Driven: Sgt. Justin Lester

Ohio has produced some of the greatest athletes in the world of sports- LeBron James, Ken Griffey Jr., Le’Veon Bell, Shawn Porter and others were born and raised in the state and have taken their careers to the highest level in sports. Now we can add another name to the list of great athletes from The Buckeye State.

Sergeant Justin Lester joined the Army in 2010. The World Class Athlete Program athlete is a Fire Direction Specialist and a six-time National Champion Wrestler. The Northern Michigan University graduate competes in Greco Roman Wrestling and was a member of the 2012 Olympic team.
