Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is an option. At some points in my life I’ve hated the sport of wrestling. At other I’ve never loved anything more. All in all, wrestling has taught me a lot about myself. When i placed at the state tournament, I learned that no matter where someone comes from they can do big things, if they have the right mindset and the determination.

Thats makes you feel like you went far enough to please other people. You can’t be complacent in the sport of wrestling because that 's where things go wrong. What i’m saying is that the week leading up to semi-state has to be very focused. Freshman of any sport is very hard because it 's your first year of “high school athletics.” You have to learn how to go hard in practice. My freshman year of wrestling was alright and what I mean by that is that it wasn 't the best.

In 2013 I joined the varsity wrestling team. I had never wrestled, and I was not not physically fit, but I wanted to try something new and challenging. I learned the basics of wrestling and competed within two weeks of my first training. I was inexperience and there were many things I did not know, but I worked hard to defeat my opponents and become fit and agile. By the end of the season I wrestled my way into the regional competitions.
In Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe, he clearly reveals to us that, although age was respected in Igbo culture, so were achievements. At a young age of 18, Okonkwo defeated Amalinze who at the time was the greatest wrestler in the nine villages and beyond. Amalinze was unbeaten for seven years, and defeating him meant honor for your village. Achebe deeply stimulates fear and toughness as “whenever [Okonkwo] was angry and could not get his words out quickly enough, he would use his fists” (4). Okonkwo was tough and fierce, which led to him obtaining two titles, as well as showing incredible bravery in two inter-tribal wars.
Walking down through the tunnel of the Hershey Arena has been one of my most decorated moments in my high school career. Last March I had the amazing opportunity of reaching the State Tournament for wrestling. Not only was it the first time I have reached the state tournament, but also Scranton Prep’s first wrestler. Walking through the tunnel and hearing the loud roar of the stadium as they announced my match, something that is so unbelievably unexplainable left me with a stomach full of butterflies, and a mind left empty. Unable to gather thoughts, I went out and wrestled the soon to be state runner up.
I had lost a match I was certain I was going to win. A match others were certain I was going to win. The loss wasn’t even due to what my opponent did, instead, it was due to my actions alone. It hit me hard and the next few days were spent in depression, but then the realization that feeling sorry for myself helped in no way. So instead I got back on the mats the next day.
I had to get my mind right that whole weekend because I knew it was going to be a big game for me. I just have to go out there and “Ball out.” People doubted me and said I couldn 't guard number 3 so I watch pros and trained myself because I knew he was a good receiver. When people doubt me I get mad and try my best to prove them wrong. At the end of the game we came through and won. One of the best games I 've ever had in my life.
They had a very selfish player that had almost half of their points. So we figured if we just lock him up when knew we were gonna win. He scored about 5 more points to start the 3nd half so by that time i just started guarding him. I knew he was weak minded and just wanted to shoot over me so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt.
Snaider Family Scholarship Being an Athlete there can be many times where you could find yourself in a difficult situation. Over time you learn how to handle the pressure and are better able to cope with it even though it is still a difficult and stressful situation.

That year was a great year for our team we were the champions of our conference and had made it all the way to the State Championship for 1A schools. We had already won a game and lost a game to our opponents and this was the final game.
“Coach Al Sears was the best coach and I was sad to see him leave. He pushed all the wrestlers to their limits and then some. He truly was the best and hopefully Coach Joe can meet his expectations or better yet even surpass him as a wrestling coach.” Jamie said. A four-time All-American wrestler in the heavyweight division at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and highly successful wrestling coach at Belleville West for the past 14 years, Sears has been elected as part of the 2015 class into the Illinois Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association Hall of Fame. Coach Sears had well deserved this place in the hall of fame as he lead the Belleville west wrestlers to countless victories and even gotten wrestlers scholarships to multiple universities or colleges.
