Default I'm a proud Poppa....My son just qualified for States in Wrestling.

My boy won a grand total of 1 match last year.....but each week he wanted to wrestle the next tournament coming up.....he was 5 years old.

This year, he set a goal at the beginning of the year to qualify for States....on the inside I thought it was going to be damn near impossible but I would support him the best I could.

He worked hard in practice and never wrestled a tournament this year that he didn't place in (never got first but got a handful of 2nd's and 3rd's) as the year progressed he started to become less aggressive and I thought he may be burned out.....

Well today we went to Grand Blanc High school to wrestle in the central region tournament to try and qualify for states....there were 14 kids on his chart, and he wrestled 6 matches going 4-2 on the day, he took 4th and will be making the trip to states!

So far this year he has a record of 13-5, I couldn't be more proud of his hard work and dedication, he has only been pinned 2 times, and lost the other 3 times by decision. For a 6 year old kid he has shown me tremendous dedication adn work ethic, and as a dad I couldn't be prouder of the improvement he has made since last year and the accomplishments he has made this year.

Now I have to take him to buffalo wild wings to celebrate, cause thats what he wanted!


/end parental boasting....

Landon is a few years older and a few pounds heavier.

Ben is Xander's practice partner and pulled out a 2nd or 3rd place seed int he same weight class today....triola's are great people, I don't know the lapa's as well.

the marty delivered most of the kids in Fenton, including my oldest boy. he also was one of jake's little league coaches a few years ago back before we moved on to travel ball. the lapa's are good people.

I think the culvers moved upward an onward - seems like kelly is always taking the kids to another state for some major tournament. xander would definitely be in between their 3 kids.
