Zabala: Portrait of Athlete of the Month
Patch editors and photographers snap portraits of Joliet Patch Athlete of the Month winners and present each of them with keepsake digital images.
Patch local editors and photographers recognize Joliet Patch's Athlete of the Month each month with a portrait such as the one above of Joliet Central wrestling standout Trayvon Zabala.
Zabala placed third in the 120-pound weight class at the IHSA state tournament in Champaign. He finished with a record of 48-1 for the season and 155-11 for his four-year career at Joliet Central.
And he became the first Steelmen individual to win three state wrestling medals since Greg Maxey in the mid-1970s. Zabala was selected as Joliet Patch's Athlete of the Month for February from a list of Patch MVP weekly winners by Patch Local Editor Ron Kremer.
