First, let me say thanks to all the wrestlers who attended this week’s camp. We had kids from all over Texas – DFW, Houston, Lubbock, Austin, Pampa and more – as well as wrestlers from PA, KS, MO and OK. Everyone put in a lot of work, showed improvement and wrestled tough over a long four days.
Thanks also to McKinney Christian Academy wrestling for helping organize and for being part of the camp. Also thanks to Coach Joe Heskett and Coach Joe Young from West Point for taking time out to spend 2 full days with us. And once again, thanks to Coach Surber from Tuttle for bringing the team and helping with the camp – for what I believe is close to the eighth year in a row now.
We spent a tough four days drilling, learning technique, live wrestling and making new friends. As we left today, my one parting thought for everyone is to maintain that critical focus on basics and fundamentals – they are KEY to success. At the camp, we focused on some techniques and new moves that will be helpful to many in both the short term and long term.
However, over the years wrestling styles change, new moves and techniques come and go, but I can’t stress enough that if you want to be great, you have be perfect at the basics and perfect at position – above all else.
We have Junior Dual camp and Junior Duals coming up next week, followed by Fargo in July. So, I’m looking forward to some great wrestling over the coming weeks.
