As a Senior, Captain, and an All-American Wrestler, Garrett Roskelly’s wrestling techniques have continually improved with his off-season Club Wrestling.
Some students, you can just tell, they have it or they just “get it.” Garrett is one of those guys. The true challenge of wrestling is the mental battle that goes into each match. Wrestling is 99.5 % mental. Garrett is mastering the mental aspect of the sport. His technique improved every practice and with every competition, he improved his mental, physical, and emotional focus. So much so, he came one bout from qualifying for the national tournament. However, he was instrumental in bringing wrestling awareness to the team and some of his diligent attention to his teammates and their potential brought mat awareness to the entire team. PAS turned into a cradle powerhouse.

In the off-season, Garrett continues to travel around New England, NY, and PA to wrestle matches, representing IronFaith Wrestling club. Now an All-American Wrestler placing in the top 4 at the NuWay Revolution National Tournament.

Wrestling: Coach, Mike McLarney, Portsmouth Abbey
We (the coaches) think Garrett has a big future ahead of him in wrestling. We feel he will explode onto the collegiate DIII wrestling scene, we have discussed this outside of the arena in many sessions, and with his year-round club wrestling and tournaments is the exact commitment he needs to make an impact within collegiate wrestling circles.

Club Wrestling: Coach, Ebed Jarrell, Iron Faith
“Garrett is one of the most consistent athletes we have. Rarely does he miss a practice or competition, and never without a heads up. Day in and day out, Garrett gives a full effort with no complaints. I am proud to be one of his coaches and I’m excited for what his future holds.”

Lacrosse: Coach, Steven Pietraszek, Portsmouth Abbey
“Garrett is great to work with on the lacrosse field. He loves the game, wants to hustle, learn, and enjoy his time out on the field. He is the first to run to a line for a drill and the first to congratulate a teammate on a good play. Garrett is willing to listen and learn on and off the field.”

Football: Coach, Moffie, Portsmouth Abbey
It has been an absolute pleasure a coaching Garrett. He came to every practice with a positive attitude and willingly did anything to help the team get better. Garrett embraced his role on the offensive and defensive scout teams. Our starting offense and defense made great strides this season because of Garrett’s hard work and leadership during practice. During our final game of the season, it was really enjoyable watching Garrett compete with his classmates and make a tackle. I want to thank Garrett for all his hard work this season and I look forward to watching him wrestle this winter.

Norman Bird Sanctuary: Heather Krieger, Camp Director
“Garrett was a support camp counselor and was a pleasure to work with this summer. He is respectful and reliable, had a positive attitude each day, and was incredibly supportive to his camp groups. He quickly developed strong relationships with campers and was such an asset to our team”. Garrett volunteered a total of 245 and received the Volunteer of the Year Award.
