AWP - How were you able to defeat Justin Oliver who was a two-time defending state champion in the Michigan Division I state finals?
Myles – I was beaten by Justin three times last season and I wasn’t going to allowed to get beat for the fourth time. Thanks to my tough wrestling regime I have and the support of my training partners and my brother Malik, I was able to adjust my wrestling style and come out victorious.
AWP- Did your brother Malik play a big role in your success last season?
Myles –Absolutely. My brother Malik is one of the main reasons why I won a state title. We have a wrestling mat in my house and we trained to help improve each other’s wrestling skills.
AWP – Have you decided where you’re going to attend college? Will you be following the steps of your dad and brother and attend Michigan?
Myles –I love the great things Coach McFarland and staff are doing with the team, but I’m not sure if I’m going to go to Michigan. The teams I’m currently looking at are – Northwestern, Arizona State, Rutgers, Indiana, Purdue, Michigan and Michigan State. To me, wrestling and academics must go hand in hand.
AWP – How was your experience representing U.S. in the Pan Am Games in Colombia last year?
Myles–It has been one of my best experiences in wrestling so far. To represent your country in any sport event is very overwhelming. Even though I came out a bit short of winning the event, it was a great overall experience. My best match on the tournament was in the semifinals versus Honduras. I was down 4-2 against him, but was able to get him with a head and arm and get the fall to advance to the finals.
AWP –Are you a better Greco-Roman wrestler or is Freestyle your better wrestling style?
Myles – I feel that I’m a better Freestyle wrestler. I enjoy Greco-Roman, but Freestyle fits me better. This year I took 7th at Fargo and will be looking to win the whole event next year.
AWP – At the tough DCC duals in early January you had a tough day by going 1-3, what was going through your mind after the tournament?
Myles –It was a turning point in my career that day. I knew I was better than that! I told my coaches and dad that I wasn’t going to lose any more. I did many mistakes that cost me my matches.
AWP – How important have your coaches and dad been in your wrestling career?
Myles – They all have been very instrumental in my career. My dad has been my biggest supporter and critic since I started wrestling. After every match and or tournament, we sit them down and break down film to improve on my mistakes I did in the match. Without the help of my dad, Coaches Hancock, Biondo and the rest of the coaches at DCC, I wouldn’t have been a state champion last season.
AWP –Is wrestling your only sport at DCC?
Myles – Yes it is. I played football as a freshman but decide to quit to concentrate on wrestling all year long.
AWP – Do you believe that in order to be a good wrestler you have to cut a lot of weight?
Myles – Not at all. I do cut weight to wrestle, all those involve in this sport do. Only that I try to cut weight the safe way and not too much.
AWP – Are you planning on attending a pre-season event this year?
Myles - I'm not sure to be honest, there is a good chance I might attend the Grappler Fall Classic in Michigan and the Super 32 in North Carolina. I know for sure that if God willing, I will be back at FloNationals I want to win that event.
AWP – Anything else you would like to add?
Myles –I’m a great student with a 4.2 GPA. I can’t wait to win my second state title and go to college to study business.
