Our KAKE Sports Athlete of the Week is just a freshman but already has made a huge impression on the wrestling mat.

Idris Elias Jr. is currently the top-ranked wrestler in Class 5A at 106 pounds and dreams about one day wrestling for the University of Iowa.

If his name sounds familiar, it's because his dad was an All City running back in 1995 and 1996 at West.

Idris Elias Jr. wants to leave his mark at West as well. His goal is to win four state titles, something only one West wrestler has ever accomplished.

Coach Kenny Taylor calls Elias a coach's dream. "I never have to ask him twice, he works hard...one of the hardest workers i've ever seen," Taylor said.
