He's the underdog in today's Class 2B/1B 103-pound championship, but that's nothing new for Demitri Robinson, who's always had to scrap and already is a champion in life.
The high school freshman entered this weekend's state tournament as the only wrestler to ever compete for Tulalip Heritage. He wears the singlet of Marysville-Pilchuck High School, for whom he competed all season because his school has no program.
He is also representing his tribe and, in a way, every foster child who has dared to dream of better days.
Robinson is so many things to so many people, and tonight he will try to reward them with a state championship.
