Hey, I hate to be 'that guy', but keep with it man. I started when I was a sophomore - a year late - had a 1-6 record at 215 weighing 190, was routinely beaten by our JV 140 (yup) and thought I'd never be anything. Now I'm a state champ at 189 with a 40-3 record this year. And I'm not special that way - it's tons of fun once you get going with it, it just requires some work and some time. If you want.
...Yeah I am that guy.
On topic, it sounds like your conditioning and footwork should be improving nicely - I love agility work, ladders and stuff. Keep up the good work.
