It sums up our program so perfectly. There’s a lot to think about here, but, for us, it all starts with what’s written in the top right corner.
The “and” is what sets us apart, gives our program an identity and makes it so special.
I truly believe it’s that one three-letter word that describes why so many of our wrestlers go on to achieve great things, and why we have such an amazingly supportive and involved family of supporters, parents and alumni.
For the kids, those expectations revolve around huge commitments to themselves and each other, and working their butts off day-in and day-out to become the best they can be on the mats and off.
We expect them to ultimately excel on the mat as a product of the effort and time they put in, and we expect them to excel in the classroom, in their relationships and in their other responsibilities, again, because of the time and effort they commit.
- Why can’t we be the best wrestling program in New York State and also the single best platform to prepare kids for whatever life might throw at them?
- Why can’t we care deeply about building State Champions and also care deeply about building great people?
