September Wrestler of the Month, Daniel Sandblade!
Each month, BTSL will recognize wrestlers as our “Wrestler of the Month”. The September WOTM is Daniel Sandblade!
Daniel is in 4th grade and started wrestling a month ago when his Dad, who has a background in judo, recommended him to try wrestling as it involves some of the same concepts as judo. Daniel enjoys the strategical aspect of wrestling and is looking forward to learning more technique and perfecting his sprawl. Daniel enjoys riding his bike, building metal models, literature class, and playing chess. His favorite food is bibimbap, a Korean rice dish.
Daniel was chosen as the WOTM due to his willingness to pay attention and learn, attending every practice so far, and brought his friend Van to try out wrestling the second practice of the season. Daniel has a bright future on and off the mat. Congratulations Daniel!
Beat the Streets cultivates youth development in underserved communities by encouraging a desire for excellence, respect, teamwork, leadership, integrity, and perseverance through the instruction of quality wrestling programs.
Every member of the BTSL staff is here for one reason, to help the kids we serve. We chose to use the sport of wrestling to accomplish this.
The sport of wrestling helps put into perspective how hard work and self-accountability can bring forth success in all aspects of life. Beat the Streets is ready to help our youth make a positive and lasting impact in Lancaster!
