Sidney Flores, Bishop Amat

SoCal Prep Legends
Boys Athlete of the Week
Name: Sidney Flores
School: Bishop Amat
Sport: Wrestling
Year: Senior

Winning Numbers: In a poll that was just short of 42,000 votes, Sidney Flores garnered 700 more votes than second-place finisher Josh Loomer from Cajon, totaling nearly 19,000 votes for the week. Classmates on the Bishop Amat campus can proudly call Flores the SCPL Boys Athlete of the Week.
Flores became the first Bishop Amat wrestler to advance to the state finals and he did it by posting arguably the biggest upset of the tournament when he beat No. 1 seed and previously undefeated Ethan Leake of Clovis Buchanan in the semifinals. The performance helped Flores, who will attend the Air Force Academy next year, qualify for nationals in April.
