Turn the Caps Lock button off

It looks like Big A has shrunk a little…

He’s now medium A…

or perhaps even small a…

He ended his high school wrestling career with a flourish, losing in the state finals to one of the top 10 wrestlers in the nation.

This weekend, he wrestled his first two matches in college…

and lost!

The first match was close. He lost to a 3 time NY state champ by a score of 4-2. And “little a” had a takedown but was ruled out of bounds.

He lost his second match by a score of 6-0.

I talked with him on the phone and I have to tell you that I like his attitude!

He wasn’t discouraged and he wasn’t closing his eyes to the obvious. He knows exactly what he needs to improve on and still thinks that he is on schedule to compete for a starting position next year as a red-shirt freshman. It reminds me of how he was in high school. He could see the progress that he WOULD make before anyone else could and then he went out and did it!

I think this is going to be fun watching this letter grow!
