General Wrestling Photo's - Over the years we have been involved
with wrestling. These photo's are of tournaments, team mates,
camps, and others. Come in and enjoy these great photos.
Wrestling Photographs: Most of these photographs are of Nathan
and his Derby Kansas Team Mates. This was a great year for the team
as you can see from some of the photographs on the link. I
challenged the team that if they took 20 wrestlers to state, which
would be a record, then I would let them shave my head. Well some
26 wrestlers later I have a new hair cut (or lack thereof) style.
It was also a great year for Nathan who finished the Folk-Style /
Collegiate Season Ranked #2 in the World for the Cliff Keen All-Star
Team. This was tough because he went into the Reno World
Championships leading by 3 points. We decided to have him wrestle
up a weight class to see how tough it was, we also didnít want to
cut those 5 pounds at the end of the season. Well, he wrestled in
the championships against a really tough kid from Illinois named
Jonathan Morrison. He wrestled him by far the toughest of any kid
before loosing on a close takedown 3-1. Nathan then tore some
ligaments in his hand in the challenge match in the first period
before loosing again 3-1 to a good friend and tough wrestler Zeke
Hofer to finish the World Championships at third place. Nathan lost
the Cliff Keen All Star Award by 1 point to Jeremy Goree. I frankly
think that both boys should have won the award but that is not my
decision. I am grateful to the World of Wrestling, Jack Roller and
all of the people associated with this classy organization. They
definitely put on the best tournaments in the country in conjunction
with Cliff Keen Athletic. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and if you
have others to be listed for this season feel free to email them to
me along with information and Iíll be glad to have them posted.
