WINDSOR, Colorado — Dominick Serrano is looking to enter uncharted territory.
“I want to make history in my own way. No one should be able to stop me, except myself," Serrano said.
No one has been able to stop him. The Windsor Senior has a chance to close out his Colorado high school wrestling career unbeaten.
""This is my moment, my opportunity. You know this is what I’ve dreamed for my whole life and now that its here. It’s definitely something that I want to take advantage of," Serrano said.
Head coach Monte Trusty has watched every match, and every victory. He calls Serrano a generational wrestler.
“You don’t really get into wrestling thinking about having a 4-timer. It's definitely special and I’m just blessed that our paths crossed," Trusty said.
Serrano's motivation to stay perfect was actually a big loss. One of his close friends passed away last year.
“I told myself, I told his mom, 'This season is for him.' So, I definitely feel like I have a different purpose. Losing my friend has given me this drive to continue forward. To keep going no matter what," Serrano said.
The Windsor senior has kept going, honoring the memory of Manny Gonzalez. But he knows wrestling at Pepsi Center won’t be easy
“He never missed a State Tournament in the last three years. So, it’s definitely going to be harder without him in in this fourth one," Serrano said.
It promises to be an emotional weekend.
“You know I’m just ready to lay it all on the line and just embrace this moment one last time. I want to do this, this is definitely for him. This is going to be a memorable season," Serrano said.
