Shortly after the untimely passing of his father, Apolonio Cabello, Mario set out to win the State Championship Title in his father’s honor. Following this victory, Mario continued to wrestle for Righetti High School where he took honors classes. Mario became the first ever homecoming king from Guadalupe in 1994, his graduating year. He was always so proud and loyal to his hometown of Guadalupe, and very honored to represent Guadalupe wherever he went.
