3 AHH YES GOOD WEDNESDAY EVERYONE….I’M WEDNESDAY AHH YES GOOD WEDNESDAY EVERYONE….I’M JERMAINE FERRELL, I HOPE YOUR DAY WAS WONDERFULL AND BLESSED….LIKE BUTTER LETS GET ON A ROLL WITH YOUR NIGHTTIME SPORTS.THIS WEEKEND, THE FERRUM WRESTLING BERGLUND CENTER…AND AS DAVID DEGUZMAN EXPLAINS… THE PANTHERS ARE LED BY AN INSPIRING FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN A PAIR OF HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHTERS. 3 12-171:41-1:46 ALVENO: THIS MAN IS LIKE A LITTLE ANKLE- BITER. HE’S MORE OF A LEG-ATTACK TYPE GUY. TYRIQUE: HE’S MORE UPPERBODY. HE’S A BIG DUDE. ANYTHING UPPER BODY. “MY NAME IS ALVENO MATTHEWS. AND I’M TYRIQUE NOLEN. AND WE WRESTLE FOR FERRUM COLLEGE.” BEFORE BECOMING TEAMMATES, THIS PAIR OF PANTHERS WERE COMPETITORS…ALVENO MATTHEWS WRESTLED FOR FRANKLIN COUNTY WHILE TYRIQUE NOLEN COMPETED FOR MAGNA VISTA.A: IT WAS ON THE MAT. I THINK IT WAS IN THE FIRST YEAR THEY HAD THE PIEDMONT DISTRICT. WAS IT? 3 T: YUP. A: DON’T GET OFFENDED. I PINNED HIM IN 20 SECONDS IN HIGH SCHOOL. PINNED HIM IN 20 SECONDS IN HIGH SCHOOL. THEN GOT TO COLLEGE AND SAID ‘HEY REMEMBER WHEN I PINNED YOU IN HIGH SCHOOL? AND AFTER THAT WE JUST TOOK OFF. BOTH WRESTLE IN THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION… WHICH OFTEN MEANS COMPETING AGAINST EACH OTHER IN PRACTICE FOR A SPOT IN THE LINE-UP…T: ONCE WE GET IN HERE, IT’S JUST ‘YOU BETTER BE READY, BECAUSE I’M READY.” I THINK THAT THROUGH US WORKING TOGETHER IN THE PAST TWO OR THREE YEARS THAT’S JUST KINDA BEEN HOW IT WAS. IF I CAME IN NOT FEELING ALL TOO WELL BUT HE CAME IN JUST LIKE A BALL OF FIRE, IT MADE ME WRESTLE. MATTHEWS QUALIFIED FOR THE N-C-DOUBLE-A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP MEET LAST YEAR…A FEAT HE NEVER WOULD’VE ACHIEVED WITHOUT NOLEN PUSHING HIM IN PRACTICE. A: HE FORCES IT OUT OF ME. IF I’M NOT READY TO GO, HE’S ON MY TAIL, LIKE ‘C’MON, PICK IT UP. WE GOTTA GO, WE GOTTA DO THIS.’ IF HE’S NOT READY, THEN I’M THE SAME WAY. WE FEED OFF EACH OTHER.’ MAKE EACH OTHER BETTER BY BOTH HAVING THAT COMPETITIVE EDGE TAKEDOWN AND EVERY ESCAPE.”OFF THE MAT, THE TWO FORM AN UNBREAKABLE BOND. T: WE’VE BEEN THERE FOR EACH OTHER THROUGH A LOT OF DIFFERENT SITUATIONS AND REALLY IT KINDA STARTED AFTER REGIONALS LAST YEAR. HE HAD A LOT GOING ON WITH HIM AND I WAS THERE FOR AND EVEN WHEN I HAD STUFF GOING ON WITH FIRST ONE THERE FOR ME YOU GO THROUGH SOME 3 HARD THINGS IN LIFE, YOU NEED THAT FRIEND THAT’S GOING TO BE THERE NO MATTER WHAT THE TO BE THERE TO MOTIVATE YOU AND TALK TO YOU AND BE THERE FOR YOU DURING YOUR THEIR TIGHT FRIENDSHIP — STRENGTHENING THE WRESTLING TEAM. A: WE SHOWED A SIDE TO OUR RELATIONSHIP THAT EVERYBODY ON THE TEAM HAS TAKEN A PART OF W-F-X-R SPORTS. 3 3 áááCROSS TALKáááWE’LL HAVE A FINAL LOOK AT WEATHER AFTER THE BREAK.
