Around the Horn with Triton's Cody Nixon

Triton Regional High School senior Cody Nixon just wrapped up his impressive high school wrestling career, which culminated with a Cape Ann League championship that doubled as his 100th career win.

In this week’s Around the Horn, Nixon spoke about his career, his favorite memories and what he hopes the future has in store for him.

Mac: Now that your wrestling career is over, tell me about how the past four years have been for you?

Cody: It’s been a lot of hard work, and it’s a family once you go in that room. There’s nothing like it. That’s what brought me back, the whole team thing. Once those doors close during practice, it’s a whole different mindset. It’s like [teammate] Mark [Boyle] said, that’s our team, you come into this mat and it’s go time.

Mac: You won your 100th career match at CALs a couple of weeks ago, but then the rest of the postseason didn’t go quite as smoothly. What happened?

Cody: A couple of weeks ago I recorded my 100th career win at CALs, but then I got hurt at Sectionals and my first match at States I had to default out because I couldn’t handle it, my shoulder was in rough shape. It’s not the way I wanted to go out, but my team had my back and there’s nothing like that.

Mac: Outside of wrestling, what other activities do you do?

Cody: I like to work, I’m a working man. I’m planning on going to college. I work at a golf course, Olde Newbury, and in the offseason I wrestle at Smitty’s Barn. I’m probably going to keep doing that.

Mac: If you can, will you wrestle in college?
