Lacrosse was my favorite.

Used to think I could wrestle until I faced guys who could really wrestle.

Damn, and I thought everyone on here was a QB. I played baseball through HS, DE and O line through HS and played D2 college football.

There's always someone bigger and it's not as much fun in college.

I quit growing when I was in 9th grade. So at 15 I was 6' tall and about 115 pounds. Wrested two years at 126, and never had to cut weight. I was decent wrester for a couple of years, but started getting my *** kicked my junior year..................Some where between 10th, & 11th grade, the guys that were 5'0" and 126 pounds got a whole lot stronger than the 6' tall guys that were 126 pounds.

After a lot of beer 35 years ago, I started fooling around with a buddy who was a D1 wrestler. I outweighed him by at least 50 lbs. He whipped my ***.
Oh yeah. Big time.
I was crushing fat kids because I was lean at 265.
They were gassed in 30 seconds. Easy pin.
Went to states and met unlimited weight kids who could really wrestle.
My coach would tell me what to watch out for and I still couldn't stop it.
One kid pinned me in 20-something seconds.
Wrestling is an art and takes years of hard work to be really good at.

I couldn't wrestle,,, but nobody could pin me. Coach always put me where we were going to get pinned otherwise, And I was one of the leaders to start HS hockey in town. Kind of weird and interesting. All three coaches contacted me through out adulthood. Coach B contacted me before he passed just a few years ago.

In HS I put some size on,
Offered running scholarships in college.
Water ski team/Club Mankato State
Competed in packing contests.
Max pack of 410 lb on one course.
a 210 lb pack placed 2nd-tied :.43 of a mile with elevation and sand, 3:15 seconds

Canoe racing
Oh who said foos-ball! We use to go up to the Twin Cities , we owned the tables all night long:cool: In tournament play I played back. I had a 50% score to shot rate.
