MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Mount Vernon High School senior David Watkins came into this year's wrestling season unknown, having  missing his junior year with an ankle injury.

But his strong performances last month have established him as a serious contender in the 220-pound class of the upcoming Section 1 Large School Championships.

Watkins won three January tournaments and was a runner-up in a fourth, earning him selection as The Mount Vernon Daily Voice's January Student-Athlete of the Month.

Watkins opened January with a victory in the Scarsdale Tournament, his first tournament title. He followed up winning the Chris Hernandez Tournament at Yonkers and the Edgemont Tournament and closed out the month with a second-place finish in the Super 16.

Watkins, currently 20-2 on the season, competes this weekend in the Section 1 Large School Championships.
