Shortly after wrapping up his portraits at last month's VYPE photo shoot at the Paradigm Wrestling Club, Katy senior Daniel Manibog walked over to a group of kids.

Manibog knew the club program's coach from training during the summer. Unsolicited, Manibog, a two-time Class 6A state wrestling champion and Oklahoma State signee, chatted with the kids, took pictures and offered advice on how one day they could get where he is.

"There's this saying that goes, 'Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard,'" Manibog said.

"That's what I live by. I was never the most talented, so I had to work hard for everything. I tell them to keep on working and you can get anywhere."

Manibog is being humble. He is a strong talent. He is quick. He has nimble footwork. His "single-leg" takedown move is devastating and once a foe succumbs to it, they're done.
