A special thank you from New Breed wrestling coach Mario Chagolla

I am deeply honored to receive this award, but wish to acknowledge that this programs' success is bigger than any one individual. It is made up of over 100 volunteer Arizona coaches and parents, who unselfishly donate towards the overall success of Weekend Wars. They have been the driving force and inspiration behind many hours of playing mentor, disciplinarian and sympathetic supporter, donating their time and energy to help other in need. They are determined, highly motivated and action-oriented volunteers.
