    You are right Earl Campbell

    The guy you quoted was a 98lb senior and he defiantly did not have a mustache.

      It is nice that someone can find the positive in something that for the rest of us is barely endurable.

        I missed out. My HS years were in the 60's. Didn't start shaving till college. My dad kept laughing at me when I would ask to borrow his razor cause I thought I saw some peach fuzz starting to grow.

          Ran 8 miles down Route 66, while my buddies followed me in their truck drinking Busch eating pizza , jamming Led Zepplin over an intercom speaker. I had icicles on my mustache. They laughed at me the whole way, calling me a crazed lunatic.
          It would be rare to find a kid like that now. But, maybe that's why I became a Special Operations soldier.
          Wow, talk about coincidences. I wrestled both junior and senior years at 98lbs, although I didn't have the stache. Only weighed 95lbs as a junior, and didn't have to cut weight. Then came the growth spurt, jumped to 112lbs and had to put on the long underwear and plastics. The first two years wrestling 118lbs at Augustana College never had to cut weight, and didn't have to cut much my junior year but because I could beat both the starting 126 and 134lbers I was forced to wrestle up a lot. Wrestling made it EASY to adapt to the military life and the ability to self-motivate and drive on through rough conditions. It also helped prepare me to be a Special Operations soldier and handle 24 years in the Army.
