Via The National Wrestling Coaches Association:

Iowa football coach KIRK FERENTZ talking about wrestling: "As I've said before, I have never been associated with a football player who was a good wrestler that was a bad football player. It didn't mean he was a good football player, but he wasn't a bad football player. In wrestling, you can't point at anybody. It's all about what you do & you earn the results and you live with them. That translates really well into life too. Wrestling is a grueling sport. Totally crazy & excruciating. The only thing worse than doing it is watching a family member do it. It's a tough parent sport, but it is great training for life. That is one of the biggest values of the sport. Like most things that are hard, it's good for you." - Kirk Ferentz, Head Football Coach @ The University of Iowa.

Great Quotes "youthwrestlingdad."

"You can have Results or excuses but not both." -- Coach Kevin Dresser @ Virginia Tech.

"For the athlete, pain & suffering are badges of honor. Athletes pride themselves on their ability to keep going when their body says stop. Every athlete copes with pain in different ways. You have to learn how to deal with pain. If you really push yourself in a workout you quickly realize that you are not going to die from the pain. In fact when I feel pain in a workout I view it as a benefit since I know it's a quality workout. When I feel pain in a race I know I can push through it." --2x world triathlete champion Leanda Cave

"Greatness doesn't care how you feel. Greatness doesn't care that you may be a little tired today, you may be a little sore today. You get your butt up at 7:00am. & you get in that room & you come back at 3:00pm. It's about incredible work ethic. Understand that you have to put the work in. Do it regardless of how you feel." -- Coach Tom Ryan

"The most valuable things in life are not measured in monetary terms. The really important things are not houses & lands, stocks & bonds, automobiles & real estate, but Friendships, Trust, Confidence, Empathy, Mercy, Love, Faith & Compassion." -- Wrestler Kenny Cox

"Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion & growth. To me, the function & duty of a quality human being is the sincere & honest development of one's potential." -- Bruce Lee

"The Key to Wrestling: is to develop positions where you're really good & then finding a lot of different ways to get there." -- Les Gutches

"What's within you is stronger than what's in your way." -- No Barriers

"When you don't get what you want, you don't sit & pout about it. That's true for a takedown in the wrestling room as much as it's true for an NCAA title in March. The second it's over, you take your medicine, you understand you weren't where you wanted to be in the end & you figure out how to correct it." -- Matt McDonough, Iowa

“But it's the wrestler who can put the fatigue out of his mind and break through the 'wall', like a marathon runner after 18 or 20 miles, who will survive. The key to that survival is in hard workouts that develop mental confidence to the point where you won't submit to fatigue and pain descending upon you.”
