As a freshman in high school, Casey Olson was small, but determined.

"I was 100 pounds soaking wet," Olson told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), "but I made varsity (wrestling)."

Olson's father, who went through a rough patch when Olson was in elementary school, had stabilized his life and had coached his son. Heading into his sophomore year, Olson wanted to improve, so his father did some extra drilling at the house, with the couch pushed aside in the living room.
