Three Belgrade Brothers Wrestling Together

Posted: Updated:

Lyle Degen, 138 pound senior, Jarrett Degen, 132 pound sophomore, and Sawyer Degen, a 98 pound freshman, have been wrestling together since they were little kids. Their dad would take them on the road to tournaments, and they were called "Team Degen." Now in high school, the brothers help each other during matches.

"In close matches, Sawyer is usually in the finals with me. I'm always in the corner with him close matches two points and it's just awesome," said sophomore Jarrett Degen.

"It's really helpful because they teach me a lot and help me a lot they help me with like after my match if I did something wrong they tell me how to do it right or show me different moves," said freshman Sawyer Degen.

But just because they're on the same team doesn't mean they're always bonding.

"I think it's kind of overrated. It's kind of what we have at home. As far as bonding and such it really doesn't change or affect anything," said senior Lyle Degen.

"Typical brothers. You got three siblings in the room where a lot of days I feel like I'm in the Degen living room. And I'm peeling one of them off of the other and tempers flare," said head coach Randy Schram.

Even with the healthy brotherly rivalry, the brothers are proud of the Degen name.

"We don't let anyone else pick on our family you know we stand  up for our name quite a bit. We don't mind I don't mind Sawyer have some fun with some kids but if he's getting bullied Jarrett and I will step in for him," said Lyle Degen.
