The Hangout 101 N Schuyler St.  Lena


The sport of wrestling provides a constant sense of suspense because a match can be won at any time, regardless of the score, if one wrestler PINS their opponent.  The ultimate show of dominance is to physically control and restrain an opponent in order to secure a pin.  The wrestler who earns the most pins, will be the pin champion.  BUT, get after it on the whistle and you may just be the QUICKEST PIN Champion!

Every wrestler is a candidate for the Quickest Pin Champion.  Only scheduled club tournaments are counted toward this award and the age appropriate State tournaments end the season pin counts.  All times need to be verified by a coach or parent.  NOTE:  Matches against teammates DO NOT count toward this award.

Don't think about winning. Think about dominating! - Pierre Pryor

When I go out there, I like to mark out that area of the mat and own it. I want to dominate. I want to humiliate. I want to show that guy and everyone in the gym that I am the best. "Abuse" doesn't sound right, but that's it. - Peter Yozzo, Lehigh University

If you don't invest much of yourself, then defeat doesn't hurt very much and winning isn't very exciting. - Dick Vermeil

Although a pin can come from total domination or even from a last ditch move to salvage a match, the season’s QUICKEST PIN will only happen with an immediate and aggressive attack.  These wrestlers have shown that they understand what it takes to  take control of a match.  These are the QUICKEST PIN CHAMPIONS,
