  1. My wife works for the DoD. She’s been putting in 12-14 hours days all week, from home. She’s also made 1200 fabric masks for our local hospital. There is a call for anyone that can sew to get the pattern and start ASAP.
  2. A 2 time champ at HWT is one of the best ever? First, he hasn’t done anything but a 3rd place. Plenty of HWTs won 2 titles that I’d put over him.
  3. Dave Hoffman. Multiple time R12, fought injuries his whole career. Beat multiple AAs throughout his career. Hadn’t wrestled competitively in years then qualified for the OTT in 2008.
  4. So everything I’ve been watching I’ve visualized myself in. Westworld: what if I would have stuck with engineering? Band of Brothers: what if I would have accepted my Naval Academy appointment? Sopranos: what if I didn’t move to VA with my aunt and uncle and stuck around my dad and his made and connected friends? Oz: what if my Uncle Carl hadn’t let me borrow $60K for the settlement for shattering a guy’s eye socket and having his eye ball fall out because he pulled a knife on me? Fury: what if I wasn’t disqualified from the armor division because of my size? Dora: what if I got a monkey? Blue: what if I went to a shelter and adopted them all?
  5. So my first semester I earned a 1.0 GPA, lost my full academic scholarship and started taking out loans. My sole focus was wrestling, lifting weight and playing Counter Strike all night. I upped the GPA to 2.1 after the spring and summer semesters to remain eligible my sophomore year. I stayed around a 2.0 until my third year when I tore my ACL and couldn’t practice anymore. i started going to class, putting in extra work and graduate with a 2.86. Because of my high GRE score, and it being in the department I graduated from I got into a Masters Program where I earned a 4.0 for my degree. This allowed me to pursue and earn my doctorate, graduating with a 3.9 (damn longitudinal data analysis and structural equation modeling). if I could do it over I never would have decided to wrestle in college. Between the injuries, memory loss and depression caused by head injuries and going into education rather than pursuing my passion for architecture (can’t be an athlete and be an architecture student as a freshman at VT) I regret it every day.
  6. If not for a headgear pull, he’d only be a 2x finalist.
  7. The Target pharmacists today told an 80 man to go get Everclear or Moonshine since they were out of rubbing alcohol and hand sanitizer. Grab some before the liquor stores shutdown and have a hygiene party.
  8. This. I’ve applied for about 12 jobs at the local colleges and universities and were told by most they will begin interviews after the restrictions are removed.
  9. David McFadden would have been VTs first 4x AA
  10. I might win the long game though. 2005-2008, went from 245 to 385, never been able to get if off and am 360 for the past few years.
  11. Thinking of more support, when I dropped to 215, from 260 football weight my junior year, my aunt got up every morning at 530AM to cook me my no carb breakfast. She’d fry up bacon, sausage and then make me an omelette, every day before my morning workout. She also bought groceries just for me, lots of meat, cheese, no to low carb stuff. She packed my lunch with lunch meat and a salad with blue cheese dressing, every day. For dinner, no matter what she made for my uncle and her, she always cooked a separate meal for me. Pork chops, steak, Shepard’s pie without the potatoes. With her help, and working out 3 times a day (morning lift or run, practice, evening run/sprints), I dropped 45 lbs in 5 weeks. Now I could cut off my leg and still gain weight....
  12. My aunt and uncle raised me and came to every single event, football, wrestling, track. They would take off on Friday’s and go to tournaments for the weekend to support me. Always brought a cooler full of food for the team to share as well. When it came to cheering though, nothing more than a clap as I stepped on the mat, and a clap when the match was over. We had some wild parents on our team and they did enough yelling for my family to stay silent.
  13. You could do your own auction here where people bid on what they want you to say other than “let’s clear the mats”. ill start $200 for “Epstein didn’t kill himself”
  14. It’ll prove, again, that duals are the only way to do a “team champion”. You can still have both, but no scoring at NCAAs, just all-American status.
  15. He did a good job at UTC, probably makes more money than most HCs.
  16. Yeah I wanted to go to UVA and do pre-law but wasn’t accepted, thus no scholarship money.
  17. Is there a PayPal to send entries to? You can PM me if you’d like.
  18. And I’m glad it did bc they paid for my masters and PhD as well. I don’t regret it.
  19. Full academic scholarship to VT. No debt, easy choice. I don’t come from money, no college savings so it was scholarship or the military.
  20. I’m in! Parris Steveson Cassiopi Hall Hilger Stencel Wood Thomas
  21. Hall is extremely strong. He man handled Jordan who was an ox.
