At Saturday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association tournament, the senior became only the fourth wrestler to win four titles since the league was formed in 1994. Friedman won a 13-2 major decision in the 126-pound final, and he was also named the tournament's outstanding wrestler. Known for his durability and determination — he hasn't missed a match this season despite a partially torn medial collateral ligament in his knee — Friedman is 41-8. He is also an A student and will wrestle at the University of Pennsylvania.
