Crossings Christian’s Max Egbert: Presented By Iron Nation Harley-Davidson

By Derrick Smith

Wrestling is a sport that is not for just anyone. It is a tough sport, one that requires extra work in the weight room and at practice. And, as Max Egbert says, it is about more than just being physically ready. “It is a very difficult sport that is just a tough mentally as it is physically,” Egbert said. “To be successful, you have to be dedicated and be willing to put in the hard work.”

Egbert, a senior at Crossings Christian School, wrestles at the 132 pound weight class. He began wrestling five years ago and says that the sport has played a large role in his life and shaped him into the person he is today.

His wrestling coaches have played a big part in Max’s life. “Coach Holder and Coach Brown have both pushed me to be the wrestler I am today,” Egbert says. “They have taught me a lot of things both on and off the mat.”

While he has enjoyed a lot of great moments on throughout his wrestling career, there is one moment that is his favorite. “This year, we went to a meet in Louisiana,” he said. “I was named Most Outstanding Wrestler and finished the weekend with seven pins and a first place medal.”

Egbert is also a member of the school tennis team.
