See that kid in orange, the one poised to pounce and take that other kid down with his quick powerful wrestling moves? That's my son Jack. Doesn't he look strong?
And look at him here, taking down a grown man. I think he's even placed one of those black out choke holds on him. That takes some real control and strength to administer to a man that size.
And this shot, well there are no words. Most kids Jack's size could never throw down a kid that big. Really, Jack is only allowed to wrestle the men and much older "varsity team" kids, you know the ones who wear the spandex unitard. Jack has been blessed with God like speed and strength.
He's good huh? I know, you can tell your friends about him if you want. He's a Battlin' Badger now. That's his team name. Ok the truth, twice a week he transforms into a little Badger and hits the mat for practice. He laughs, sometimes cries, and mostly gets wrestled down to the mat. He's the newbie in class and I may be biased but I see real potential here. He'll be in one of those spandex unitards in no time.
