Hi! I am Dalton Blankenship and I was born in Rome, Georgia, which is about an hour northwest of Atlanta, on August thirty-first, two thousand. Growing up I always enjoyed sports and being the best at what I did, and with my father being a wrestling coach I decided to start wrestling. This was in the fifth grade and was a pentacle decision in my life because after this day I not only learned the sport of wrestling, but many life lessons, life long friends, and this decision led me to Davidson. Wrestling has helped me develop a mental strength, which I can not only use in the sport but in the everyday challenges that I face. Wrestling has been a motivator for me to wake up and strive for excellence not only on the mat, but also in life. It also led me to Davidson having the wrestling team here along with a great education, which will hopefully lead me to great things in the future.
