Massillon’s Own, Ivan McClay carved his name in the High School History books by winning the 2013 State Championships becoming the City’s First and Only State Champion.
4 Years later, he found his way on Top of the Podium once again by capturing the NCAA Division II National Title at 125 lbs. Now wrestling for Notre Dame College (Cleveland), his name will forever be recognized as a National Champion.
As if that wasn’t enough, Ivan also earned 1st Team Academic All-American as well.
With one more year of eligibility, it won’t be a surprise to see him on Top of the Podium next year.
Ever since getting his hand raised for the first time to winning his first tournament, he’s continued to create habits that keep him heading in the right direction. He’s lived up to the quote:
First we create habits, then our habits create us…
For those that know Ivan, know that he’ll continue to get better, get smarter and push himself to limits where most people won’t go. All I know is it’s going to fun to watch.
We can’t forget to Congratulate the McClay Family. It has to be extremely satisfying seeing this guy accomplish goals not many are able to do. You all Rock!!!
