I was in the drive-thru at a Sonic when I got a phone call from an unknown number.
I answered it.
It was my doctor.
He said, Jaqub, I hate to be the one to inform you – you have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
I was 19 years old and was a standout wrestler on the State, National and International level.
You just don’t know what journey wrestling is really preparing you for.
The life traits, attitude, and perseverance the sport of wrestling teaches you are beyond anything any school can do for you.
In reality, my wrestling career prepared me for my greatest match….. against LIFE.
