West Virginia Wrestling


by Dr. Bill Welker

The Wrestler's Creed

It takes a man to stick it out,
He wants to cry but only shouts,
He ponders quitting yet then looks up,
His prime objective - the Victor's Cup!

Sometimes he thinks and wonders why,
But then, thanks the Lord for his chance to try,
He's sweating, tired, and considers rest,
But keeps on moving -- his goal, be the best!

It takes dedication, simple and pure,
To be on top, he's got to endure,
He must prevail, be second to none,
His ultimate drive, be Number One!
