"I'm a huge wrestling fan. Wrestlers have so many great qualities that athletes need to have."

- Bob Stoops , Head Football Coach of Oklahoma University

One of the most important relationships that a coach can have is a good working relationship with the football program.  It is important that wrestling coaches show the connection between football and wrestling and how they compliment each other.
