Joey Blumer (Kiski Area)


This season, we honor one of our longtime Mat Factory Club Members, wily Joey Blumer of Kiski Area, as our Wrestler of the Year. A returning AAA PIAA State Placewinner, Joey made his mark early in the 2016-17 campaign by placing at the prestigious national level tournament, the Super 32 tournament in Greensboro, NC and didn't let up from the early start to the season. His placement at the Super 32 earned him a top 20 ranking in the Country and shortly thereafter committed to NCAA Champion Penn State. As a leader of the perennial AAA powerhouse, Kiski Area, he helped lead the Cavaliers to a 3rd Place finish at the PIAA AAA State Team Championships. In the post-season, Joey finished as Section & WPIAL AAA runner-up to former World Champion Jarod Verklereen. He finished his Senior campaign placing at the State tournament a second time, won in the prestigious Pittsburgh Classic and finished 5th at FloNationals, twice defeating PIAA AA State Champion Cole Matthews of Reynolds. Joey's work ethic, academic prowess and constant desire to improve will lend itself to great things for Joey under the tutelage of the legendary Cael Sanderson.
