...Nobody Can Hold Me Down.
My wife doesn't like it as much as I do, but there is just something about wrestling that excites me. No, I'm not talking about that fake stuff called the WWE, I'm talking about real wrestling, on a mat, with takedowns, escapes, reversals, cradles, back points, and pins.
I wrestled when I was younger, so perhaps that is one of the reasons I still like it to this day. The strength, agility, and power that wrestlers possess is amazing. The quickness and flexibility rival that of any other athlete. The endurance that it takes to go for a match is also superb. Wrestlers are such well rounded athletes.
Fort Osage has had a very good wrestling program since I've been here. They continually send wrestlers to state, and are always in the conference title hunt. I was able to photograph their match on December 5th vs. Lee's Summit West. While we didn't win the dual, we won most of the individual matches. We had several opens due to injury, and just not having the numbers to fill weight classes. The boys that did wrestle did amazing, and here are some of the images I captured.
