The 215-pounder won his four matches in the state championship meet by pin.
Honeycutt, who won 147 out of his last 148 matches at Lake Norman, now takes his All-American talents to N.C. State.
Coach of the Year: Morgan Fore, Lake Norman
Since taking over the Lake Norman program two years ago, Morgan Fore and the Wildcats have gone to new heights as they not only have gone 67-7 in that time, but also won back-to-back I-Meck and 4A West Regional titles in the process.
Fore led Lake Norman to a 34-2 mark this year, advancing to the state semifinals in the state dual tournament, the best they have ever done.
