When my wrestlers got their hands raised, I jumped for joy.
My mind's never gone very far away from what I wanted to accomplish.
I shoot, I score. He shoots, I score.
I've been a fanatic about working out all my life.
I went to college. I had a double major in biology and physical education, but my major was wrestling.

The easiest thing to do in the world is pull the covers up over your head and go back to sleep.
A lot of my intensity in wrestling was due to my mental preparation before the matches. I got myself into a different world.
My valleys are higher than most people's peaks. I stay at that level.
We, as a wrestling community, better remember it is more than one individual that makes a winner.
My coaches were great. My mom and dad. My dad never missed a wrestling meet.
