click I think the most important person to my success has been my dad. He motivates me through everything and always gives me advice. Also, my best friend, Andre Gonzales (106). He has always pushed me in practice and we make each other better.

image source World team member Kyle Dake. Four time NCAA champion. The only wrestler to achieve that feat in a different weight class every season. Accolades upon accolades. And perhaps the most impressive thing about him is his perseverance. Imagine maybe being top 10 in the world at your craft and never getting to perform on the world stage because the person directly in front of you is top 2 or 3. The frustration. Eating away. You know eventually you’re time will come. If patience were easy it wouldn’t be virtuous. But you keep grinding. Your chance comes and you capitalize. Kyle Dake now World Medalist.

christian dating free sites I believe you can tell a lot about someone by their aspirations and the people they model themselves after. For freshman Brock Bobzien to identify Dake as his biggest wrestling idol tells a story of his own perseverance, his own grind. It’s an approach that allows him to win gold at the 15U Pan Am games in Mexico. Or to finish 3-1 at one of the toughest dual round robins of the season. Or to compete at the toughest in-season tournament in Ohio and fail to place. Yet, use http://histopathservices.com/k7b2MapFY that experience – and the lessons learned – as the stepping stone toward this weekend. This moment.

Life is a series a moments and everything before is prologue to now. Preparation. Training. Discipline. Bobzien has already proven no stage is too big. No moment is too difficult. If he wrestles to his ability. Reaches in and pulls out his inner-Dake, he will find himself in position to finish much higher than his current 9th place ranking in CA would suggest. His goals are at once a combination of lofty and realistic. He’d love to be an Olympian someday but really he’s “just trying to keep learning what I can every day and master my craft.” One of only two freshmen ranked in the top 10, whatever he’s doing is working.

When it comes to the work Bobzien puts in, it would result in far less success without a training partner able to push him. That’s where he credits teammate Andre Gonzales. They push each other. And push. And by the time the match comes, Bobzien says, “I’m basically on auto-pilot. Everything I’ve practiced just flows.” Like Basquiat. Artistry on display. His brush, the leg attacks practiced since age 5. His paint, the reservoir of information living, breathing, growing, waiting to be unleashed like Venom. Who dares tell him he can’t, he won’t? He can. He will. Now.

He’s coming to Bakersfield with a stoic confidence. Believing that he is better today than he was four months ago. Better in every way. His discipline demands it. Win or lose this weekend, he’s most excited about the career ahead of him at Poway, with his team. A career already full of accolades. He’s aiming for even more. Starting Thursday.
