Athlete of the Week: Chris Favoroso

By Matt Lincoln/CBS12

JENSEN BEACH, Fla. - Chris Favoroso is a two-time wrestling champion, the first one in the history of one of the best high school programs in South Florida.  So he's a no-brainer choice for the CBS12 Athlete of the Week.

Favoroso moved to Florida from New Jersey in the 8th grade. It was not by chance he wound up at Jensen Beach.

"We picked here for wrestling," says Favoroso.  "No one works harder than us."

Coach Tom McMath has had 5 state champions at Jensen, but no one quite like Chris.

"You can't teach fight," says McMath. "From the start, I knew he had that in him."

Chris's promise for greatness has turned into results. He won a state championship as a Sophomore in the 170 weight class and repeated as a state champion last week at 195. 

Also a star football player, Favoroso has his eyes set on a big senior year - and the rare wrestling feat of a three-peat. Athlete of the Week: Chris Favoroso
