The Knoxville Middle School Wrestling program is making improvements not only on the mat but off the mat as well. Coach Jeff Heberlan says while the guys are learning the ins and outs of wrestling he is also teaching them life skills. He says the competition will take care of its self while the life skills are more important than winning or losing a match. He ads he goes by what his high school wrestling coach taught him was that first you’re a gentlemen, then a scholar and then an athlete.
