IL YA RL 6.0
plan had been for us to wrestle a block of four from 130-145, but Hatcher
isnít at 145 and Al didnít bulk up to 140 as we planned. With Hatcher
at 140, Digit at 130 and both Al and I at 135, Iím the odd man out.
Thatís because Al is the one Coach is priming for state. I wind up
warming the bench. Itís not like we planned and Iím the only one
losing. But I donít like losing. I have to find a way to get
a chance at the state championship. I didnít work this hard just
to warm the bench my senior year. I know that I have to get past
Al, even if it means losing him as a friend.
