My husband was an amazing wrestler in high school (and really should've gone to college and wrestled as well!), and my son is now following in his footsteps. Ivan has a photo album full of newspaper articles from where he was in the papers during high school for his wrestling. He also has a ton of medals on his letterman jacket and trophies (which my son has up in his room).
I didn't have any pictures on the computer of him though, so I googled his name and found this on the Virginia Wrestling Association's page, showing that Ivan had over 100 wins during his high school wrestling career.
Hunter has really had a great time with wrestling so far! I love it when he comes home from practice every week and is just SO excited to tell me all about the new moves he learned! Ivan is also helping coach his team and is also loving it! He's like a little kid again! lol!
A few of Hunter's matches so far
Hunter's coach invited us to go to UVA to watch their wrestling team in their last home meet of the season last night against UNC. They won 21 -9. Their 20th straight home win! Hunter had a great time getting to watch the college boys wrestling. I enjoyed listening to him point out the moves he saw them doing that he knew!
Hunter's coach knew a lot of the UVA wrestlers and after the matches were over, Hunter got to meet them and get their autographs! He was so excited!
Hunter is a Va Teach fan (not sure how that happened in our house full of UVA fans), but after last night, he said that UVA wrestlers are his favorite and he wants to go to college and wrestle there too! Yay! Success! Ha! Now, I'm going to need you to get a scholarship there, okay, Hunter? LOL! :)
