Pat Deluca (Father and Coach) Comments:

The receipts are clear. We've witnessed the unwavering focus, mental toughness, and hard work of these two young wrestlers. At one point in Leo's development, his father mentioned he would consistently hit 400 shots on the Snap and Shoot during each training session. Additionally, despite a leg injury early in his journey, Gabe and his father found innovative ways to train with our equipment.

Adams Athletics extends heartfelt gratitude to these athletes for allowing us to be a part of their inspiring journey and for sharing their training and success with us. As they've dominated the sport, we understand that their legacy will inspire the next generation of wrestlers across the country.

Our commitment as a company is to support your path to success. While you train relentlessly for your goals, we stand ready to provide the tools that others have found indispensable in their journey on and off the mat, just as Gabe and Leo have demonstrated.

All in all, Adams Athletics would like to know:
