Torrez Finney may be small in stature, but he is a beast on the athletic fields (wrestling & football). In fact, Finney is an all-state football player and back to back state champion in wrestling for Jones County High School. Despite having major success in both sports, scholarship offers have been slow to come in. When asked about wanting to compete on the collegiate level, Finney states “I love both sports. It’s hard to choose between the two. However, I will be more than happy and grateful to be offered a scholarship for either sport. Whoever is willing to take a chance on me, I will give them 100% effort both on the field and in the classroom. All I need is an opportunity.”

  • NOTABLE: Torrez Finney is already a NCAA academic qualifier.
