Letter to my son:
“For richer or poor in sickness or health “words I once said to your mother never knowing they would be for you. It felt like yesterday I was standing at your bed side tears running down my face, watching you fight for your life while the doctors talk about things I know nothing of. I just wanted you better with our without wrestling in our lives. 2 years later and here I stand nervous about you competing for your third attempt to be a Triple Crown winner. Win or lose matters nothing to me, you have nothing to prove you’re already the best in my eyes; win not for me but for you. Stand on top of that podium and defy all odds for that’s what we do best. I love you....Pride is what you have.
This weekend 3000 wrestlers will compete for both team and individual national gold. Yaya is one of few who will wrestle for a rare opportunity at the Triple Crown. As rare as the opportunity is the actual winner. With a 2x National Championship team and over 20 national champions we have only won one since are start 6 years ago. And yaya stands alone this weekend. But he isn’t alone, don’t miss your chance to watch this young man defy his odds and beat his sickness. This has nothing to do with the prestigious award as it has everything to do with him being able to battle back after his traveled road. One day before Yaya finds himself center stage he will spend his day in Children’s Hospital receiving his infusion which isn’t an option but a necessity for his life. As he struggles to manage his illness you would never know. He never complains, never asks for special treatment, yet he strives to be the best in all he does. This is an opportunity for us to be there to support much more then national glory, but a celebration of life and an amazing effort and display of courage. Be there when he wins his 17th national championship as it will be the most special day to him. Duran wrestling is more than a team we are family and this weekend we will be in full attendance. Be loud, be proud, a champion will be crowned.
Duran rookies hit there stride right on time. Nate has been wrestling very hard and very consistent on the wrestling mat. I watched him wrestle a couple weeks ago and earn a silver medal with three overtime matches. Since then he has been working very hard and consistently earning himself two gold medals. This last weekend at the Air-force Academy he looked awesome and we are excited to see him next week at the state tournament. Great Job Nate Pride is what you have
Jax earns a gold medal. Jax has been wrestling tough the second half of the season and we are ready to watch him put all his hard work into play at the state tournament next week. Continue to work hard Jax and you will continue to get better each and everyday. Your doing a great job. Pride is what you have.
Isabella Cross is very hardworking and dedicated to her craft. It will show when she wrestles the girls division. She has yet to lose in the girls division for our league events. She is also on of few girls that age who will also wrestle in the Elite Division for the coed. She has been practicing super hard and we are excited to see what she can do come the end of the month. Isabella continue to work and be your best. Pride is what you have

The Duran Team traveled 9 hours to compete in the Battle of the Belts National tournament in Kansas this past weekend. We had three more wrestlers earn national gold. Deven Lopez was the first to enter the finals match and win. Next was Acelyn Duran followed by Damien Reyes. This tournament was very tough and we are excited to add it to our list for next season. Acelyn also won the outstanding wrestling award making that our second this season. Great job to all of our Duran Families and wrestlers that attend this tournament.
