It is starting to hit me! I am REALLY going to miss Aaron Davis, Jacob Thomas, Leslie Campbell, Levi Hobbs, and Jacob Hefner.
Sure, I will miss the other seniors, but these five wrestlers took our wrestling program to a level of state recognition and respect! All five of these men had started as young freshman willing to do what it takes to succeed and make the wrestling community proud. Well, they accomplished that and MUCH more! They have turned into true leaders and set records that are now our new standards. Often times, I hear that athletes look up to their coaches for leadership and guidance. These five men provided more leadership, guidance and positive examples for others that I am proud to say that I look up to them. God has blessed me to be associated with such loyal student athletes. If you happen to see any of these five wrestlers, PLEASE thank them for their efforts and more importantly for being a good person.
Trivia: The Greenbrier East Wrestling Team has only had four different 4x State Qualifiers before this year. We have added two wrestlers to join that elite group. Can you name them?
Upcoming events and highlights: Our Wrestling Banquet will be on Tuesday, Mar. 27, at 6 p.m. in the WVU Building at the State Fairgrounds. I can guarantee you that there will be a lot of stories, laughs, tears and memories created. I LOVE this team! Congratulations to Jacob Thomas and Jacob Hefner for becoming 2x REGIONAL CHAMPIONS. There have only been three others in the history of Greenbrier East Wrestling. That is BIG-TIME!
