    Remembering Mike Ester

    The Indiana wrestling community lost a great coach yesterday. Mike Ester of Fort Wayne passed away. Mike was the coach of Fort Wayne Snider before starting the Indiana Tech program and then recently returning to Snider as an assistant to help coach his son Brady Ester who is going into his senior season. Mike was my high school coach. I graduated from Snider in 2004. He had a tremendous impact on my life and I wouldn't be the man or coach I am today apart from his influence. I know Mike had a personality that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way but those closest to him know how big his heart was for his wrestlers and this sport. Even if you would classify him as 'enemy' you cannot question his passion. Remember, we all have our flaws and it never hurts to extend grace rather than judgment. This is a husband, a father, a son, a brother and a fellow coach. It is times like these when our community has an opportunity to set our differences and our competitive nature aside to respond in love and support to show just how bonded and unique this family of wrestlers is. As a gift for the family, I am collecting letters from individuals who have a memory, a word of encouragement or a story to share of how Mike impacted your life. This will help capture some sweet memories that they can reflect on to know just how special he was. If you would like to contribute, you can send it to me via e-mail at spartangrappling@gmail.com. If you know someone who doesn't visit this discussion board but would like to contribute, please share this message with them. The family is unbelievably broken and at a loss right now, please lift them up in your prayers. Whatever you are facing today may not be as big or as serious as it seems. Take the time to let someone know they are loved. God bless, Nathan DeVaux - Head Coach - Homestead High School Snider '04

    My guess is the mayor has a few tricks up his sleeve and still dominates.

    Brennen Cernus Transfer

    I'm Brennen's father. I received a text from a parent who's son attends Culver regarding this post and the comments made by AdamscoBuschhh. Just to clear the air you don't know me and we never met prior to the finals. I have no idea who you are or why you felt obligated to completely fabricate a post like this. We were in our hotel room between the break prior to finals and my dad doesn't even drink. Anyone that has been around my son knows that he is a quiet, respectful, and focused young man that is a hard worker. I truly feel sorry for you that you would make false statements aimed at a 15yr. old, its pathetic. My name is TJ Cernus, I'd like to know your real name as well. Moving forward, feel free to contact me directly so you can direct your false statements towards me rather than my son. Culver is not a military academy for kids with disciplinary issues. Any one with half a brain would already know this. If they did they would be gone in less than a month, the school has zero tolerance for this. It has military structure however it is not what would be considered rigid. Wyoming Seminary was initially our first school of choice last year prior to enrolling at Culver. We ended up choosing Culver because it was much closer to home and there were a few other families that we are friends with whose son's were also attending. We left Culver because the head coach was not what he portrayed himself or the program to be. There was no direction for the program. It was very unorganized, undisciplined, and there was a severe lack of technical coaching ability. Josh Harper was later added to the staff, he was the reason we decided to stay this past year. Josh was solid, he was intense, a good motivator, and he was there to make everyone better, he cared. Culver is an excellent academic academy and we were disappointed to leave. It was not an easy decision. Academics are our top priority and we expected to have a good balance with wrestling as well, unfortunately that was not the case. 1prouddad, thank you for your comment, we greatly appreciate it. Indiana puts on a great state tournament and we were proud to be able to be a part of it. My son and our family received an outpouring of support from complete strangers during the course of the season and this is rare. Indiana is very much like Ohio, the wrestling community is a pretty tight knit group that for the most part supports one another. There were numerous people who congratulated Brennen and our family after the finals that were genuinely happy for him. This will be an experience that we will never forget. Thank you Indiana. Best of luck.
