Fairmont senior wrestler Tommy Kimbrell has committed to Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., to continue his education and wrestling.

Kimbrell is a tri-captain this year for the Fairmont Firebird Varsity Wrestling team and has more than 100 career wins. He is also close to the all-time win record at Fairmont, among several other achievements. Kimbrell is currently 26-0 with titles at the Firebird Classic, Cincinnati Coaches Classic and the Brecksville Holiday Tournament.

“Obviously, we are all extremely proud of Tommy. To be honest, though, it’s not a surprise. Stanford is getting a young man that is extremely intelligent and hard-working both on and off the mat. I believe Tommy will do really well at Stanford. He will receive a world-class education and compete for a great athletic program,” said Wrestling Head Coach Frank Baxter.

Kimbrell is a probable 174-pounder for the Cardinal and will major in Mechanical Engineering.
