Personal Statement


Why do you want me on your team?  Maybe it can best be expressed with a quote from Frank Popolizio, “You are going to be very good.”
Another quote from Joe Uccelini, “You could go Division 1. You practice and work out like a Division 1 wrestler.”

 

What makes me different from other wrestlers is the fact that I didn’t start out at 6 years old as a wrestler.  I’m the kid who was horrible as a freshman only to fall in love with the sport and make incredible gains in a short time. I was picked up and thrown around on the mat having had a record of 9 and 16. This record did not deter me. Instead, I came back harder and stronger. As a sophomore, my record improved to  37 & 9. I ended up placing 3rd at sectionals and 4th at State Qualifiers. 

 

Then, COVID hit. I didn’t stop. I doubled-down. I started training even harder.  I worked out on a daily basis, even training my friends in the fitness center. We hired a coach to give me suggestions with my diet. I lost 15 pounds, gained more strength,  and started doing zoom workouts with Journeyman Wrestling (Coach Frank Popolizio).  Then, we were given the go ahead to train at his house and eventually his new place in Malta. In the meantime, I had also signed up with Curby Wrestling in Troy, NY (Coach Joe Uccellini).  What a difference! To say “I'm ready to bring it” is an understatement. I'm ready.   

Update, after much discussion and thought, I am only going to Journeyman. I have realized that it was wise to stick with one system and one coach. Until life is normal again, I will continue to work hard at club wrestling, I will focus on my academics, put my time in at the gym, and finish my Eagle Project.  I’m currently starting the freestyle season and looking forward to some competition. Also, this year I qualified for states and just came short of my goal. My goal was to place at states and I was one match away, but lost due to a questionable call. I know this is all part of being an athlete...persistence changes failure into extraordinary achievement. 

Another update, I just placed 4th in Freestyle and Greco at the New York State Championship in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania. I plan to go to Fargo in July to compete. 

Thank you for your time. 

Reed Douglass

  • Notes: In regards to both clubs, Coach Pop and Coach Uccelinni have worked very hard to provide high level training during a pandemic. I appreciate their hard work and help immensely especially since there are very few opportunities like this where I live. Both coaches have taught me moves to counteract other wrestlers moves as well as wrestle offensively. Other wrestlers have commented on how they don't like to get close to me because they know I can throw them. Both coaches take the to time to answer my questions when I want to learn how to counteract other wrestlers moves. They have been very supportive of my growth and desire to learn more. Additionally, they have pushed me hard to be the best. Once again, I only hope that we have a season.
