Tighe, a three-time state champion, will wrestle for Binghamton beginning in the fall. The Section 3 senior took fifth as a freshman at 112 pounds for the Firebirds at the Division II state tournament, before going all the way to the top of the podium in Albany at 119, 126 and 138 pounds in his final three high school campaigns. He added several All-American showings to his resume, including a fifth place finish at the NHSCA Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach last month.

According to the press release, the award is based on “excellence in wrestling, scholastic achievement, citizenship and community service.”

The previous two Empire State honorees were Brian Realbuto of Somers High School in 2012 (now at Cornell) and Nick Gwiazdowski of Duanesburg High in 2011 (now at NC State).
