Wrestling is a sport about hard work and dedication. Some people say that wrestling is the hardest sport in high school because the sport is mostly a mind game. If you let someone get in your head or the workouts get in your head, then you have already lost the fight. Just like in any situation in your life, if you let the situation get the better of you, you lost.
A wrestler has to be in great physical shape because they have to have speed and strength to be successful in the sport. For example if a wrestler was quite big, but was a little chubby he does not have the speed as someone that is the same weight but a little leaner. The wrestler the same weight but leaner has a slight advantage because he has the speed over the other wrestler. Now getting to that physical fitness is the hard part. It takes excessive workouts to get there than a wrestler has to continue the workouts to maintain being fit. Now to the mental aspect of wrestling. It is hard to go out on the mat against a good wrestler and actually take a shot. MAinly because in the back of their head they are thinking I do not have a chance whatever I do this guy will counter. Now getting past that thought process is the tough part. Another time the mental aspect comes in is during practice. While a wrestler wants to stop doing a workout during a practice they have to think to themselves would I be able to do this in a real match and win. The answer is obviously no, during a wrestling match every second counts you do not stop moving during those six

During your match it's all on you but when your results count it's a team sport, just like at tournaments it's a team sport to see who wins the tournament. Wrestling is all about what you're willing to put into it. Whatever I put into it in practice and how hard I'm willing to work will decide how well I do and how much I get better because it's all on you. I like giving lots of effort because it shows how much you're willing to work and how much want it, which makes it that much better. I also like it because of the aggressiveness it involved during the match. I like being aggressive and beating my opponent and having fun doing
The sport forces a wrestler to go out on the mat and put out their best performance and show their strength is madly impressive. Coach Evans once said, "you can't just wait for things to come your way, you have to go and take it." In order for a wrestler to get what they want, they have to put in work and go out and get it. Dedication is a huge factor in wrestling. Throughout the season, wrestlers have to cut down weight for at least four to five months and make their weight class two times a week. Often times, wrestlers will wrestle off-season, to help stay in shape, as well as, improving their
Before Kent State offered DePalma, he got his first exposure to Ian Miller. “I knew (Miller) was good (before Kent State’s camp),” DePalma said. “I came in ready to brawl with him. Then he whooped me the first time wrestling. I didn’t know what to think. I’m like, ‘I can’t believe they’re even recruiting me still.’”
Zanesville would get a 19-yard catch by Andrew Everson and then a 17-yard run by Murphy to give the impression that their offense was ready to turn it on. Then with 2:49 left in the half Everson would get sacked by Marques Sherman for
“Why Kid?” said, my grandfather. I replied, “simple, not everyone can do it, that why I love it. I love the grind, I love the self-torture, and of course the leading reason I look ripped in a singlet. Wrestling is one of the most demanding sports there is. The dedication, hard work, dieting, endless practices, and the everlasting season. Don't forget sectionals, then finally state. I can't tell you how many parties that I had to turn down during the season because I didn't want to be tempted to binge eat. The countless Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner I've had to give up. I felt like a dog watching everyone eat their honey roasted turkey.
Performance Assessment High School sports are a big part in the high school experience. Many kids participate in high school sports each year. Some kids do many more sports than others and kids get injured during them. Playing a sport in high school is difficult because you have to worry about school work and family & friends. Also, many people do not make some of the sports team they will try out for and be embarrassed of themselves. Schools should not continue to fund sports because of school work, injuries, and embarrassment.
Have you ever fully read a release form, or waiver, or other equally long winded legal document? I’ve made a habit of trying to read each and every document, where I have to “check the box to agree to terms,” or sign to show my understanding, because I like to know exactly what I am agreeing to, as well as what they are expecting me to do with a product or activity. The document that sticks with me most clearly is the sports release form, that every student who participated in P.E., or sports had to complete and turn in. The waiver had the normal legalese, that were made with the intention of protecting the school from undue lawsuits, but the part that sticks with me the most is the descriptions of the possible injuries that might be sustained,

The Ugly Truth of High School Sports Catastrophic injury is devastating not only to the injured athlete, but also to the athlete’s family, school and community.

Playing high school sports come with serious consequences and life altering changes such as physical injuries, peer pressure and psychology effects.
Students, Brian Harpin and Brent Nelson at Kankakee Kays High School [Illinois], enjoy playing soccer for the their high school team. They like being part of a team and feel they do not need to be the best players. "You have to play the game, give it your best shot, and not give up," says Nelson. Some of Nelson’s teammates let the competition acquire the best of them. "Sometimes when they missed the ball, they took out their anger on other people," he says. Other teammates told them to just play the game and have fun. All students must play competitive sports in school to make sure that they do not become obese, and so they can stay in shape.
