Athletes often say they strive to be their best by working hard, preparing and not letting there be any distractions.

Sometimes athletes will credit God. An Iowa wrestler had high praise in his mullet.

After beating T.J. Dudley of Nebraska in the Big Ten wrestling championships on Sunday, Iowa’s Sammy Brooks had high praise for his mullet.

“You can’t grow a great mullet in a day; you can’t win a Big Ten title in a day,” Brooks said.
