Pursuing Greatness and Defying the Odds


Hey what's going on guys. Has you guys know I am a high school wrestler who is going to be a junior next school year. Now I am not some freak kid who was bred to be a wrestler or a kid who comes from a area where wrestling is life I am a no name wrestler has I like to call myself. Now for my first season in 7th grade I won a match. Yeah I know what your thinking this kids a little pussy and all that but then in 8th grade I was a captain on the team and my record was 14 wins losses 1 draw, I also avenged one of my losses but lost to another kid twice. Woo hoo that's great right but no it is not. Having such an improvement is a great moral victory and made me feel like a god but it all doesn't mean jack s### in high school.

Before my Freshman season in the summer I went to a wrestling club and I got clobbered by nearly everyone I wrestled there. At the time I thought what's wrong with me why can't I win or even score a point on these kids. I eventually learned I was wrestling all the top ranked guys at my weight who had been to states and won sectionals. During my freshman year I honestly didn't learn too much more about wrestling besides one or two crafty moves and just sharpening my skills. I definitely wasn't ready for varsity back then but that was my goal and I didn't achieve that so that sucked. I didn't have a great record either going like 16 and 9 or something like that. I placed in most of the tournaments I wrestled in which was good since got my trophies and medals to show for all the pain and hard work I did to win.

My Sophomore season which I have already discussed before started good then fizzled out after I had a spinal fracture(sounds more worse than it is don't worry about it). I placed second in Ecic's which is the biggest tournament for jv kids around my area. Son of a bitch 2nd number 2 1 so close I could taste it on my tongue and poof it's over kid good luck next year. I'm still bothered by that match almost every day and I hate it. I'm the kind of person who if I lose at something I want a rematch and I will do better and if I lose again I want another rematch until I beat you. I believe I hurt my back in the match before that after I bridged to get out of a cradle and inverted my back way to far. Not trying to make excuses but it's pretty hard to win a match when you can barely move. Anyways all that's in the past and the short two years I have left at this sport I love but hates me.

When I started wrestling my first coach said something like a lot of you will not make it to states or something like that. When he said that I thought f##k you dude I'll show you I'm gonna make people know my name. That's always been my attitude you doubt me or say I suck at something I'm going to prove you wrong. Basically I just have always been the kid with a chip on my shoulder to prove something to myself. Anyway the point is I want to not only go to states but win states. There is a better chance of Mel Gibson wiping a Jews(sorry if that sounds racist but Jews is the plural form of Jew or Jewish or something) ass before that happens. Now its a sad thing when you know you can't achieve your dreams but hey I'm gonna give it my all.

What I cannot do in my wrestling career I will do in my MMA career. My job after I finish after high school with be being a fighter. Hopefully MMA is legal in New York soon so I don't have to go all the way to Ohio or Pennsylvania to have professional to make some cash. I don't just want to train MMA I want to be the pound for pound best in the world. I want to be UFC Champion have the most title defense the most money and most important have the baddest bitches. Okay I'm joking about the last one I just felt like being Mayweather for a minutes. What thing that's makes me confident in that I can be the best in the UFC is that a scrub like Bryan Caraway is I think a top 10 fighter or pretty close to that. I guarantee after 6 months of training when I'm 18 of course I could beat that douche senseless. I don't care if you guys thing jeez what a cocky punk but that's not what I am. I just feel like if my life was dedicated to training everyday I would have more than basic skills like Bryan Caraway.

Alright that's pretty much it I hope that anyone who read this was some what entertained by my rambling thoughts. Oh wait a few more things are everybody needs to remember the name Nick Barnes cause I will be the champ one day and you should be on the lookout. Also Just another random though I really hope Ian McCall still fights when I'm in the UFC because I will whoop that cheap mustache candy ass bully any day of the week when I'm grown up and fight professionally. Please comment your thoughts whether negative or positive do it makes this article writing thing not so pointless
