Favorite Quote:
Isaiah 40:31
Those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength, they will run and not be faint, walk and not be weary.


The season has come
back once more.
As the trees shake from a winter's nap.
We turn to the mats.
We turn to the weights.
We turn to a run.
Wrestling.
Not for the weak.
Not for the faint.
It requires a beast.
Outside. Inside. Within.
A beast that will destroy.
A beast that is trained.
A beast that is contained.
On the mat.
Off the mat.
One more rep.
One more mile.
Give in now,
or push thorough?
Choose.
Victory?
Defeat?
Your team.
The team.
A family.
A brotherhood.
You cheat the mile.
You cheat yourself.
You cheat that rep.
You cheat your team.
You cheat the beast within.
Suffer now.
Win later.
Champions.
Because of the beast.
Because you did not give in.
Now you are here.
The pinnacle.
State.
National Championship.
Olympic Tryouts.
It’s time to wrestle.
Unleash the beast.
