"I hate losing more than I like losing. I know that's cliche and all. But I hate to lose. I don't like it. It's the worst feeling ever," said Keavon Buckley.
Keavon Buckley rarely gets that feeling in his career. He's wrestled for 14 years and loves the mental aspect of the sport. But he's so good because of the unique way he attacks opponents.
"He does a lot of things, that only little guys can do. So guys that weigh 125 pounds, they can do it, and Keavon can do it. He's real quick and also has developed that style," said Bozeman wrestling coach Nate Laslovich.
"It's just great to watch him wrestle he's got it all down. It's a fun match when he steps on the mat. It might not last the longest because he pins most of his kids in the first period but for the short time we watch it's pretty exciting," said teammate Michael Bertelsen.
At 195 pounds, Buckley is really strong. His teammate though says there's a different side of him.
"Keavon has a strong demeanor. He's seems threatening but he's like a teddy bear he's pretty nice around everybody good team player," said Bertelsen.
The state tournament is in two weeks in Billings. What kind of shot does Keavon have of winning state?
"As good as we've got. As good as anybody has. He's the type of kid in my mind he's as good as anybody in the country I mean he really is. He's like the best guy in the nation," said Laslovich.
"Win it. I've had that since last year. When I lost I just never wanted to feel that feeling again it's just something on my mind this summer just to win it that's my only goal this season," said Buckley.
