WHY WRESTLE?

Wrestling prepares a person to fight the game of life. The wrestler is the one athlete that must meet his opponent and do battle completely on his own; no one
can substitute: no time outs are possible. He has no one to check, screen, block, or assist him in any way; there is no one to blame for his mistakes. When he wins, he must show quiet pride and modesty. When he loses, the responsibility is his.

Wrestling is a true sport. In other sports, when contact is made, they blow the whistle to stop the action; in wrestling, when contact is made, we're just getting started. No other sport requires more sacrifice than wrestling.
The individual, through self-denial, offers more of his character than could ever be explained here. It is something he carries with him throughout life, and through every trial, test, and tribulation.
