Carson City-Crystal's wrestling coach Kacy Datema’s most precious moments were during the season, watching a wrestler blossom into what he calls a hero. "“It happens to every kid every season. They become heroes,” he said. “They win a dual or help take us to another level. It’s the small victories where you see them improve or step up their games.” (Daily News | Ryan Schlehuber)
