Nick Oberstaedt, son of Dave and Melissa Oberstaedt, is our Jet’s Pizza Male Athlete of the Week.
He is a senior at Page High School and a member of the varsity boys wrestling team.
He is in the 145 weight class and is a former state placer and has a current record of 29-0.
Oberstaedt got his start in wrestling through his sister. He said that she played softball and her coach was also the wrestling coach.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete, he gave three answers: his faith, coaches and parents.
“They have shaped me into the person I am,” he said of his parents.
One of his biggest role models and inspirations is former Page wrestler, Andrew Birchett.
“He pushed me hard every day in practice and has got me to levels I never knew I could reach,” he said.
PHS Head Wrestling Coach said of Oberstaedt, “As a varsity wrestling coach, it is not often that I come across young adults who are so dedicated to their goals and team. I am humbled to have Nick lead Page wrestling as a coachable athlete and a young man with integrity.
After graduating from Page this year, Oberstaedt plans to attend The University of Tennessee at Knoxville to study supply chain management.
