Man in the Arena Scholarship
Someone who is heavily involved in a situation that requires courage, skill, or tenacity, as opposed to someone sitting on the sidelines and watching, is often referred to as "the man in the arena".
Hoggard Wrestling offers a $500 scholarship to a senior wrestler to put toward college tuition.
Wrestle on the Hoggard Wrestling team for a minimum of 3 years
Hold a 3.5 GPA or higher
Complete and submit to the Head Coach the scholarship application prior to March 1 (application form will be available in 2024)
The recipient will be announced at our annual end-of-season banquet.
Funds will be sent directly to the recipient's college of choice by the end of the school year.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
