Joe started his career as a teacher and high school wrestling coach. He coached for ten years and has been involved with community wrestling since then.
When our first son was about two years old, he used to put all of his stuffed animals in a pile and run around them yelling, “two points! two points.”

Wrestling is a lot like life. It’s tough! We all need a lot of practice. Sooner or later we will be out on that mat by ourselves facing challenges and fighting to come out on top. Somethings we must face alone. We all must be prepared to face our opponents or situations and sometimes we must do it by ourselves; One on one against the opposition or problem. However, through the easy or the hard it is good to know there are family or fans cheering us on from the sidelines.
I hope my sons and my daughters will know and understand that no matter what comes in their lives, I will be there cheering them on from the sidelines and enjoying my involvement in their lives.
Oh, and about me. I go to Huntsman for tests this week. Labs, an MRI, and another biopsy. Fun. Wish me Luck and may all my numbers be good.
