If you’re going to stay in the Olympics, you’ve got to be entertaining and get sponsorship.
I’ve never changed my life since I was 4 and went to the YMCA with a gym bag. I still have that philosophy. In fact, I still have that gym bag.
I’ve been a fanatic about working out all my life.
Freedom across the world is a result of many individuals working together.
My mind’s never gone very far away from what I wanted to accomplish.
I went to college. I had a double major in biology and physical education, but my major was wrestling.
I never won anything by myself. I was always strong because of help that gave me extra strength to win.
Wrestlers are a little more dedicated than, and are different from, the other people, which may be strange.
Right out of high school I never had the fear of getting beat, which is how most people lose.
We, as a wrestling community, better remember it is more than one individual that makes a winner.
I don’t think college wrestling is in danger of extinction by any means. But I am concerned if one program drops.
My coaches were great. My mom and dad. My dad never missed a wrestling meet.
My wrestling and family go together. It’s always been that way, from day one with my mom and dad, my sister, my wife, four daughters, grandsons, son-in-laws.
I shoot, I score. He shoots, I score.
A lot of my intensity in wrestling was due to my mental preparation before the matches. I got myself into a different world.
