Should I wrestle?

I have never wrestled before and I am going into my sophomore year of High School. The team at my school is great and have won team districts for the past 9 years. I play football and I thought it’d be fun to step outside of my comfort zone and wrestle with some of my friends. What are your favorite things about wrestling? What are some of the things you hate?

    Do something even if it's swim or play basketball. As a teen you have this slice of your life to devote yourself to development, not just academically but also in your sense of confidence, balance, and discipline. You may or may not make any real friends, but whatever you do, do it for yourself. I am a shrimp but am not afraid as an adult. That was the +. The - is that I have major aches and pains from old injuries. I was from the era of starvation and screwed myself over growth-wise and emotionally (well, my family was dysfunctional, too). I'm into Jiu Jitsu now, at age 50, and I'm thankful the young me wrestled. Just don't let others control your life, tell you to starve, shame you for losing, or say you can't do something. Also, it is okay to lose. I used to get depressed over it.

    Wrestling is about balance and position. For a wrestler, that has to be automatic. Good habits have to become second nature.

    If you have the physical condition then go for it. Just remember to first train.
