To learn more about Hutchison, VYPE Magazine caught up with Hutchison before dual state and the state tournament.
VYPE: Nate, what do you love most about your team and teammates?
Hutchison: The biggest thing I love about my teammates is their desire to come in everyday, bust their butts, and strive to learn something new.
VYPE: Do you have a favorite subject in school or a favorite teacher?
Hutchison: My favorite subject in school has to be science but my favorite teacher has to be Mr. Calaway.
VYPE: Who has been a big influence in your life, on or off the mat?
Hutchison: I think that my parents have been the biggest influence in my life. Growing up I was taught to do what I love and to be myself and I don’t think I would be the person I am today if I didn’t have them.
