We got to go see my little brother Mike take 5th at Region in Allen, TX this last weekend. Mike is a senior at Klein Collins High School and has been wrestling for 4 years. When he first went into the wrestling program at KCHS he was a string bean of 160 pounds and was in my shadow as most of the team referred to him has "lil' Jess". Now he is a 189 pound monster with something like a 42-7 record and has much more gruesome nicknames like "The Beast" and "The Killer". There were some exciting moments, tear-jerker moments, anxious moments, solemn moments, and happy moments. Every match was very close. I dare say the entire tournament would have gone a different way if repeated.
I can't believe how far he has come and all that he has accomplished in the sport of wrestling. But most of all I admire his character and love of the sport.
