SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- So far this season, wrestler Noah Samms is 16-4. He finished fourth in the Union County Tournament last weekend and second in the Holmdel Holiday Tournament. Beyond that, wrestling coach Marc Fabiano desribes him as "one of the hardest workers I have ever had in my 9-year career." For his exceptional performances to date, Noah Samms is this week's Joint Motion Physical Therapy Athlete of the Week. 

After an injury that took him out of much of last year, Samms is wrestling this season like he is on a mission. A key match so far this season that really showed his potential was during the Holmdel Holiday Tournament when he lost to a wrestler who is ranked 8th in the state by only 9 points. He also had that opponent on his back and almost pinned him.
