Boy Who Got 'Fat Letter' Wins State Wrestling Title
The Booster wrestlers brought home multiple state titles this weekend.
If Cameron Watson was at all upset by the letter sent home from his school telling his parents we was classified as "obese," he's probably over it by now.
Especially since Cameron, member of the North Andover Boosters Club wrestling team, won his state wrestling championship this weekend.
Cameron, 10, now holds the state title in his weight class at 94 lbs. He went 3-0 and won the state title in Salem on Saturday by pinning his opponent in just under 30 seconds.
The North Andover Boosters emerged with three state champions, four silver medals and two who placed in fourth place.
- Cameron Watson, William Shimoeller and Jack Dalton are state champions.
- Tommy Cox, Luke Conti, Jeremy Carriere and Braeden Farr won silver medals.
- Wally Foote and Jack Sallas won bronze medals.
- Carson Milovich won a copper medal.
Cameron had a busy week. After the story about the BMI letters spread online and through cable news, with television news crews interviewing him and his guest appearance on Fox & Friends, the media spotlight was probably overwhelming. A state wrestling title is a nice way to top off that kind of week.
"The fat letter stuff has been far surpassed by State Champ!" Cameron's mother, Selectman Tracy Watson, said. "Cameron has wanted a trophy since he was like three. We always told him work for one and it will come."
