wrestling chatter

i want to apologize for the way i represented 1a this afternoon against Mt. Zion. in a match that i should have completely controlled and finished with a win, i wrestled below my ability and my effort was poor. Being ranked #1 in the state i feel i hold a standard for others and i didnít wrestle to them tonight.

Whether or not you have something to apologize for, I give you all the respect for taking responsibility for what you believe is a performance that did not meet your standards. Yout parents clearly did a wonderful job at teaching you values and I am sure that they are very proud of you. Our world would be much better off if the adults held themselves to higher standards and had a willingness to admit to their mistakes and flaws. I will be looking forward to seeing you at the state championships in Champaign, where I am sure you will make yourself and your family proud.
