Mason Crowe is an eighth grade student at Flinn Middle School. Mason played football and wrestled for Flinn over the past two years. During our first dual of the season last year, Mason dislocated his elbow and broke the medial epicondyle off the end of his humerus bone. The doctors reset the dislocation but missed resetting the epicondyle. Mason went back to the doctor for a check-up a week after the injury and the broken bone was noticed. They surgically repaired the broken bone and put a screw in to hold into its proper place.
This school year Mason returned to the football field playing linebacker but was hesitant to get back onto the mat. Mason and I had several conversations about his injury and his fears of reinjuring his elbow. We eased our way into the season and built his confidence as the season progressed. Mason went on to compete in the IESA State Wrestling Championship Tournament.
Through his hard work and perseverance he was able to conquer his fears and achieve at an exceptional level. Kudos to you, Mason, on your focus and drive!
