2. Justin Wilson and Deziray Graham

Bowie’s Justin Wilson finished fifth in the 123 pound division at the Texas High School Powerlifting Association state meet.

The other two athletes to earn medals at state events this past year were Bowie’s Justin Wilson and Nocona’s Deziray Graham. Both athletes competed at the state powerlifting meet and walked away with medals. In a year of great individual performances, they were the only other athletes to walk away with hardware from a state event and deserve praise for that.
