7 Year Old Girl Wrestler Dominates

Posted: Updated:
Jessica Gubler has always loved wrestling. The seven year old went to her brother's practices when she was one, practiced since she was three, and this is the first year the Livingston native has competed.

Why did she decide to start wrestling? "Because it was fun," said Jessica Gubler.

Most young girls play with dolls and wear dresses, so why does she love playing a predominantly boy's sport?

"Probably cause raised her like a little boy. She's never liked skirts from when she could talk," said her dad Blaise Gubler.

"Took us a couple years to convince her mom to even allowing her to get on the mat. She's a kid that has a very unique skill set in that she never gives up. She goes hard all the time," said her coach Jeremy Shields.

Being a girl gives Jessica an advantage over the boys right now.

"I think girls are stronger at a younger age they're more mature so they pick it up a little faster, work harder, listen more," says her dad.

When she wrestles boys, Jessica dominates them.

"In all honesty this little girl is more rougher than most of the boys in the room. She has two older brothers, and she just gets after it there's no stopping her," says her coach.

"She tries really hard she's really coachable. She works harder than most of the boys. And then she makes a lot of the boys cry," says her dad.

Because Jessica had several top 3 finishes in duals this year, She qualified for grand-nationals in Billings this weekend, and has one goal.

"Winning," says Gubler.

"With the athletic ability she has with the work ethic she has.  She can go as far in this sport as she chooses," says her coach.
