Eisenhower sophomore Louie Head is coming into his own. At 14-0, he’s ranked among the top 152-pounders in District 10 Class AA. In the past week, Head added his second tournament title of the season, this time going 4-0 to win his weight class at the Falconer (N.Y.) Tournament. Head earned a 9-5 decision over Harbor Creek’s Matt Newara in the championship round for Warren County’s lone individual title (Sheffield and Eisenhower attended). Earlier this week, Head added a pin at Iroquois, and he’s the Times Observer Male Athlete of the Week, sponsored by McDonald’s heading into the North East Tournament this weekend.
