Team Sports


2008 to 2010

Carey Junior High seems like a rough enough place to learn to wrestle, doesn't it?!
Eli has been in Wrestling since 2008. Taylor's first season of Wrestling was
cut short by a concussion in November, 2009. He was disappointed
to be benched, but we followed the prudent medical advice of the ER doctor.

Eli has continued to participate in wrestling, even playing some football to
stay honed, on the advice of his coaches. He lifts weights as well.

"We need more pictures of Eli wrestling. Football is just his adjunct. Wrestling is his sport," Alissa says.
Granted. God grant me the serenity to photograph those things which I can; to photograph those things
which I cannot; and the wisdom to disregard the difference [apologies to Doctor Bob]...

Won the match today!
