What I get out of life is not centered on luck but on my preparation. I do not want to look back and think I was lucky. I want to look back at my accomplishments and see what I earned through hard work, dedication, and perseverance. Wrestling is not just a sport for me but a way of life. The lessons I have learned on the mat have impacted my outlook and given me the strength and wisdom to face obstacles and look ahead. I enjoy a challenge both in competition and academics. With a GPA of 3.9 I chose to enroll through my high school in the Early College Alliance (ECA) program at Eastern Michigan University. As I complete my first semester the ECA program has raised the bar academically and shown me the challenges and expectations of college courses. So far during my high school career I have acquired 7 college credits and scored a 4 on the AP U.S. History Exam. Currently, I plan to pursue an education towards a career in Veterinary Pathology. With that goal in mind I anticipate to major in Microbiology and Immunology, or Genetics with a possible minor in Business. I know wrestling is not all about the individual but becoming a part of the family within a team. I have wrestled competitively since I was 6 years old individually, as part of a school, as well as with several travel teams. What I enjoy and appreciate most about wrestling as a team is having a vested interest in the outcome of each match and knowing I own my part. As an elected Varsity Captain this season I take my teammates respect and trust with great pride. What I will bring to your team is inspiration, leadership, and adaptability along with a strong work ethic and eagerness to learn. I have a strong aversion to losing and letting others down so I will work extra hard to achieve my best and uphold my part on your team.
Wrestling On, Reese Fry
