Wrestling wrap-up

CV’s Carson Graham, bottom, puts the squeeze on Shadle Park’s Coby Johnson at 106 pounds.Jesse Tinsely, SR

Jesse writes, “Photographing wrestling matches take me back to when I was an easy pin for any opponent in high school. The wrestling mat is the loneliest place on earth when you're losing.”

Wrestling pics bring back unpleasant memories for me, too. Out of four sons, only our firstborn tried wrestling. That's how I learned I wasn't cut out to be a wrestling mom.  Turns out the refs don't like it when you scream “Get off my kid you moron!” Who knew?

Did you or any of your kids wrestle?
