Olympic Wrestling Gold Medalist
Bakersfield High School Driller ... for life.
Last night Bakersfield High Wrestling had a fund raiser ...
and of course ... who better promote BHS Wrestling .... than
Jake spoke to a packed gym of BHS supporters and ... honestly ... Jake Varner fans.
Not only did Jake make the trip to aid the
BHS Wrestling ... but to be a part of
Bakersfield High School
unveiling the new feature which will forevermore adorn
the wall of the BHS gymnasium.
This amazing banner will hang proudly alongside
100 years of Bakersfield High athletic achievements.
(And let me tell you...there have been many!)
There was plenty ... of GOLD in the house ...
and Jake took time to share the "gold fever."
Check this out ... my first gold medal ...
well okay ... my first "close encounter" with a gold metal.
... one of his biggest fans ... his Dad.
(Except for maybe his Mom ... you know how we moms are)
It was a great night.
Jake Varner has had an AMAZING CAREER!
Thanks for coming home and sharing the love....
"Once a Driller ... Always a Driller!"
