In Their Own Words – 2017 Edition

Posted by JohnA Passaro on


I believe wrestling is the greatest sport on earth and the people involved in the sport are some of the greatest people in the world.

I know it has been an invaluable asset in my own life. 

It has taught me how to fight and how to win against my toughest opponent – life.

I love telling stories about this sport and the people involved in it.

It is my passion.

Everyone has a story.

I would like to tell yours.

I am requesting wrestlers, coaches, parents, and fans of the sport to submit their story.

I will help you fine tune it, edit/rewrite it.

I will then post it on my facebook page and on my blog.

It is a great way to memorialize your story and see it in print. 

Here are some tips:

  1. Provide your unique perspective on something about this great sport.
  2. Make it as concise as possible.
  3. Include pictures that capture the story.
  4. Trust your instinct.

I am looking forward to capturing the people and culture of the greatest sport on earth.
