Independent Reading Project

The big question that i decided to study was, how hard is it for a highschool wrestler to balance being a good big brother and plus a good wrestler.  This subject really interests me because I am a highschool wrestler and plus I am an older brother.  I have an idea of how hard the task is t manage both and I know that it must be taken seriously. So, I decided that this book would be a good fit.  The book was able to help me get a good understanding of what must be done to be a good wrestler but also be a good yet responsible and well rounded brother. The three main conclusions that I drew from reading this book were:
  • To be a good brother, you must show love and compassion.
  • To be a good wrestler it takes time,dedication,courgae and alot of hardwork if you want to be the best.
  • Being a good big brother and balancing wrestling is tough, but it can be handled with alot of hardwork and dedication and it is important to take both seriously.
