University of the week! DeVry University!


DeVry University is a great college to attend whether you are doing sports or not though they do have a decent wrestling team. This is definitely a great choice for an average wrestler and for any other sport for that matter. College wrestling anywhere is tough even at Devry University, and where every you wrestle, you will have to work hard day and night to achieve greatness.

College Wrestling

College wrestling, is probably one of the hardest things you will ever do in life. It takes extreme dedication to have a chance at being successful. For some is takes till their sophomore or junior year just to make varsity unless you are stud. College wrestling is no joke, and not everyone can do it. I'm Anthony Sandi and my goal is to be a college wrestler at Ithaca College, and a successful one at that. I know this wont be easy, but I will never give up no matter what.

Pinning is the BEST feeling!


Pinning is the BEST feeling!

Look at the struggle on his face!

Wrestling Is Not For Everyone

Wrestling is as sport that a person either loves or hates and is the most difficult sport anyone will ever do. Not many people can handle the such intense conditions for a whole season. Wrestling takes physical and mental strength which without a person can not last. I am a wrestle and wrestling is my life. My goal is to make my mark my seniors year by becoming a state champ.

I started wrestling my freshman year of highschool and it was the hardest thing i had ever done, but something about it just made me want to come back everyday. I never missed practice and always wanted to get better. Though only JV my freshman year I went 9-1, then my sophomore year I went varsity ending with a horrible 2-9 record. This year I made a huge improvement. I ended my junior year with a 22-8 record. I am very proud of myself but I am no where near being satisfied. I will achieve the title of State Champ no matter what it takes.

Wrestling is an amazing sport that not only prepares you physically but mentally to face the battle life has to throw at you.

Wrestling is a form of combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds. A wrestling bout is a physical competition, between two (occasionally more) competitors or sparring partners, who attempt to gain and maintain asuperior position. There are a wide range of styles with varying rules with both traditional historic and modern styles. Wrestling techniques have been incorporated into other martial arts as well as military hand-to-hand combat systems.

Wrestling is probably one of the toughest sports there is not only physically but mentally. You need to dedicate yourself harder than you can imagine if you want to become successful in this sport. You have to have the heart to continuously push your self even when you think you can't. Success doesn't come easy.

“Raising your level of performance requires a proper mentality and meaning from within. This gives you the ability and drive to work on the things necessary to go to a higher level. When people ask me how to raise their level of performance, the first thing I ask is, How important is it to you?” Dan Gable

Wrestling Dedication

Wrestling Dedication!

My name is Anthony Sandi and I started wrestling when I was in 9th grade. Though I wish I started much earlier than that I still loved the sport. I worked hard but I was on JV that year. Not quite what I wanted but i kept working harder and I did not quit. The next year I made varsity after pinning in my wrestle offs for 152. That season went horribly! I ended with a 2-9 record. I was so discouraged but realized there was so much I could of done to be better this year. So the following summer I wrestle about 4 times a week at a local club, I ran every other day and I lifted. I thought I did well and it payed off in my Junior year of wrestling. I ended with a 22-8 record, but I went no where in districts so I wasn't happy for long. I worked even harder, running everyday, lifting everyday, and wrestling as often as possible. The BIGGEST thing I did though was wrestle in summer tournaments. I wrestled as many matches as I could get! I ended my summer record at 18-8. Not quite the amount of matches I wanted but still pretty decent. Now I am in my senior year and I am ready to have a great season where hopefully all my hard work wil pay off! So just remember to never give up or let someone tell you can't do something because you can do anything you put your mind to!

How Can Wrestling Effect Your Work Life In The Future?

Wrestles make the best employees!

“More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill—none have wrestled without pride.” ~ Dan Gable

Today’s workforce is extremely competitive. When comparing resumes it’s easy to get lost in all the bullet points of software literacy and past responsibilities. If you really want to separate two seemingly qualified employees, bring them in for an interview and ask a simple question, “Have you ever participated in sports at an elite level?”
“Current research indicates that individuals who have competed in elite level athletics, i.e., collegiate, international, or professional level competition possess higher levels of emotional intelligence than their non-athlete counterparts,” says Richard Mendelson, I.O. psychologist and founder of Dynamic IO Consultants, a consulting firm specializing in human capital management and other services.
In 1996, Dr. William Brad McGonagle, associate vice president for administration at Texas A&M University wrote his dissertation studying how former athletes transfer the skill set they developed through athletics to the workplace. He found that an employee with prior athletic experience was able to transfer the lessons of being a team player and also noticed strengths in accomplishment-based skills, discipline, and communication.
In 2002, professors Daniel Gould and Kristen Dieffenbach published a study in the Journal of Applied Sport Psychology which noted that Olympic champions display higher levels of specific attributes directly linked to success, in particular emotional intelligence. Their research showed that these elite athletes displayed high levels of stress management, interpersonal skills, and self regard.
The conclusion of all this research could be seen during the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany, when American wrestler, Dan Gable, won the gold medal without giving up a single point! This is perhaps one of the greatest Olympic performances of all time. And while this level of performance would be hard to duplicate on any stage, can you imagine this same type of focus and determination on display in your office?
While I acknowledge that nearly all athletes at an elite level have a tremendous amount of drive, wrestlers in particular seem to operate at a higher level of fortitude. Not that my athletic history is anything to write about, but I wrestled in college and have been surrounded by amazing athletes of all sports. I’ve known Olympians, world champions, college champions and everything in between. The one constant observation is that wrestlers have a capacity to push themselves harder than most and display an unrivaled mental toughness—that and a deep desire to eat.
Socrates once said, “I swear it upon Zeus an outstanding runner cannot be the equal of an average wrestler.”
Wise words considering being fleet of foot is how a wrestler starts his day. In the business arena, being fast or strong doesn’t necessarily rank as a top priority in our service economy. So why should you care?
“Wrestling, in particular, is thought to require more individual commitment than most other sports due to the nature of the training and competing itself. The logical inference, then, is that with other sports, an athlete can go to practice or a game, and then go home to relax. Wrestlers, due to the weight class requirements, have to maintain their focus and drive around the clock for years at a time,” says Mendelson, a former college wrestler.

“In addition, wrestling is an individual sport and the athlete experiences both failure and success as an individual. As a result, the wrestler endures more physical, emotional, and psychological stress, both positive and negative, than an athlete in another sport.”
I can tell you that the biggest lesson I learned during my wrestling career was humility. Even the great Dan Gable lost a match. Over the years I learned that getting knocked down was just part of the process to work even harder and to improve. I now encourage the success of others because I enjoy the challenge of meeting those higher expectations. Even during the all-night programming sessions to launch new features on Hitched, it has never felt difficult since I know 100 of those nights will never be as hard as a single wrestling practice.
The competitive spirit in other athletes might argue that they too exude these same qualities at the same level. They might be right, which is why the question you should pose during an interview is asking about their entire athletic background. Saying that, when the bullet points begin to once again merge as you stare down two athletes, I recommend you go with the wrestler.
“Once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy.” ~ Dan Gable
