Super Vega brothers

Like many young boys growing up, Anthony and Angel Vega grew up watching the World Wrestling Federation on TV. But the twin brothers got tired of just watching wrestling, and they decided join the local high school wrestling team and throw their own bodies around.

Anthony and Angel Vega are two of the many freshmen that joined the Panthers’ wrestling team this season. The twin brothers joined the team as freshmen coming out of Lindhurst High School, located in Olivehurst, Calif., just outside of Yuba City.

The brothers decided to start wrestling in eighth grade, but initially struggled while learning the sport their first couple of years.

“Wrestling was hard and we weren’t really good at it. It wasn’t until summer going into sophomore year that we fell in love with the sport,” says Angel.

With support and encouragement from family members, the brothers stuck with wrestling. After excelling throughout high school, both the brothers decided to bring their skill set to the City College wrestling team.

As freshmen, the Vega brothers have already made an impression on Panthers wrestling head coach Dave Pacheco who is excited with what they bring to the team besides winning their matches.

“Their work ethic is a great contribution. They are quiet and very hard working guys who set a great example for the team.” says Pacheco. “[They’re] spark plugs, they go go go like Energizer bunnies, 100 percent on everything.”

Although Pacheco likes how well the Vega brothers get along, he thinks it would be beneficial if they learned to broaden their drilling partners to build new skills.

“They get along great with others but they love drilling with each other. Practicing with others would be helpful and also make them stronger wrestlers,” says Pacheco.

Angel and Anthony are still taking note of the many differences when wrestling at the collegiate level compared to the high school level.

“It is way more intense, something I didn’t expect. Coaches are different and every tournament is hard,” says Anthony Vega.

The Vega brothers both bring different wrestling styles to the mat, Anthony Vega described himself as being a “situational wrestler and grappler,” while his brother described himself as more of an aggressive wrestler. It can get repetitive with names so one way around that is to try different descriptors to differentiate them.

Anthony not only likes his twin’s company on the team, but he also find it beneficial to becoming a better wrestler,

“Having my brother on the team helps me get better, just knowing that I always have someone there. We have a competitive relationship that makes me work harder. I see him working hard so I’m going to try and work even harder than him,” says Anthony.
