Standing at 6’5″  and weighing at 255 lbs. a past Penn Manor student rises to the ring and becomes Adam Mercer.

The student is known as Evan Singleton who graduated with the class of 2011. Singleton showed wrestling talent for his school and wrestled in the weight class of 285.  A tall beast that towered over younger students.

“It’s a goal he’s had since he was a kid,” said Steve Hess, Penn Manor’s wresting coach.

Hess got to know Singleton personally and, while others are intimidated of his size, Hess isn’t as frightened as the others.

“He’s not nearly as mean as he acts,” said coach Hess. Hess believes that with the intelligence and build Singleton has, he will be successful.
