Nathan Royer is December’s Wrestler of the Month. Royer is the son of Anthony and Lynn Royer. He is a senior this year and he has been wrestling since he was a freshman.

When asked what he loves about this sport he said, “I love how much you can push yourself and push those around you,” He adds, “you might think that it is an individual sport and it very much is, but the influence the team has on you and with how physical and harsh the season is you find new ways to reach that next level of competition and those are found by looking around you at your teammates and listening to the encouragement that you get from them.”

Royer is honored to be a student of the month for wrestling because it shows that he stands out as a valuable member of the team and means that he is doing something right when it comes to encouraging and helping his teammates.

“I believe that I was nominated for athlete of the month because of the dedication to the team and trying to pull the new wrestlers along” Royer adds that it is a young team with lots of new talent and he does his best to encourage everyone on the team to be their best, as well as bring the younger members to “a level of competition and level of comradery as the older teammates.”

In honor of his achievements, the Adel Health Mart has donated $100 to the ADM Scholarship Foundation.
