ARCADIA - Riley White, Hamilton Heights' senior, has signed a letter of intent to wrestle for Lyon College in Batesville, Ark., this fall. Lyon College is a member of the Crossroads League and American Midwest Conference (AMC). Riley is the son of Dave and Betty White.

White selected Lyon College to continue his post-secondary education and wrestle because it had a similar feel and size to Hamilton Heights. "The atmosphere, people and coaches were great," said Riley White, who felt this academically supportive environment would help him excel as a student athlete. White plans to major in business and minor in physical education. He would like to pursue a career in business or teach physical education and coach high school sports.

White, a multi-sport athlete (wrestling, football and baseball), helped the Huskies football team to three conference championships and served as a team captain. He was the Mooresville Holiday Classic Wrestling Runner-up; three-time semi-state qualifier in wrestling, sectional champion, two-time conference champion, county champion, all-county, and ended his senior year with a 41-3 record.

White started wrestling in sixth grade but says he really became passionate about the sport during his freshman year when he met Coach Gary Myers. Since that time, he worked hard training countless hours a day to build his strength, endurance and skill set to be a force to contend with on the mat. He credits his parents, brother Ryan Uhrick, and Coaches Gary Myers, Cody McCance, Bruce O'Neal, Jigger Smith, Terry Reed, Tim Weber, and Tom Erikson along with former HHHS wrestler, Isaac Ray for their support, encouragement, and influence throughout his high school wrestling career.

When White, who is a hard worker and plans to do big things at the collegiate level, is not playing sports or working out, he enjoys hanging out with friends and riding dirt bikes a 4-wheelers.

Gary Myers, Hamilton Heights Wrestling Coach said, "let this be a lesion to every athlete. Working hard every day in and out of the classroom whether you win a state title or not will pay off! Riley's work ethic was the reason so many college coaches gave him offers!"

"I'm so proud of Riley," said Matt Wallace, Hamilton Heights Baseball Coach. "He is a great example of what being a husky athlete is all about. A three-sport athlete and a leader in all three, Riley's work ethic is second to none. He is one tough kid. I know he will do great things at Lyon College!"

"Riley has been a model student/athlete for Hamilton Heights the past four years," said Kurt Ogden, Hamilton Heights Athletic Director. He is a very hardworking and polite young man with a ton of talent. His skills have been a driving force in the success we've experienced in football, wrestling and baseball the past four years so he will be sorely missed. We are excited that he gets the opportunity to continue his wrestling career at Lyon College and we wish him the best."
