Jay Borschel and Dan LeClere aspire to be four-time high school wrestling champions in Iowa. File Size: 5MB.
To be a wrestling champion in Iowa is to achieve greatness—individual glory where the only back to pat is your own. I really like this book because I wrestle i can't really relate much with the character in this book because there all great wrestlers four and three time state champions.
This book took place in the late 1990's to the early 2000s. I also liked how the author described how Dan and Jay felt and reacted to things throughout their senior years. Each wrestler faces adversity with the media. They both show the drive to win and have different ways of doing it.
This book follows thier journey duing their senior year of wrestling career. It's just a part of the game.
We covered the first emphasis yesterday. I know how it is to be at the top and lonely, because everyone running next to you is a competitor, anyone could unseat you at any time, and steal all of the glory.
As the two boys approach the finals in a series of increasingly tense and hard-fought matches, Jay and Dan reveal the forces that drive young men through Four days to glory grueling routine of early-morning and late-night workouts, social isolation, and starvation diets—and the rewards of the wrestling life.
I didn't have many other books to read at the time, since I ended up carrying it around with me for a few weeks. The book tells about how you should ne I just got done reading Four Days To Glory and it is about two Iowa Wrestlers who came from a family who loved wrestling.
From the Hempstead side came no activity, no one rising from his chair or loosening up or pulling off his sweats. The two boys he writes about are more focused on wrestling the last matches of their high school Four days to glory than anything else, and they will do anything to win it. The title is interesting because it seems to say these wrestlers have to fight a lot of adversity to stay on top and work hard no matter what.
Anyone who's spent much time around wrestling and caught wrestling fever will love this book. Did Jay and Dan reach there dreams in this wonderful true story. I would definately read this but I also recommend this to others who may not be familiar with sports because it could still teach a lesson about overcoming odds.
With compassionate wit and insight, Campbell McGrath transports us on a journey through contemporary society, transforming the commonplace into scenes of profound revelation. For example when Jay had bronchitis going into the state tournament, there was a very gloomy tone.
Well it's not, and it's about a real as books get. After checking in at the officials' table, Jay had walked out to center mat, popped from side to side on the balls of his toes and cranked his head from shoulder to shoulder, waiting for the opponent who was not coming. Four days to glory is about two wrestlers from Iowa who have the chance to do what few others have ever done before.
With compassionate wit and insight, Campbell McGrath transports us on a journey through contemporary society, transforming the commonplace into scenes of profound revelation.
But at the end of their senior year Jay, Dan, and Joey Slaton a three time state champion, decide to go to the Virginia Tech.
I also liked how the author described how Dan and Jay felt and reacted to things throughout their senior years.
