  • All business, no show

    Mark Twain once said “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” For junior wrestler Stiles Metcalf, the size of the fight has rarely been an issue.

    At 5-6 120 pounds, Metcalf takes a different approach to his matches than the typical wrestler. Most all wrestlers can be seen warming up anxiously, running around, jumping up and down and sometimes slapping themselves in the legs or hips. Not so for the unassuming Metcalf who approaches every match with a business-like attitude.
