GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- Life has resumed to normal for Jesse Hoffschneider, the 5A state champion wrestler at 170 lbs. At least as normal as it can get for a high school senior.

The Grand Junction senior said that he's "100% positive about going to CMU next year. I can see myself being a national champion there."

Hoffschneider's says that life as a state title winner is, in a word, "great." Every morning he wakes up to the newspaper article of his state championship hanging from the ceiling above his bed. The clipping has replaced the two articles from the previous years when he lost in the state finals. "I haven't thrown the other two articles away," Jesse said. "I'll show them to my kids one day, and show them the two articles of my losses and then show them the article of my win. It's a great story."

In fact, his success story is so great, it could even reel in a Hollywood script some day. "I don't know about that," Jesse laughed.
