Golden Gloves 2012

Posted on April 30, 2012 at 3:45 PM
 
March and April always mark our busiest time of the year. We have been working hard preparing FAFSA applications for college, getting transcripts sent and earning end of the year credits. The semester is near ending and we just finished our sixth and final week competing in the Indiana Golden Gloves tournament. Each week the guys had to fight their way to earn a spot in the finals.Our boys trained very hard leading up to the competition. We had seven guys that entered, six of them made it all the way to the finals.  Five of them made it all the way earning the title of Indiana Golden Gloves State Champions. Our Champions have worked hard in the class room and the gym.  The task of preparing for the state’s largest boxing tournament is one that is not to be taken lightly. For our guys, training started six weeks before the actual tournament.  We started each work out with “road work”, a three mile run at a swift pace. After roadwork, we went through a grueling plyometric workout. Then the boys get a quick sip of water and it’s on to bag and pad work. It is here that the guys fine tune their boxing mechanics and correct any inconsistencies in their technique. After an hour of bag and mitt work they do fifteen minutes of jumping rope to cool down and improve on foot work. During each practice we discuss in-depth, the rules and technicalities of USA Olympic Boxing.  Examples of what we go over are how to position your stance in the ring to allow all five judges maximum viewing.  Another example is, how to use USA Olympic Boxing Rules to outscore a boxer that is bigger, stronger and may have better technique than us.  After we go over the rules, the boys have open gym and free sparing sessions.
Each of the fighters had to maintain their fight weight for the entire six weeks of the tournament. In addition, they had to maintain their GPA, have perfect attendance and get in to no trouble at school or on the streets. This is a tough challenge for anyone.  Maintaining proper diet and hydration for twelve weeks was essential. No sodas or sweets! 
 
Our team made us proud and we were honored as they stepped up and said yes to a challenge that most would run from. They were always clean, well-mannered  and respectful. They conducted themselves in a manner that is worthy of the gospel and finished the tournament with excellence. I was also humbled to be awarded the Sarge Johnson Coach of the year award. 
I am most honored to introduce to you the following state champions.

And despite the demand for newer generation units, it is surprising that there are few promoters and developers interested in setting up of these units. According, to Tex.

The Submariner that I have was pre-owed when I purchased but it really was produced in that same year that it was bought and was in excellent condition.It will eventually put greater little dent inside your bank-account to order however you will always feel great inside the knowledge that this watch is a classic and is also almost sure to hold its value since it has done in the past.
