Although most children are told to “play nice,” Jaydin Clayton was brought up slamming, throwing and pinning others his age. Clayton is on the Youth Wrestling League and a member of the Eierman Elite team. He’s been competing to come out on top since age 5 and has made numerous wrestling accomplishments in the 10 years he’s been in the sport.

Clayton moved to Fulton last fall to be closer to his long-time wrestling coach and mentor Mike Eierman of Fulton. The young wrestler is an eighth-grade student at Kingdom Christian Academy. He explains that he enjoys wrestling because not everyone can do it.
