Seth Schroeck Leading a Youth Movement for Capital Wrestling

Posted: Updated:

"Sensitive. He's just a nice kid."

Sensitive isn't the word you usually associate with wrestlers. But Seth Schroeck isn't your usual wrestler. Schroeck is a freshman at Capital High School. And while most freshman are most worried about fitting in, Schroeck is just looking to stand out.

"It makes me feel pretty good. But I don't like to get cocky and be more ahead of other people" Says Seth.

At 113 pounds Shroeck is ranked as the number one wrestler in the state for his weight class.

"At such a young level I haven't seen too many kids come in with the repertoire that they have in their arsenal" says head coach Deac Hall.

Seth's main role model is his older brother Gabe Schroeck, who was a wrestler at Helena High School from 2010 to 2012. He also represented team USA in the Fila Cadet World Wrestling Championships in Hungary in 2011.

"I always looked up to him because he had, he was the one always doing better. So I was always trying to catch up  to him and be as good as him" says Seth.

"Seth learned from Gabe technically, learned from his mistakes" says his father and assistant coach John Schroeck.

And even with such a superstar brother to look up to, Seth is only a mere piece in the youth movement going on here at Capital High School.

"Half our team are freshman and sophomores. More than Half" John Schroeck remarks.

"We've been able to throw them into the fire and they've been able to handle it. So it's a good young base to really build this program around" head coach Deac Hall says.

And with a young star like Seth leading the way, the future for the Bruins is looking brighter than ever. In Helena, Jake Jones ABC/Fox Montana sports.
