Hayden Horne has certainly been a quick learner. He entered his senior season with only five matches in his wrestling career. But after starting at right tackle for the Orange football team last spring, where he made All-Big 8 Conference, Horne has now qualified for the 3A State Wrestling Tournament. This season, his first as a regular starter, Horne went 13-0 wrestling at 220 pounds. On Tuesday, in the first individual wresting tournament at Orange, Horne finished 2nd at 220 pounds in the 3A East Region. He qualified for the state tournament after he pinned Northern Durham’s Tyler Kendall in 2:48. In the semifinals, Horne pinned Remington Workman of Fayetteville Westover in 1:18. Horne will be the #2 seed from the Mideast at 220 pounds for the 3A State Tournament, which will be held at Eastern Guilford High School in Gibsonville on June 26. In this interview, Horne was joined by Brendon Worsham, who was the starting left tackle for the Orange football team this season and also qualified for the 3A State Tournament at 182 pounds.
