Des Moines, IA- June 30, 2009- Men oft times go by many names. In the case
of our June High School Wrestler of the Month, Morgan McIntosh, the
moniker of champion has been attached to his God given name nearly as many times
as the number of years he has spent on the planet. As a registered member
of the Kickapoo tribe of Oklahoma, he is also known as Ane Kwa peta.

Morgan is 16 years old, a resident of Santa Ana, CA, where he completed
his Sophomore year at Calvary Chapel High School in Costa Mesa. Morgan
entered Calvary Chapel as a Freshman, having completed his years of home
schooling, a formula that has proved successful for his four siblings before him,
Morgan being the youngest.

Morgan grew up surrounded by strong work ethic, and with a preponderance
for what it takes to become a wrestler, let alone a champion. Morgan's
parents, Brooke and Rebecca, contributed greatly, and provided appropriately, to
allow him to participate in countless clubs and competitions, along with
the travel that was required. Brooke, a professional horse shoer for 30
years, and a former wrestler himself, exhibited the balance of strength and
skill Morgan picked up, applying it to thousands of hours on the mat. Morgan's
engagement with wrestling began easily and instantly when Rebecca located
a flier for a local club, instantly perking Morgan's interest. Days later,
the birth of a champion wrestler.

Fast forward to his high school career, where he completed his freshman
year , going 41-5, and securing 5th in state at 160 lbs. This year he
finished with the 171 lb. title, in the nations most populous state, and where 820
schools compete in a single class. He carried a 43-0 perfect season
record, and earned the Champion of Champions Award, a result of voting among his
peers, based on his complete personal presentation, both on and off the
mat. As can be expected of Morgan, he accepted the award with understated

The road from age 7, when he entered the sport, to his most recent state
title, is one paved with complete dedication, as well as requisite
challenges. As Morgan was home schooled during his elementary education, wrestling
provided a great source of interaction with other kids his age. His parents
pursued every opportunity that was possible for Morgan to learn, train, and
compete. He competed in the USA Nationals as many times as the family was
able to afford, always finishing in the top three for Freestyle, placing
three times in Greco, including 1st Place, and was a Folkstlye National

Along the way, he has also been a State Freestyle and Greco Champion, a
two time triple crown winner, twice the Junior High Freestyle Champion, and
was awarded the Most Valuable 8th Grade Award title. He also credits a Tulsa
Nationals title to his name.

He faced one of his greatest challenges in April during the Junior Western
Regionals in Las Vegas, when he dislocated his elbow, still finishing 4th.
The McIntosh family feared he would be sidelined for the Summer, although
Morgan bested all predictions and recovered in time for the Cadet Nationals
in Fargo. He completed the event as a finalist in both tournaments,
ultimately losing at 189 lbs. to Andrew Campolitano of New Jersey, the second
ranked high school wrestler for the past season.

Morgan's experience and success on the mat certainly defines well rounded.
Impressive records, varied styles, multiple weight classes, and the titles
to his name only begin to describe him as a person. He is a avid reader,
and excels in History, and Social Sciences. He always delivers an A in Bible
studies, and takes an active role in his schools Youth Group, making
contributions to many different communities.

Head Calvary Chapel Coach Arsen Aleksanyen provided great guidance to
Morgan from the day he arrived at Chapel Calvary. Assistant Coaches Josh
Holladay and Jake Harmon, are also Youth Pastors, leading the Youth Group, and
providing strong inspiration to Morgan. Recently the group has been working
on developing new fish farming techniques, employing hydroponics, to provide
alternate food sources for missions in Mexico. Morgan completely enjoys
learning ways he can help people that are less fortunate than him.

He is already focused on college, knowing he will apply his great
wrestling experience and talent during his higher education. He also owns a keen
interest in the military, and may pursue a career there. He certainly shows
the attributes that are necessary to become a leader in one of our nations
greatest, and most important resources.

TakeDown Radio, and all of the award sponsors, are very proud to select
Morgan as the June recipient. He becomes the tenth remarkable young person to
earn the prestigious award.

TakeDown Radio would like to thank the sponsors of the High School
Wrestler of the Month Award. Without Resilite, W.I.N. Magazine, Brute adidas,
Intermat, and Sunflower Wrestling Supply, the award would not be possible. We
are all very pleased to place our support in some of the nation's most
promising youth.
