Q&A: Kaneland wrestler Goress prepares for season
Kaneland senior wrestler Dan Goress advanced to the IHSA Class 2A state meet at 138 pounds last season, and is one of three returning Knights who competed in Champaign. Goress also is among a large group of experienced seniors, and for that reason enters the 2012-13 season brimming with optimism. Kane County Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley caught up with Goress for this week’s edition of the Weekend Chit-Chat, addressing Goress’ outlook on wrestling and briefly looking back at Kaneland’s recently completed football season, in which Goress played linebacker for the 10-1 Knights. The following is an edited transcript:

Esai Ponce, Stephen Gust, Zach Theis, Luke Kreiter, Sonny Horn, David Barnhart, Connor Williams and Nick Sharp, along with me. We’re ready.
