The Hangout 101 N Schuyler St.  Lena

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

Every year, one first year wrestler is recognized as the Rookie of the Year.  All first year wrestlers are eligible for this award.


First year wrestlers do not know many moves or have match experience.  Most of their success comes from shear aggressiveness and athletic ability.  They have to overcome their fear of the unknown and jump completely into the challenging sport of wrestling.


Motivation comes from within each individual. It's a personal thing. It's pride, guts, desire, whatever you want to call it; some people have it in their bellies, and some don't. - Mike Ditka


Sometimes you have to win ugly. - Vinny Testaverde


Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. - Theo. Roosevelt
