Wrestling Site for Wrestling Videos, Pictures and Links
As a parent of an Oakton High School (OHS) wrestler, I love going to the meets with my camera, taking videos and pictures of not only my son Albert but of the rest of the team. There is a small password protected area for the Oakton High School video and picture archives. These are not just for memories and entertainment, but for the use by our wrestlers for technique improvement.
In this site I also present general videos of wrestling, from NCAA highlights to wrestling moves which should benefit wrestlers everywhere.
Here is part of a letter written by a father to his son about the sport which puts all of our efforts into perspective:
"Wrestling isn’t about winning. It is about the desire to win. It isn’t about success, but rather the determination to succeed. I want you to succeed as a wrestler, not to win state championships, but I want you to be a successful wrestler so you learn to be all that you can. This sport can help teach you that, if you let it. I look forward to the seasons of our future as you go through these lessons and I’ll be in your corner for each and every one of them. I love you."
If you have any ideas to improve this site, or if any of the students wish to take over the eventual authorship of the site after Albert graduates, please let me know. Wrestling is a great sport, and I look forward to our wrestlers having a great 2011/2012 year! Al Borges
