State tournament marks the end of Paul's high school career.
Demon Logan Paul placed 5th in the OHSAA State Championships this past weekend. Competing in the 182-pound class, Paul ended his high school career at the Ohio State meet in Columbus on Saturday, March 3. This weekend’s trip was the second to states for Paul, who also competed last year, but didn’t place. “Winning my last high school match means a ton. Our coaches told me that if I’m going to go out, go out a winner,” Paul told the Morning Journal. Fans were able to follow Paul’s progress on the Westlake High School Wrestling Facebook page. On March 2, he earned a win to guarantee him at least a sixth-place finish. Saturday’s win cemented a place on the podium. Paul was given a rousing send-off on Feb. 27 from Westlake High School.
