HERO Wrestling: Top 5 ~ Wrestle Your Way From Opponents to Extended Family

  

When my six-year-old son started wrestling eight years ago, I had no idea what impact it would have on our lives.  It all started out as cute and fun, and has transformed into something that is still fun, but consumes the majority of our nights and weekends!

Over the years... many nights of practice, local Saturday tournaments, and traveling to other tournaments on certain weekends have led to an amazing extended family!  The more wrestling tournaments you attend, the more wrestlers you see.  Of course, there are those wrestlers that are as committed and dedicated as your wrestler, and you see them at all of the tournaments  Your boys may even wrestle each other and you find yourself on the same wrestling mat over and over.

Then, the boys begin to hang out together at the different tournaments, help each other warm up, and then sit in their corners during their matches and cheer them on.  Same club, different club, same weight class... it doesn't matter.  The bonds begin to form, friendships are made, and an extended family is created!

Through the years, hundreds of wrestling tournaments, thousands of hours in the wrestling room or in the gyms, and thousands of miles driven... I can't even begin to count all of the wrestlers and their families that have made a positive impact for us and the sport.  It truly is AMAZING!!

So, with that being said.  One of the wrestlers in our extended family needs your vote!   All you have to do is click on this video and leave a comment... I VOTE for C or C has my vote... anything that shows your vote for C!  Please take a moment to make a difference and vote for Hunter (C)!!  It only takes a few seconds of your time! 

Voting ENDS at 10am PST on Friday, January 16th.

Thank you so much for your support!

See, this is why extra curricular activities are so important. It's not just about the activity itself, but the bonds you form with your teammates and all the people you meet along the way. I think anyone who played team sports in school can attest to that :)
