I want to wish my wrestling coach, mentor, and great friend, @matrat4life
, a very Happy Birthday!!!!
I cannot thank this man enough for all he has taught me, and all he has done for me. I truly wouldn’t have accomplished all I’ve done or be who I am today without him.
And he taught me more than just wrestling techniques and winning medals.
He taught me how to be a leader, and I wasn’t even aware of it.
He taught me the value of hard work, and to not be afraid of it.
He taught me the value of being real, and never sugar-coated anything.
He taught me the value of a job well done, and the feeling of fulfillment in truly earning it, and not just in the end result but in the journey that got me there too.
He taught me to give credit where it’s due, and to never forget where I came from.
He taught me how to stand-up for what I believe and face my fears, even when the odds were against me.
He taught me to stand up for others and have their backs, even if it put me at risk and at sacrifice of my own self interest.
He taught me the value of giving back to others, and what it means to be a true servant leader by his example.
And I have done my very best to pass everything you taught me on to the next generation. And in this way, you have impacted each one of their lives through me, and we are all so grateful.
It was so special for us all to be there the night you were awarded the Oklahoma High School Wrestling Coach of the Year Award!! Recognition that is long overdue!!
And we promise to follow in the example you set for us, and give back, teach, and lead the next generation!! So on behalf of myself and my leadership team, @_sara.mlau_
, and @josiah_absher
, we say “THANK YOU COACH!!”, you changed our lives, and we hope you have the most fantastic birthday!!!!
