Mark Rappo: The Art of War
By Mark Rappo
Special to the Daily Pennsylvanian
As a fifth-year senior at Penn, I have always felt that the wrestling team misunderstood to a certain extent. Not many people have been inside a wrestling room, let alone No. 23 Penn’s exceedingly competitive Division I room.
Wrestlers are a different breed. We carry around battle scars and the mental anguish of every match we have ever lost. Wrestling is as intense and mentally demanding a sport as there is. It is the ultimate test of strength, flexibility, conditioning and character.
