Eric is a Senior this year at Minnetonka High School and started wrestling when he was in Kindergarten. This will be his Third year wrestling on the Varsity Team for Minnetonka. What Eric likes most about wrestling is that it's a team sport and our team is really close and supportive of each other, but also stated that it's an individual sport also and you can stand out. For Eric wrestling has personally taught him the value of hard work, toughness and discipline, along with making very close friendships. Favorite memory would be going to state as a team my Sophomore year. Goals for this year, Team Goal : I would like to see the team improve in their record from last year and make it to state. Individual Goal : Make it to the state tournament. Eric plans on attending college next year and majoring in Business. Advice for future Tonka Wrestlers is stick with the sport it really pays off. Future captains: lead in the way that is most comfortable for you, lead in your own personal style.....
I started wrestling in 7th grade, this year will be my 6th, and it has been the best sport I've ever experienced. It has taught me many things, such as eating healthily, hard work, and leadership. However my favorite thing that it has taught me is determination. Wrestling has taught me to never give up, and to keep trying no matter how hard the task at hand. Determination has been the driving force for my education and future. I plan to attend college next year and continue wrestling on the side. This year I hope to help guide the team to winning our section and sending a lot of our guys to state individually, while also having fun doing it. When I leave this team I want the future captains to know that this sport isn't all about winning and doing well, wrestling is also about having fun and making connections. Some of my best memories I've had are from wrestling. My absolute favorite memory was when I was hanging out at the wrestling state tournament with my friends.
New wrestlers should order their Player pack and everyone should consider some Fan gear. Sorry, this order will deliver shortly after Christmas.
