Since Dec. 2, Frank Taylor III has turned a corner.

Coming into this year, the Ninety Six junior had already proven himself in his brief high school wrestling career. He got a pin in the 2022 Wildcats state championship win against Timberland and a week later finished in the top three at the 152-pound weight class as a sophomore. He placed fourth in the state in the 152-individual state championship as a freshman.
