Do you know what wrestling is? Not like the televised WWE, wrestling is a real sport with rules, points, and teams. Wrestling is a one versus one sport, and the point is to pin the opponent (keep them on their back for three seconds) or to score the most points. An incredible wrestler at GBMS is Colson Elliot, 7th grade. Colson has been wrestling for nine years and has done exceedingly well. 

Colson practices with the high school team and with the Gulf Breeze wrestling club. His father, Austin Elliot, is the head coach of the club and helps coach the high school. “I enjoy being able to hang out with Colson,” says Coach Elliot, “while we participate in a sport that we mutually love.” Coach Elliot has been coaching for 11 years and has been coaching Colson since he started. 

Colson Elliot (bottom) attempts to escape by standing up.

Throughout his nine years of wrestling, Colson has wrestled in several states, winning countless tournaments. Colson plans to wrestle throughout high school. He also plays lacrosse on the 13 U team. He has a great future in wrestling ahead of him.  

Though wrestling isn’t like WWE, it’s just as tough and Colson is tougher than any wrestler out there. He practices almost every day during the season. If you’re tough enough to wrestle, give it a try, but it will be hard to ever be as good as Colson.
