"Weekend Wars" Wrestling's best kept secret is getting bigger and better. Many coaches are bringing kids, in caravan style to take advantage of it.

"The quantity and quality levels of matches are unbelievable."

"This is awesome."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting this on for kids."

"I had heard about this two years ago and I could kick myself for not having come sooner."


These are the common phrases being made by coaches and parents attending Weekend Wars. Attendance records are unbelievable - Warriors flock to Camp Verde to get an opportunity to compete at Weekend wars. They even drove hundreds of miles to come here.

This weekend, four out-of-state teams showed up: Cimarron Memorial - Nevada; Shadow Ridge - Nevada; La Costa Canyon- California; Pagosa Springs - Colorado.

Everybody got 10 or more matches. All out-of-state teams said they are returning again this summer.

I want to thank all the Arizona teams that showed up and represented their clubs. Many teams went swimming in the Verde River or across the street at the town pool to cool down after a barn burner of a day.

I presented three coaches - Andrew Tomaso, Andy Alejandro and Frank Manolio - with honors. They received recognition for their contributions to Arizona wrestling and the kids in their community. They were each given awards and a standing ovation.

All of the coaches that support Weekend Wars collectively provide kids with opportunities in the activity of wrestling while teaching them life success skills.

Success isn't defined by the trophies our kids earn. It's the focus, discipline and perseverance the sport fosters in the youth and the life lessons it teaches them. That philosophy is built on principles and standards that embrace integrity, respect, hard work, character, focus, discipline, goal setting, perseverance and sacrifice. These are the characteristics they need to be successful on the mat, in school and in the workplace. These are the traits that will help prepare them for whatever life will send their way.

The spirit of brotherhood is so strong at these events. I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for all his blessings and give him all the credit. He is the captain of our ship, the cornerstone of our foundation and the head of this house. If he be for us who can be against us?

The electrifying Ryan Allred does it again. He's got more endurance, speed, accuracy, determination, and most importantly heart than any other wrestler in his weight class. Despite several efforts to set up a match between (Camp Verde's) Ryan Allred and (Deer Valley's) best Jacob Swift, another undefeated wrestler, all invitations have been declined by Jacob Swift. Many fans look forward to what many believe will be one of the best matches in a decade.

The dynamic Uhler brothers have repeatedly annihilated all challengers. Without hesitation I can say they are the real deal. They both went undefeated for the day as well. It would be a good bet that they both take the championship state titles in their respective weight classes. This weekend Racer Uhler easily defeated those who challenged him. He has more of a "slick" style, super quick, chain wrestler, who only uses his strength when necessary. Hayden Uhler is an absolute joy to watch compete - a takedown artist in the truest sense of the phrase. He has an ability to create leg attacks that is unsurpassed by any other wrestler in his weight class - his head inside single is truly picture-perfect. He epitomizes the word "skill." In terms of technique and timing, he is unmatched.

The stars of this program, were and always will be our sponsors. Many thanks to Stacey Barker, Tracy Tudor, Bob Weir, Charlie from Sol-Air, Gabriel Chagolla, Tread Lightly Barefoot Equine Services, Eric Harms of High Desert Cycles, Josh McReynolds, Jonora Mejia of Verde Valley Ambulance CO, John McReynolds, Robert Lake of Salt River Project, Greg Elmer Bashas' food store, Harkins Theatres, Camp Verde Bugle, Camp Verde School District, Bill Schwartz from Bashas', Bill Geyer of BG Automotive, Steve Lobaugh of Salt River Materials Group (Phoenix Cement), Ron and Lori Paul of Paul Insurance Agency, Brenda Mann Harrison of Safeco Insurance Agent Giving Program and most importantly the Lord Jesus Christ for without him, none of this would have been possible.

@ respects to respects

Wow!
Four and a half months to formulate and articulate a response? Really?
That has to be some sort of world record.

I would say your spelling, grammar and wrongly used words is a sad statement about you. Smiles.
If you cannot even master the English language why in the world would anyone give serious consideration to your out there opinions?

@ Robert you loose buddy.

People know how to read and your stating a falsehood over and over does not automatically turn it into a truth. Your the one who has lost because your are the one who has sacrificed personal honor or integrity promoting a lie.

A very sad statement for you.

Jacob swift has never declined any match with anyone! Some kids choose to work on freestyle & greco. He also works out with other champs all over the valley! Why my kid would be disrespected on this website is beyond me. We've never have disrespected allred at anytime!! We love watching the kid! So keep my kids name out of your article trying to make it look like he's running. We will continue to train the way that works for us!

@ Respects to Respect

Ah, the old "I was taken out of context!" gag.
Nice try, Won't fly.

I am sorry that I have made you so angry by pointing out your inconsistencies. So I will back off now. They are much more visible to all than you imagine anyway. Your insults are not nearly as clever as you perceive them to be.
And certainly of no avail to your position.

Besides the novelty of popping your balloons is over and it is really much too easy to do as to consider it a major achievement or challenge.

Adios Amigo

@Melissa

Melissa, why do you so disrespect yourself?
You point at me and talk about projecting while the simple truth is that you are the only one projecting anything.

You asked me these questions in your last post and I answered directly:

"...so you would of course encourage no one of any religion or faith system to publically talk about their religion or confess their faith systems. Correct?"

My reply: "No"

"Or is this another unwarranted assumption on my part?"

My reply "Yes."

Now you come out with this::

"I regret that you find the Coach's public statement of his belief in Jesus to be insulting and offensive.
I don't."

This is all your own projection and not the reality of anything that was written by me. This is you attempting to defend your behavior which you know cannot actually be defended.

You speak of the coach and Christianity as if you are their personal defender, ok. Then if you are so certain and assured of the way in which you have defended them, why don't you take all of what has been presented here on these pages and see just exactly what the coach and a pastor's opinions would be of your defense of them.

Melissa, you point to me as being the bad guy in all of this but in truth you know that it is you who has behaved badly. That in your attempts to defend you crossed a line not once but several times and the line you crossed is in complete opposition to both what the coach is doing for his team members and what Christianity would say is acceptable.

@ Robert,

You know the context in which these references were made, to distort that is to project a falsehood.

You continue to grasp at flimsy excuses and empty rhetoric as a justification for you own actions because I had the audacity to point out that you were possibly not setting the best example.

Now your angry and out to try and prove some point as to whether or not within the context of all of your flimsy rhetoric there may be some modicum of truth.

"Forget what Jesus (sorry I must use his name for clarity) would says about wrestling..." I don't believe I made any reference to his personal purview on that but, ok.

A simple question for you Robert, now I am making an assumption here but I am basing it off of your reactions and your writing,

If on some odd chance you had the opportunity to discuss this matter directly with Jesus one on one in person (sorry again I must use his name for clarity) what exactly do you believe his reaction to all that has passed from you in this matter would be?

Now heres the rub, your answer can remain private if you wish because it affects me not. However, what is at stake here is your understanding of his teachings, and your own personal integrity, If you are a believer, then you know in your heart that he will know if you are being honest, forthright, and truthful.

If you are not a believer what was the point?

Robert, bear all of the false witnessing against me that you wish, if it makes you feel better. Your words have no affect on me. I know who I am, I know what I believe, and I am aware of my own truth.

I would not fear having such a conversation with Jesus, I often do in my heart, if I nave done wrong, he'll let me know.

Well Respects to Respect

You are so cute and so practiced at the art of projection as to be sublimely unconscious of it.

Your elfish attempts at condescension are most entertaining.

I regret that you find the Coach's public statement of his belief in Jesus to be insulting and offensive.
I don't.
Nor would I find such a statement of belief from any other religion offensive, as you would not.....from any other religion except the one it is acceptable to attack.

On the contrary I think you take great joy out of what you perceive and delude yourself into believing is the embarrassment of others. I do think that you take great joy in preening for yourself and practicing what you mistakenly take for sly insults towards others. It comes across in your verbiage with great clarity. I imagine you think the reflected light from this somehow enhances yourself.

Ah well, all the attractiveness of a wayward child.

Best Wishes, but time to close it out. Take the last word and think kindly of me.

@ Respects to Respect

You say, and I quote
"I made no mention of any particular religion"

Really? Lets see about that.

Quote
"...but the linking of that sport with religion and Jesus"

Quote
"Not everyone is religious and not everyone who is, is Christian."

Quote
"...A vigorous aggressive contact sport and a religious philosophy that promotes the opposite."

Quote
"2.6 Billion Christians in a world population of 6.9 billion"

Forget Melissa's question of if you read comments by others. My question is do you even read your own comments?
ROFL

All things considered I think that I shall stick with the word phony. And maybe throw in pious and self-righteous as well.

As to how Jesus would feel about rough and tumble wrestling, as opposed say to the new age, metrosexual, jammie boy Jesus. Let me give you a hint on where to find that out.
Try the first book of the Bible, chapter 32. Key words Jacob and Israel.

@ Melissa,

"Naturally your sensitivities on this issue would apply equally to "all" religions and faith systems...

Yes.

...so you would of course encourage no one of any religion or faith system to publically talk about their religion or confess their faith systems. Correct?

No

Or is this another unwarranted assumption on my part?"

Yes.

From Your Posts:

"First off I did not mention religion or for that matter Christianity. Mr. "Holy Roller" brought up Christianity, and he did so merely to indulge himself in the pleasure of mocking it."... "He then went on to insult testosterone (men) for also no apparent reason. Which makes about as much rational sense as whining about the spots on the leopard.,,,

When I referred to Holy Roller as he/she and as himself/herself is that the point that you assumed that I assumed that the individual was a male? Honestly now do you even read comments by others before responding to them?

Melissa your words are clearly directed at the male gender no inference of the feminine nor the use of a gender neutral voice. How can you write what you write, only to try and deny what is clearly stated for all to read?

This runs in the same vein as saying your not going to do a thing and then do it.

Are you honestly trying to say that the gentleman's sneering at "testosterone fueled skill sports" was not a reference to men?

Obviously, the comment was directed AT males, however the comment implies nothing as to the gender of the commentator.

Melissa stop, you're only embarrassing yourself. Frankly I'm embarrassed for you. I find no joy in letting people do this to themselves on a public forum.

Well Respect to Respects
To a certain mind-set pointing out sarcasm, irony and satire is essential, otherwise they would remain serenely oblivious to it.

If the point you are trying to make is that no one should mention their religion or confess their faith system publically, least they offend someone, just come out and say it.
I would accept that position. I would not agree with it, but I would accept it.

Naturally your sensitivities on this issue would apply equally to "all" religions and faith systems, so you would of course encourage no one of any religion or faith system to publically talk about their religion or confess their faith systems. Correct?
Or is this another unwarranted assumption on my part?

Really? You actually expect a sentient human to buy into such a dis-ingenious claim?
Seriously now?
Sweet dimpled smile.

@ Robert

Much of what I would reply to you I have already replied to Melissa, so no need to repeat.

However I will reiterate:

We taught our members honesty, respect, integrity, perseverance, responsibility, skills, and team work very successfully and without having to invoke any religion or a deity.

Religion has its appropriate place. It does not need to be at the forefront of every activity. Not everyone is religious and not everyone who is, is Christian. As respect is a part of this program/sport then a part of respecting others is acknowledging this to be the case and being respectful of it.

I made no mention of any particular religion. Based upon what I wrote your claims as to either my hypocrisy or my position in respects to Christians or Christianity are baseless assumptions which you have pulled from the air as a flimsy defense .

No Robert, if the only reply that you can muster in response to my post are baseless assumptions and pointless rhetoric, then the only conclusion which can be inferred is that you really haven't any basis for writing what you have written and you in fact know this. That all of this is a phony ineffectual attempt to defend something which cannot be defended and the only thing which has truly been wounded is your pride.

@ Melissa

We read the same comments. What differs is the way we each chose to react to them. You believe your responses to be appropriate. I however, do not.

The issue of religion was presented within the article and it was not a question of whether or not you mentioned it. The posts in question were playing upon the interesting juxtaposition of a vigorous aggressive contact sport and a religious philosophy which promotes the opposite.

2.6 billion(BTW) Christians, in a world population of 6.9 billon. That leaves 4.4 billion who are not Christian. Of the 2.6 billion, you have no way in which to actually determine which are devout/sincere and which are not. That is something that only their deity can determine, not you.

In respects to testosterone, its a commonly enough used phrase. I have often found that those who are the least confident in a thing, usually feel the need to defend it the most vigorously. Frankly men really do not need you to come rushing to their defense.

Neither of those posts mentioned children in any way. That is all your own inference, not their words.

As for not delving into the character or lack there of, of others, to imply that you would not do a thing, only to then do it, says what exactly about your own character?

Interesting that you imply that HR is a male. Really you have nothing, other than your own assumptions, to gauge that by or what these people would or would not do under any given circumstance. Assumptions often prove to be a valueless currency.

Sarcasm by the way, requires no sub-text when aptly applied by a truly sharp and intelligent wit.

@ Respects to Respect

Ah I see. The fault lies with coach Chagolla Sr. for mentioning the name of Jesus and his belief in Him.

If he had just kept his mouth shut about that it would not have forced and obligated Dale Ruff and Mr. Holy Roller to ridicule and make fun of children, sports and belief in Jesus.

I suppose it would have been fine for the coach to credit Zeus or Zoroaster or Odin or Apollo or Allah or Buddha, but crediting Jesus was just a line not to be crossed.

Your hypocrisy is showing bright and clear. All beliefs are equal and all beliefs are worthy of respect and tolerance......except don't mention the Jesus word. That is offensive and not to be tolerated.

Thanks for clearing up your bigotry and intolerance for us. We appreciate that. What is the word I am looking for?......? Oh right....that would be phony.

Well Respects to Respect,
I do not know what comments you were reading, but I certainly know which ones that I was. My comments were completely accurate and on point. I stand by them.

First off I did not mention religion or for that matter Christianity. Mr. "Holy Roller" brought up Christianity, and he did so merely to indulge himself in the pleasure of mocking it.

I won't delve into the character. or lack thereof of individuals who gratuitously denigrate the sincere religious beliefs of two Billion humans, just for some perverse pleasure they take in doing so.
He then went on to insult testosterone (men) for also no apparent reason. Which makes about as much rational sense as whining about the spots on the leopard.
Myself I like men, and I like the civilization they have created, and I like the things they have provided for us.
I will never hold them in disdain for being what they are.

I made no comment on what Mr. Ruff had to say, but since you bring it up. He also missed no chance to take a shot at Christians, and he absolutely insulted the sport of wrestling, and the kids in that sport.

Again I will not delve into the character, or lack thereof of people who insult children and denigrate the religious beliefs of others. They can contemplate their own character.

Why do I think neither one of them would insult Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists or Muslims?
No they only have the 'courage' to 'speak truth to power' when it comes to Christians.

Such bravery they display.
(yes that would be sarcasm)
