegiate wrestling career at Arizona State Univ.
