No Excuses

Featuring Kyle Maynard, Atlanta, Ga.

Kyle Maynard is not the type to let excuses stand in the way of his goals. Kyle's first year of wrestling got off to a rough start, in which he lost every single one of the 35 matches he participated in. In his senior year, he went on to win 36 varsity matches, defeating several state place finishers and champions. He ended up ranking in the top 12 in the nation and was later inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.
