Richmond Hill wrestler Trenton Higginbotham is apparently one tough wrestler.
The youth won the Iron Man in his weight class at the 2014 Georgia Games at North Paulding High School back in April,
There were 328 participants who traveled from 149 cities and four states to attend the competition. 
 Wrestlers participated in folkstyle, Greco and freestyle, and earned the chance to compete in the Iron Man if they competed in all three styles of wrestling and had the highest average score in their division. 
After its introduction to the tournament format in 2008, the Georgia Game’s Iron Man competition enticed wrestlers to compete in all three styles. 
The premise behind this tournament was to save wrestling from dissolving as a sport in the Olympic Games. Higginbotham won in the 14U 112-pound division.  
 The top three finishers from every category earned the right to represent Georgia in the 2015 National State Games of America, an Olympic-Style festival featuring competition between state game winners from across the nation in Lincoln, Nebraska.
