Re: Middle School Wrestling
I agree 100%. Being with your classmates and friends builds bonds that last a long time. Being 100% focused on any sport is not healthy for the vast majority of kids. Wrestle on the middle school team. Play soccer or football. Do track. You have time to do that and train a good portion of the year for wrestling. It doesn't have to be all inclusive.
One kid from the past that I really respect was Bressler about 20 years ago. Not only was he a 2X state wrestling champ, and wrestled in college, but he was also all-state in football AND soccer. I hope I have my facts right as that was along time ago. His wrestling coach let him do all three. His wrestling coach was his dad!
