" elias johnson "what was the rock bottom for you and have you hit rock bottom? andrew long "rock bottom is when you decide to stop digging, you know? i mean when you're the one digging you can stop, but for me it was like dragging my family through a lot of the consquences that were of my own doing, you know i made these choices and now my family has to be the recipient of that..." elias johnson did that hurt the most and you saw how your parents were hurt by your decisions? andrew long "yeah. i'd say just having to explain, this is what i did, again, i don't want you to be mad at me, i don't want you to think of me as a failure, or something." nat - grandview wrestling room as long worked to escape from his bottom in life - one of the first to extend a helping hand as he completed couselling was grandview head wrestling coach, nick mitchell nick mitchell - grand view head wrestling coach i just started having some conversations

down and talk with andrew and that was the best thing we cold have done becuase it gave everybody a better sense as to who he was, the same thing i was looking for seeing where he was in his life big ting that anybody who talks to him sees and can be comforatble with the red flags disappear." andrew long "as grace is sufficient i stand on alot of scriptures. if i have questions with ethical decisions or moral decision or whats right and whats wrong i'll just read that and discover the truth in there and that keeps me on the straight and arrow." after becoming the forst viking wrestler to ever win a midlands championship, andrew continues working to staff off his back on the mat, and more importantly- in life scott casber - host of takedown wrestling the story of wrestling is of second chances. there are so few undefeateds out there and so few gold medalists, that means everybody else has

lets face it the sport embraces second third and fourth and he is getting a second chance and some would say a third chance." steve foster - close family friend life is about getting restarted becuase life will put you on your back sometimes, it will put you on your back and that's what's great about the sport of wrestling is it teaches you to get off your back. andrew long "god's got the show now" "

there's no doubt andrew is a phenomanal wrestler - currently ranked number 1 at 149 lbs. but what would happen if someone without his talent, but still had a wrap sheet and wated to attend grand view as a student? university president, kent henning sent us this statement... "safety for the grand view community is a primary concern. whenever we become aware of any student (future or present) who has a current or prior criminal record..." "...we assess the case on an individual basis to determine if that individual poses any danger to the university community. andrew was treated no differently from any other student, athlete or not."
