There’s always interesting characters with stories to tell on any school campus. So when I heard about the lone female student on the McCallum wrestling team who was also on track to compete at the state competition for a second year in a row, I knew I had to meet her. Despite having an array of what I viewed as extremely impressive accomplishments, London did not talk much about herself in our interview. You see, London’s story was one of unmatched determination — determination to succeed, but also to see her team’s success. Even though wrestling is largely an individual sport, London spent as much of her time training as she did on building a team spirit. This broadcast package strengthened my interviewing skills and taught me get to the heart of a story.
