Reversal: a movie that is a father/son love story about
wrestling, growing up, and letting go.
Youth Wrestling Program
This is a youth wrestling club in the Kansas City area. I really
appreciate the web site for a couple of reasons, one they are
working with inner city kids giving them opportunities not often
made available and secondly because of the quality of the web site.
It is the only youth wrestling web site that I know of that has
video links to watch technique and moves. If you wrestle you will
want to visit this site.
The first and still the best listing for all levels of wrestling in
the state of Oklahoma including kids wrestling.
sight that has information regarding wrestling in the state of
Kansas. A great topical forum for discussion as well. I frequently
visit this web site and the Oklahoma web site forum and discussion
Keep up with Wrestling in the Show Me State.
This sight is the newest site in Oklahoma for wrestling and
specifically targets wrestling for USA Wrestling and the
Freestyle / Greco Roman Teams. There is also a forum on this
page where the reader can find out what is going on in these
styles of wrestling
This site has some of the best information related to wrestling
there is. An excellent web site.
Cross - I got to talk to Kendall after watching the movie
Reversal together. He is a neat guy and a friend of mine Jimmi
Petula the maker of the movie Reversal speaks highly of him. He is
an Olympic Gold Medal Winner that I think highly of. Check out his
Nathan and I had the opportunity to meet
Brandon the year that Jack Roller included Nathan's testimony in the
Programs for all of his tournaments. He is a believer and a really
nice guy. He came running up to us as we were leaving the Tulsa
Nationals telling us that he appreciated Nathan's story and that he
hoped we would keep in touch. One of these days I hope to host a
clinic or camp for underprivileged kids with an emphasis on not just
wrestling but also on their relationship with Christ. If I ever get
to do this Brandon is one of the guys I would love to have present.
Another link associated with Brandon Slay but specifically related
to his faith and the sharing of his faith
The Matrix Wrestling Club
This is a great site that has all kinds of wonderful material
related to faith and wrestling. I would strongly encourage anyone
with questions, especially wrestlers to check out this particular
link. Kudoos to the Matrix Wrestling Club for putting this together.
Pro Wrestling & Faith
Don't get me wrong I know that pro wrestling is sports entertainment
and not real wrestling. While some have come from the wrestling
ranks to become a part of this sports entertainment business it is
far from the reality that those of us involved with amateur
wrestling know. There are Christians in this field though and some
of them might surprise you. Check out this link to this interesting
story regarding some of the popular wrestlers in pro wrestling and
Messiah College is one of the few Christian Colleges that offers
What is this man really like? What is it that drives him? Again it
may be sports entertainment but it is also a man who has promoted
our sport. Discover truths about him that you didn't know existed.
Strong and Courageous Wrestling Club
Norm Osteen is the coach of this fine,
fine wrestling club. I used to coach soccer at North Henderson
High School and Norm had to drive the team bus until I received my
CDL Drivers license. Norm coached this wrestling club as well as
worked with the North Henderson and Apple Valley School Wrestling
Programs. I remember them telling me I needed to get Nathan
involved in wrestling and especially so after they found out I was
moving to Oklahoma. If all truth be known he and this club are
responsible for us making the decision to try wrestling and we are
glad we did. Norm has produced as of 2003 26 National Champions
and over 136 All Americans. Not bad for a coach in the little town
of Hendersonville North Carolina. The whole basis of his club is
that there be an emphasis on Jesus Christ.
I knew James Short, one of the first wrestlers if not the first
wrestler with this club to win a national championship. I am glad
to say that I was a part of the prayer process when James broke
his neck playing football and it looked like he would never
wrestle again. Through God's tremendous ability James ended up
getting well, wrestled again to win the North Carolina State
Championship and go on to win additional National Championships.
It is a honor to know that this web site exists and that others
can now learn of the success of this wonderful wrestling club.
Take it to the Next Level
This is a wonderful organization that has their priorities in the
right place. Check out this site for information not just on
training the body but regarding training the spirit and soul. This
would be one of the first sites that I would recommend to athletes
of all sports. I double dog triple dare you to click on here and not
find something of value if you are an athlete.
