(COLUMBUS) – Deandre Nassar completed what he set out to do. 

The Bluffton High School senior standout grappler capped his career with a state championship and did not lose a single match the entire season. 

Nassar closed the 2018-19 campaign with a 48-0 record and now has added his name to the long history of Pirate wrestlers who have also earned state championships in years past.


Deandre Nassar takes the mat tonight around 8:40 p.m.


Tweets from www.blufftonpirates.com - Good evening Pirate fans!! 152 class is currently wrestling. There will be 160 and 170 as well as an awards ceremony before Deandre takes the mat tonight. 8:40 would be a safe guess as a possible start time.
