Kennerly began wrestling as an eighth grader when he was cut from the basketball team. As a junior at Upper Darby, he won 40 matches and was a state meet qualifier.

As a senior, he won the Super 32 Tournament in October then advanced to the PIAA Championships, earning his 100th career victory, completing an undefeated season (38-0) and capturing the state title at 220 pounds with an overtime victory.

He has committed to the University of Virginia.

Ngaima, who came to the United States from Sierra Leone at the age of nine, suffered a knee injury during his freshman football season at Penn Wood. His parents would not allow him to participate in the sport when he was a sophomore.

An outstanding student, he resumed his football career as a junior and earned All-Del Val League honors as junior and senior. He also earned a National Academy of Future Physicians and Scientists Award of Excellence.

He was offered scholarships by six Division I schools but chose to commit to the United States Air Force Academy.
