I remember first learning how to broadcast wrestling on the play-by-play side. For one straight month, I watched all the YouTube footage I could find with NCAA matches and took notes like crazy.
Then I reviewed those notes until I got most of the basic wrestling moves down. By the time I got to this bout you’ll see below, which was part of a high school dual meet from February 2015, I felt pretty good.
Wrestling is tons of fun to broadcast, and I think it gets overlooked sometimes. I’m proud to have this as part of my skill set.
A huge thanks to my color commentator Chuck Mondale.
