KC's Oak Park or another Oak Park?
I wrestled my freshman year but only did it because my friends did.. They quit right before the season and I kept on.
Got my ass handed to me at JV, but in my defense I was wrestling 20lbs heavier than what I was because they needed someone, I was like 2 and 20. I did well during freshman meets in my actual weight class.
I will admit it, I got pinned in 6 seconds during my one varsity meet. I was a fish.
Did not come back the next year after our last tourney. ****ing asshole had a raging hardon, I forfeited that ****ing match.
Probably would have did better the next year if I would have came back, but joined my idiot friends.
LOL, I still use some moves when I get stuck fighting drunks, friends or drunken friends to contain them.
