Brown is bringing in two wrestlers from Louisiana, one from Las Vegas, and one from El Paso to help fill the roster for the inaugural season of wrestling at JCU.
Charles Bouvay and Kameron Humphreys are coming to JCU from Plaquemine High School in Plaquemine, Louisiana. Bouvay made history at Plaquemine as the second state placer in school history. He finished in 4th place at 285 pounds at the 2022 Division II Louisiana High School Athletic Association State Championships. Humphreys also had a successful high school career as he qualified for the Division II LHSAA State Championships two different years.
“Bouvay is a solid heavyweight who we expect big things from over the next four years,” Brown said. “He will give many guys in his weight problems with his athletic abilities. Kameron Humphreys is a raw talent whose heart and never give up attitude will help him become the corner stone to building our program.”
Rodolfo Ocampo joins the Bulldogs from Silverado High School in Las Vegas. Ocampo finished in 4th place at 170 pounds in the 2022 4A Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association State Championships.
“Rodolfo Ocampo is a powerful and athletic 184-pounder that works hard on and off the mat, and leads by example,” Brown said.
Matthew Hernandez is making the move to JCU out of Chapin High School in El Paso. He was an alternate at 132 pounds in the 2022 5A Texas State Wrestling Tournament.
“Matthew Hernandez has the never slow down mentality and is always working to win every situation on the mat,” Brown said. “He is also an excellent student coming in with a 3.8 GPA.”
Wrestlers will be arriving on campus over the next few weeks as classes start and preparations are made for the Bulldogs to start competing this fall.
