It is hard not to think of the name Rudy and not think of the underdog former football player from Notre Dame who overcame adversity to make the Irish roster. The name has become synonymous with the overachieving underdog.
For Veterans Memorial High School, they have a Rudy of their own, with a slight twist. Senior Rudy Gonzalez is the Patriot's star wrestler, not an underdog. In last weekend's (Saturday and Monday) District 31-5A championships, Rudy took home the title in the 125-lb. weight class. Of course, if you know this wrestler, you know a district championship routine for the star athlete. Rudy has now won back-to-back-to-back-to-back district championships. When it comes to the district, there is no underdog in this Rudy.
