Q&A


What was your favorite part of camp and why did you choose to come here?

It was when I thought there was no more energy left in me that the counselors always proved me wrong.

Who is a role model that you look up to and why?

My role model I look up to is my uncle because he has gone so far in his life and I would like to do the same.

What/who is your inspiration to wrestle and why?

My dad would have to be my drive to wrestle because I just love impressing him every day.

What is the most valuable thing you learned at camp?

How far I can push myself.

What's the most important quality that a successful wrestler must have?

I live by two things when I wrestle: never give up, and any given day, anybody can be beat.

To improve as a person I need to…

Always push myself to go further than I think I can.

What was the hardest thing about camp?

The morning runs were hard on my body, not just physically but mentally.

What advice would you give to a future camper?

Go to a counselor if you need help with anything. Keep your head up no matter what, and it is ok to cry.

What makes wrestling different from other sports/activities you participate in?

It’s very hard and selfish because when I win I get all the credit and when I lose I know it was because of me.

Who was your favorite coach at camp and why?

My favorite coach was Brett Pfarr. He always had a good attitude with me and was always there to help me.
