This week’s Weekly Citizen Athlete of the Week, brought to you by Rouses Market, is senior wrestler Hunter Hawkins of St. Amant.

At the Deep South Bayou Duals tournament, Hawkins joined elite company as he reached a rare career milestone. He won seven matches at the event. One of those wins was the 200th of his career.

Hawkins was a first-team All-Metro selection as a junior. He went a superb 73-4, won a city title and finished as state runner-up in the 160-pound division.
