PLYMOUTH â€” Jacob Segravesâ€™ passion for wrestling isnâ€™t a lifelong love affair, but one that grew over time.
Itâ€™s a love affair that heâ€™ll get to continue at the collegiate level as the Plymouth senior recently signed on with Manchester College.
â€śIâ€™m pretty excited to be able to wrestle at the next level,â€ť Segraves said. â€śThatâ€™s something that I didnâ€™t really think about because I never really pictured myself wrestling.
