Wrestling is huge in the Midwest, most of the OL’s/DL’s from the midwestern regions usually also wrestle in HS as well.This is a good tip across multiple positions, too. Give me OL who play basketball and/or kill it in the field events. TEs who hoop, too. Plus QBs who also play baseball. And LBs who wrestle.
I’m big proponent of it, I encourage every HS football player I ever interact with that if their school has a wrestling team to join it immediately. Because aside from the hand fighting techniques & learning to engage/disengage with an opponent, you also learn a sh*t ton about personal development, perseverance, resiliency & hard work. Wrestling is hard it basically sucks, having to cut weight & do all that damn running lol but it really builds character & teaches you how to not quit on yourself & overcome fatigue both mentally & physically.
