My son is a senior on the varsity wrestling group. He and I have each arrive a lengthy way since he first started wrestling for the duration of his sophomore year. When he first knowledgeable me he needed to attempt out for the higher faculty team, I experienced all the typical parental apprehensions -furthermore some.
Sure, I was involved about injuries but when my son brought residence some files from the coach telling us of the viruses, germs and infections that can be picked up on the wrestling mats and wrestling gear, I was mortified!
We're conversing MRSA, Ringworm, Herpes Simplex, Staph, Strep, and Hepatitis B to title only a number of. These infectious, contagious nightmares ended up not just on the wrestling mats. They reside in the headgear, pads, equipment baggage and most other hard athletic surfaces.
