Rosewood’s Tortual Taking Wrestling Talents To UMO

Watch Logan Tortual on the wrestling mat, and you will find a combination of things he has learned throughout his stellar high school career at Rosewood.

There is the technique he has learned while working out in the wrestling room. You see the passion, desire, and determination to excel in a sport that is built on failure as much as it is on success.

And Tortual, undoubtedly, has excelled so far.

Tortual, who won a state championship last season, will expand on his talents next season after he signed a national letter of intent with the University of Mount Olive.

“It’s kind of relieving because I know where I’m going to go in the future,” Tortual said.

Tortual joins an upstart wrestling program that is only in its third year of existence, and he is ready to do whatever it takes to help the UMO wrestling program keep growing.

“I first heard about UMO because my brother went there, and when they started the wrestling program, and a bunch of people I knew were going, and that’s what brought it to light,” Tortual said.

Throughout his high school career, Tortual dominated wrestlers with his quick feet. He prevailed went 28-0 last season, and in the state tournament, he pinned every opponent he faced.

He has a career 116-24 overall record, with 84 of his victories coming via pin.

“Logan has been at it since about the sixth grade, and after his freshman year, he really started putting in all the extra time and work,” Rosewood wrestling coach Hal Kilpatrick said. “He’s put in the time, and it’s paid off.”

Confident in his ability with a work ethic to match, Tortual is ready to win another state title this season before he heads off the UMO next season.

“Repeat and somehow be more dominant than last year,” Tortual said.
