Brett "Shrek" Grelle

I know I haven't written in a while but life has just been beyond busy. 

I have been wanting to share this with everyone because it is just so awesome to me. I have a new hero! It is on of my brothers Brett. He has so much will power and strength if I was blessed with half of that I would be set for life. He has always been a hard worker and has always sought out excellence. But just recently he has done something that has just blown me away. 
A few months a go he joined the wrestling team, wrestling at 215. This was right after football where he was weighing in at 225. His football coaches said wrestling would be a good help for his reaction time. So he joined the team. He was surprisingly really good. But Brett made the choice to wrestle 189. People probably thought yeah right, maybe next year Brett. But he was determined!
I left home Jan 7th to head back to school and just the day before he weighed 215 and wrestled the heavyweight (weighing in +215) from the Seckman team, and TOTALLY dominated, btw. 
About 2 1/2 to 3 weeks later Brett went to school on the day of a meet and weighed in .4 over. So what's so significant about this day and that weight? Wrestlers always come in weighing heavy... Well Brett was .4 over for the 189 category. In just that short amount of time Brett lost a total of 36 pounds. 
The awesomeness of this accomplishment speaks for it self. It really spoke to me and really made me question how strong my desire to accomplish my goals are. 
If a 15 year old, freshman in high school can make a goal, stick to it, achieve it, and dominate at this level why can't everyone else achieve the goals they have set for themselves? 

I love my Brother! He's my hero!
