A very different role yesterday with my new team and a new appreciation for the growing PA women's wrestling scene. I saw tough young female athletes that showed technique, scrambles, and an awareness of freestyle. I saw myself in the moves I struggle with and saw how the wins and losses change the motivation in different athletes.
Keep working hard young ladies and put in the work. Thank you @etomeo14 & @wyomingseminary for this different perspective and opportunity.
Thank you to all the little girls and their parents that had my #agaggressor on yesterday! @asics#asics S/O to Kyle for coming to say hi to my team and me on the long wrestling day. Good luck in your next event buddy, you are looking strong.

I am having a thankful Thursday today! I just found more than a handful of notes my mom has written to athletes, coaches, and parents to help ease concerns with their daughters wrestling. She used her experience with me to reach out with a heart full of hope that her words would help grow the sport.
So thankful for my mom going above and beyond when people reached out and I didn't have time to get to it or I didn't know what to say. She guides me in my moral compass as I embrace this area of role model for wrestlers.
Are you someone that wants to support a young female wrestler?
Thank you for being proactive and for wanting to support women in sport. Usaw is a great resource. They have a list of clubs that must allow women and it can help direct them to stick with the sport.
Tell them to follow some of our current and past national team members on social media. Make sure they know this sport is real, it can take them far and teach them more about their strength than a lifetime of work.
