Champion of Life
Being a Champion of Life is many things to many people. This site is dedicated to the Coaches and Athletes that are not only in it to Win it, BUT to Live it and Be it. What is "IT"?
"It" is a Champion of Life who has taken the opportunity to gain and learn from one's personal experiences.
Wrestling in its basic element is a competition of making choices. If you make bad choices you could end up on your back, if you make a good choices it could be the difference between being a State Champion or a National Champion.
No matter whose hand is raised at the end of the match each wrestler has the opportunity to accept the results as personal experience. The more matches you wrestle the more decisions you have to make and the more decisions you have to make the more exprerience you gain.
It doesn't matter your age, physical abilities or skill level. Every match is a risk and a complex chain-linked pattern of decisions.
These decisions allow you to learn and from learning comes life lessons.
This site is dedicated to the outstanding young men that dedicated themselves to learning life lessons through the sport of wrestling. This site is dedicated to Champions of Life such as:
Ryan Eckdaul, Joe Slaughter, Tim Erkel, A.J.Dombeck, Pete Keding, Andy Strand, Colin and Mike Shaughnessy and many others that have made me a better coach and person.
In true pedagogy of learning, it was not the Coach that taught these young men so much, but it was the Athletes that taught the Coach valuable life lessons which are passed on and on into the future.
This site is dedicated to all those who are striving to be Champions of Life.
