Brett Prezkop has steadily and quietly established himself as only the 11th wrestler in MCA history to surpass the 100-win mark. He joins Mike Garcia (140), Josh Malick (140), James Haynes (137), Dylan Hornberger (130), Eric Lapotsky (122), Nick Dusendshine (121), Dave Evans (112), Shane Wondoloski (110), Randy Elliott (109), and Dave Fantini (105). He is also the captain of the 2012 wrestling team at MCA.

Brett’s record demonstrates his consistency throughout his career: 21-15 as a freshman, 30-10 as a sophomore, 30-8 as a junior, and 22-1 in 2011-2012. He was a Sectional runner-up and District qualifier as a sophomore and junior. Brett was ranked #12 in the state of Pennsylvania at the end of 2010-2011. He entered the District IV Southern Sectional Tournament as the Number One seed and would go on to pin both of his opponents to win his first Southern Sectional Championship at 170 pounds. Brett finished in second place at the District IV meet and the Northeast Regional meet and entered the state tournament with a 28-3 record. Prezkop would become the first MCA wrestler to medal at states since 2008 after earning an 8th place medal at the tournament and finishing the season at 30-6 and 111-39 for his career.

Brett was also an outstanding defensive end for the Red Tornado football squad, a team that won the Heartland Conference and District 4 Championship this year. He lead the team in sacks with 10.5 and was third in tackles with 87. He was named to the News-Item, Daily Item and Press Enterprise All Star teams. He has been recognized as the Ed Romance Chapter Athlete of the Month for March. Brett is the son of Robin and Harry Przekop.
