Well let me tell you something brother.....
I didn’t even know AAU wrestling still existed, that’s cute, good for them.
I just took my third trip in 4 years to Heartland. I have zero personal investment and I spend a ton of money. I go because I want to see Indiana compete on a national level. It helps, it helps w recruiting, it helps w exposure, it’s helps w everything. I’m about “Team Indiana” and growing the state because when the dads come and go w their kids, I’ll still be here plugging along trying to raise the level of wrestling in Indiana.
Heading to some AAU dual in a sweaty gym in nowhere TN is nothing more than medal chasing.
