    brodygrant reacted to Perseverance in Worst draw   
    Great point Jeremy.  It aligns with Silas and I's philosophy to a "T".  Being fairly new to the sport of wrestling compared to many on this site (7yrs). I would grow a little more perturbed every year as I would hear parents/coaches/wrestlers complaining about draws, or hoping they had an easy road through.  I can tell you this......that was rarely an issue with the Doah coaches.  Slivka, Gary Jr & Sr each had a "bring it on mentality".  Being cut from that similar cloth, is a major factor of our growing so close off the mat as well.  I'll only add that Coach Barbosa has carried on that same approach. It comes natural for him being from the south side of Muncie. ?  Assistant Coach Walker is no different.
    The Allred outlook is simple......Those who worry about the draw are entertaining fear & self doubt.  Hoping for an easy path is reserved for individuals whose bartering for podium spots.  Not for those whose goal is its peak.  Cressel & Walton are both very deserving of all the recognition and success they've worked so hard for.  They're well coached and their college commitments speak for themselves.  However.....these are matches we've wanted all season.  But we'll focus on beating Moore Friday night first.
    Bottom line......We love the draw.  Awesome opportunity to make a LOUD statement!  And they'll be dealing with a hungry youngster whose well prepared, well studied, unafraid to lose.....and wrestling free with no pressure. The best 182lb'er in the State will stand on top of the podium this weekend regardless of their bracket pairings.  And it could be any 1 of 16 young men in the bracket.  We genuinely wish everyone competing a great week of practice, continued good health and to just enjoy the moment.  Go to war, have fun and score points.  Never lose sight of how much of a blessing it is to be there.

    The academy training is a huge advantage here.  We have club and our off-season, but many of our younger guys and high school guys supplement it with Red Cobra and Contenders.  We did not have this option at Mishawaka.  It makes life much easier.  
    Here is somethint that has not been said yet:
     
    Administrative Support.  I loved my AD, Assistant AD, and Principal at Mishawaka.  I barely knew any of my Superintendents. I don’t even remember their names or how many there were.  At any of our competitions, you will see multiple Brownsburg Administrators- Principal, Asst Prinicipals, AD, Assistant AD, and my superintendent has missed one tournament since I’ve been here.  It was for a wedding and he made me promise to send updates.  
    This week he text me to tell him when brackets came out on trackwrestling for semistate.  30 minutes later he sent me a list of questions about how we match up with everyone. I have never even heard of anything like this from the top.  
    The way they courting me during my hardest time was insane.  I was planning to go coach in another state.  Looking at houses.  He won me over in 10 minutes.  I don’t think people realize how much of an impact he has on Brownsburg in general, especially wrestling.  His name is Dr. Jim Snapp.  I tried calling him Dr. Snapp for months.  Finally, he pulled me off to the side and said, “My name is Jim and you are my friend Darrick.”  
    How did we land a Kyle Ayersman?  Jim met with him and I for over an hour. I called him and asked him to meet with Kyle.  We were in his office the next morning.  I’m very lucky.
