Robert Yanez has helped bring River Forest back from the brink

Recommended Posts

Robert Yanez remembers his freshman wrestling season at River Forest like a bad dream.


The program was nearly discontinued because of a lack of interest in the early 2000's and hadn't yet fully recovered. Coach Brian Wesley took over during Yanez's sophomore year and started recruiting athletes from other sports, even if they didn't have a wrestling background. Yanez recruited, too.


"I wasn't really planning on trying to make the program better. I was trying to get more guys," Yanez said. "Wrestling is definitely better now. (Wesley) puts a lot of effort into making the team better."
