Five brothers build a family wrestling tradition
March 03, 2019


The five wrestling Ross brothers have tried other sports, but nothing else has satisfied or bonded them as wrestling has. Competing for Onteora High School at the February 23-24 New York State Wrestling Championships in Albany, Nathan, a junior, took sixth place in his weight class of 152 pounds, and Nicholas, a sophomore, placed third in the 138-pound weight class.

Patrick, Nicholas’ twin, has made it to the state competition before, although this year he didn’t qualify. Dylan, 18, is now wrestling for the University of Buffalo, and Austin, 24, who started it all, was captain of the team at the same college.
