Haven’t posted in awhile. I have been really busy with school. Wrestling sectionals was on Saturday. I won my first match and lost the second one. The third match I lasted all 3 periods with they guy and didn’t get pinned! So this is how the first match went down. We started the match. The ref blew the whistle and I could feel the tension radiating from him. He locked up with me and we did that for a solid 15-30 seconds. then I took my first shot. It was a success! I put the double leg in on him. I lifted him up on my shoulders and I took him on the mat. The thud was so big that i think i knocked the wind out of him. I got my two points and the period ended. 2nd period is a go. I chose bottom. He got me on my stomach and put the half nelson in on me. I was on my back and was forcing my whole body off of the mat. I was on my one shoulder for 30 seconds I think. I was thinking to myself “this is not over yet! This is over when my body can’t do anymore! THIS IS NOT OVER!!!” I suddenly felt this empowering strength consume me. I got my palm on the guys thigh and pushed. He felt like a feather. So I literally lifted the guy up from my back and flipped him on his back. Then i grabbed a hold of his neck and took his arm and got a headlock in. I squeezed so hard, that if I did it anymore the pressure would be to much for his neck to handle. But I ended up with MY FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON!!!!!!! (not including forfeits). I also beat a kid on my team at a tournament. We had to wrestle and I beat him. But anyways, after the match my coach told me “Finally Gabe, You’ve Waited All Season For This Moment!!!” He was so happy. He hugged me. I felt great! So the first round was single elimination. So i got out of the first round and was not eliminated! I eliminated the guy I faced!!! My second match I got pinned but it wasn’t easy for my opponent to do. My third match I lasted all 3 periods with the guy. I was almost getting pinned 3 times. But I didn’t give up. After my matches and I had been eliminated my head Coach told me “He Never Saw An Ounce Of Quit In Me Today”. I felt great even though I was eliminated I thought I did great that day. I’m in school right now:( and the bell to switch periods is about to go off so I gotta go. And by the way I recently Leg Pressed 600 lbs!!! So happy!

1st post

My family went to West Point this weekend. It was pretty fun. We had to go because my brother had a gymnastic meet there. He did great. Now I am nowhere near being a gymnastic fan but he’s my brother and I gotta support him. The hotel we stayed at was The Thayer Hotel on campus. Its was ok, but I was expecting a little more. The food wasn’t to good at least thats what I heard. But then again I’ll eat anything. Well this is my first attempt at a blog. So no haters. Well heres a little about me. I wrestle for high school. I’ve been wrestling for 5 years. This wrestling season I lost 20 pounds!!! But as much as I love wrestling I love baseball too! They are both my favorite sports. I listen to metal music and a little hard rock. My parents don’t like it but then again I do got a choice… Right? Ha. My name is Gabe. I’m 15 years old. And I have A.D.H.D. So it can be tough for me at times. I have 2 cats. And I recently had 2 dogs but the one dog just passed away. I miss him but you can’t be afraid to die. And I guarantee you he wasn’t afraid to die. Off to a better subject who do you want to win the SuperBowl? I want the 49s to win. My favorite football team is the Patriots. But they got knocked out by the Ravens, hence my decision on who I want to win the SuperBowl. My favorite baseball team is the Yankees. Well thats it for today. Ill see if I can write another blog tomorrow.
