Creamer Crowned Back-to-Back State Champion


Lots of people dream of one day winning a state championship in their respective activities, but none really start to think about two. Jack Creamer made his name known all around the halls of Dominion last year after winning his first state championship in an OT thriller. After going 44-0 in the 2018/19 regular season, Creamer topped off his incredible regular season by winning another state championship at Riverside vs Logan Pierson, of Great Bridge High School, by a score of 9-2.

Creamer practiced nearly every day in the off-season, even when he was injured or sick. “It feels really good to be a repeat State Champion and I really feel like all the hard work I put in paid off,” Creamer said.

Jack’s hard work has been recognized by both teammates and coaches. “He works harder than everyone else. He never misses a workout in the off season.  He trains and wrestles all year long. I can see the look in his face when he is pushing himself and know that he is trying to get better and better,” Dominion’s head wrestling coach, Billy Young, said. “He always pushes himself past his limits even when he feels like taking it easy,” Jack’s Dominion wrestling teammate, Diego Pena, said.

As amazing as this accomplishment is, people close to Jack saw it coming. “It was not a shock that Jack was winning another state championship. He did it the year before and he kept the same work ethic from last year through the offseason so it was expected for him to get his second title,” Diego Pena said.

Creamer gave a lot of credit all around the wrestling world for his successes in his past two championships. “I give credit to my dad, Dan Scanlan (off-season wrestling coach), all my Dominion coaches, and especially all my teammates and wrestling partners,” Creamer said. “Without all of their help, I do not know where I would be.”

Even with Jack giving credit to lots of other people, Coach Young made sure to let people remember this is, truly, his accomplishment. It is awesome of course.  He did it. People compliment me about his success and I tell them that he was already good, I just keep him in shape,” said Coach Young.

Creamer is not basking in his championship light, but already focused on winning a third straight title, “The next thing for me and my teammates is to get back to work because we have to put in more work than our opponents and in order to succeed. A three-peat is obviously the goal and I want to finish out on top.”

Although Creamer is focused on getting his third state championship next year, he will never forget this amazing undefeated season this year. “This season has been one I will never forget and I’ll always remember it,” said Creamer.
