Gavin Cavalli started wrestling in 7th grade for the Bruin Wrestling Club. He was competing while his older brother, Colton, was a captain and state placer for the Mtn. View High School team. Gavin jumped into wrestling in 7th grade with very little athletic experience in any type of sports, but he made up for it with a heart of a champion.
From his 7th grade year Gavin has wrestled for the Bruin Wrestling Club all year long. He has never missed a freestyle season and always competes in the Mtn. View team camps at Utah Valley University and in Las Vegas each summer. Gavin also participates in the UVU fall league on Saturdays every September & October. Gavin has competed at the Utah High School State meet all 3 years since he wrestled varsity 106 lbs. his freshman year. Gavin has come close to placing at state twice and hopes to make the medal stand this year at the 126 lb. weight class.
Above all Gavin Cavalli has grit, determination, and a love for wrestling. As a first year 7th grader he nearly lost every match, but he never quit! Gavin is a mentor and captain for the high school wrestling team and can be found doing crossfit, open mat, and working with younger wrestlers after school on a regular basis.
