The Team left Tuesday morning very early and got their weight ins this afternoon,

Coach Jewel had this to say.

Outstanding camp for this Cadet dual team this year ! The facility at Allen H.S. was top notch and more then accommodating . Big thanks to many of the Eagle first team wrestlers for coming in and working with these young cadets . Also to Oliver Pierce and coach Bernstein for taking time to come in and help out , it was very much appreciated.  And of course a big thanks to coach Best for getting us hooked up with it all .

The camp in general ran very smoothly , focusing on many basics the first day and cleaning up technique . The intensity level was high from the get go as they were pushed hard from the start . The room was good and warm , helping with the weight. All making for a good first day of camp .

Day two they came in pretty sore and tight . We made sure they warmed up well and stretched extensively . Then it was right back to their regular drilling , focusing on speed and timing . All followed up with a little bit of new technique . It was a good time to show it ,  as they were starting to feel the fatigue of the lengthy practices . It gave them something to take their minds off of it and maybe refreshed them some . Then it was right back to counter offense drills and going live from positions .

The last practice was Greco and coach Best and myself covered much of the spectrum . From their ties , attacks , throws , Turns , to their defense . After some lengthy live wrestling  , we wrapped up with some extensive cardio getting the rest of the weight off and the endurance up .

All in all the entire camp was spot on and extremely effective for its purpose . In my opinion they are as tuned up and crisp as they could possibly get in two days.

These cadets are very young but seem to be meshing well . I personally was impressed with the over all character of the team . They showed great work ethic and try through out .

Coach Best and myself very much looking forward to watching these young cadets battle and represent Texas this week🏻

Huge thanks to coach Smith for helping us get checked in for the flight and with overall organization .
