I had the pleasure of meeting Mike Houston the founder of The Wrestling Insider. I had seen his site and Facebook Page for quite some time and wanted to see what he was all about. Mike is in it to help all types of wrestlers get the funds and competition they need. Mike was nice enough to write up a description of what he has going on and I encourage everyone to check it out. He has a great resource and community!
I started my closed group, The Wrestling Insider really as a response to the IOC recommendation to remove wrestling from the Olympic program. From there I created our web site www.truewrestlinginsider.com and realized it would make sense to have a public page to share our great web site content.
We support, promote and help grow wrestling in Folkstyle, freestyle, Greco-Roman and now Sand wrestling. We do this for both women and men and from youth to college age. One of my passions in what we do is sponsoring student wrestlers to National level camps and tournaments. In 2014 we sponsored 25 wrestlers at an average sponsorship of $500. As you can see this is a large financial expense that we take on. This year we have already helped three all girl youth teams compete in Mat Mayhem NUWAY National Duals. Our 14U girls were National Champs and our three Illinois teams were the only State that filled every weight–no forfeits. Due to my physical handicap I can no longer coach wrestling so sponsoring student wrestlers really fills that void I felt.
I look forward to working with Daryl Weber and help promote your web site to our 10,200 Team Members of The Wrestling Insider and place your web site on our site.
If any of your fans would like to help our student wrestler sponsorship program they can contribute to our crowd funding site at: www.gofundme.com/support-IGWT
Your fans can also follow us on our public fan page at: www.facebook.com/
And our closed group is by request only. I have many administrators that help me approve requests for membership, and we do a quick background check on every single request to join. Your fans can access our online store and our great content on our web site at:Www.truewrestlinginsider.com
We also have our newly designed T-shirts and other apparel on our site for purchase. 100% of our profit goes to our student wrestlers in our sponsorship program.
Yours through wrestling,
Mike Houston, Manager
