A young wrestler formerly from Glendora, Calif. has been nominated for a youth sports award and needs votes to win the national title.
Cade Olivas has been nominated by Youth1.com for the Wrestler of the Year award, as well as Male Athlete of the Year. The Youthees is the first youth sports awards and is awarded to young athletes and coaches who excel both on and off the fields.

Olivas told Youth1.com, “I do something every day – running distances and sprints and hills and weight training.”
