Do you remember a few months ago when a Buena Regional High School wrestler was forced to cut off his dreads during a match?

Andrew Johnson has proven to not have let that circumstance define him. Johnson placed 3rd in his district, which means he is now eligible for the prestigious regional championships.

According to TMZ, Johnson secured 3rd place at the NJSIAA/Rothman Orthopaedics District 29 tournament in New Jersey over the weekend in the 120-pound division.

When NJ.com asked how he did it, he said  "I tried to block everything out and just wrestle."
