Last weekend I placed 2nd at the 2018 NCWA National Championship. I ended my last wrestling season 19-1 as a National Runner-up. It doesn’t sound as good as 20-0 national champ but it is what it is. I am thankful I was able to recover from knee surgery I had this day last year and stay healthy enough to compete in this tournament. Thanks to my family and @kateherstein for always supporting me and @famuwrestling for coaching me throughout these past few years. I enjoyed every second. 💪👍 #gonoles#allamerican#historywasmade#firstallamerican#fromFloridaState#ncwa
Got back out on the mats yesterday for @american_grappling_federation Texas State Championship, first time out in competition in almost a year for jiujitsu and felt fantastic getting out there again before wrestling season. Pulled two dubs in the men’s pro division at 145, high level competition as always. Belly down heel hook in the first and a mounted d’arce choke finish in the second, got to showcase some pieces of my game I’ve really been emphasizing and improving and yesterday was only a glimpse🙌🏼 Bigger and better things to come and my game is only getting more dangerous. Big thank you to my training partners beating me up all the time and my sponsors (tagged), and especially my dad/coach @chris_brennan_3x_champ even though he couldn’t make it he’s still got the biggest impact on my game. Until next time —> @untwrestling@ncwa_wrestling season starts Sunday in OKC let’s get it🙌🏼💯

Though I ended up one match short of becoming an All-American, my freshman year couldn’t have been better. I’m glad I found a wrestling family that pushes each other to continue to succeed in the sport of wrestling. Next season we’ll be back and we won’t be leaving empty handed. 🏅 #ncwa#wrestling#Cwooo

In honor of the #NCWA National tournament going on this weekend, here’s a #flashback to my competition days 🤼♂️
The sport has given me so much more than I would have ever imagined. The competitive drive. The work ethic. I learned how to prepare, how to endure, and more importantly how to fail. Wrestling teaches you many lessons, but learning how to take a loss and keep moving forward was the hardest. It taught me that even falling short of expectations, you can still reach personal achievement.
Shout out to @_wellsyy and @k1ngbam for reaching the podium! Now its time to relax, have fun, and leave that arena with a W!

Congratulations Big Bend wrestlers who are currently sitting in 12th place out of 77 teams competing in the NCWA Nationals in Allen, TX. The second session of the tournament began this morning. Good luck to all of our wrestlers still competing! #BigBendCC#BigBendWrestling#NCWA
As a coach, there is no greater feeling than seeing your athletes give it their all. Whether they are victorious or suffer a loss, you know that you have prepared them to the best of your ability.
Next to being a husband and a father, “Coach” is a title that I hold dearly and take seriously. To those that have wrestled their last match, it’s been an honor. To those that are still going, I promise to give my all.
Day 2 getting started with both men and women competing. Paul Adkisson finished day 1 with a 2-1 record including a pin in his second match. He will start in the wrestle backs today to try and earn All-American honors. #NCWA#Championships
