Last season as a Sophomore, Turner improved to 21-17, placing 5th in the Allegheny County Tournament, 5th in the Section (2-AAA), and was a WPIAL Qualifier. Turner is off to a great start going 10-1 with 9 pins to start the season. Turner is also a very solid student. He carries a 3.4 GPA and is currently taking Advanced Placement courses.

Quotes from Mt. Lebanon coach Marc Allemang: "In the room, Turner is a hard worker who wants to achieve his goals of placing in the top 3 at WPIAL's and wrestle in the Giant Center in Hershey, PA for the PIAA tournament in March. Turner has been a part of the Mt. Lebanon wrestling program since he was a little kid and understands the commitment and work ethic required to achieve his goals. Turner is a coachable athlete who wants to get better and show that he can wrestle with anyone in the state. So far this season he has been very reliable and I feel confident every time Turner Gray steps out onto mat."
