Congratulations to OPRF wrestler Davonte Mahomes, the Wednesday Journal's Athlete of the Week sponsored by Midtown Athletic Club.

Mahomes is off to a 5-0 start this season and he's currently the top-ranked wrestler at 170 pounds, according to

The outstanding senior grappler also placed first at a national tournament in Fargo, North Dakota last summer. Coming off a 39-1 record including a third-place finish at state last season, the University of Michigan-bound Mahomes is primed for a spectacular final campaign with the nationally renowned OPRF wrestling program.

"My goals are to go undefeated this year and win state," he said. "I just want to work hard and do it the right way."

At Michigan, Mahomes plans on studying business and might pursue a law degree.
