Which would you attend if you were a graduating senior?
I'm pretty sure most people here would easily choose wrestling. I would expect that 99% of college wrestlers would choose to wrestle. When I was wrestling, I too would never even consider not wrestling.
However, as I get older and put things into perspective, I think I would encourage a graduating senior to attend the graduation ceremony. There are so many tournaments and matches that they all run together after a few years pass. But, there is only one opportunity to be honored at a graduation ceremony for years of hard work in the classroom. That memory will last forever.
Wrestling should be a very high priority for any wrestler, but it should never be the highest priority.
