How has the sport of wrestling changed/enhanced your life?
The sport of wrestling changed my life by instilling the values of hard work, accountability, and humility. It taught me that you get what you give in life, whether that be on the mat, with family and friends, or in your career. Also, that growth happens when people are not looking and it can often be painful, but it is necessary and rewarding.
Why did you decide to join our Board?
I joined the board because I believe the sport of wrestling teaches invaluable life lessons that can have a lasting impact on our youth.
