A wrestler’s long journey to defeat poverty and educational underachievement to become a teacher, wrestling coach, school principal, and assistant superintendent across the country. Albert Sye stood up, escaped, and double-leg tackled poverty as well as educational underachievement to make a difference in the lives of many young people...
The “REVERSAL” is Albert Sye’s inspirational story about going the distance the hard way and doubling down to earn three college degrees and eventual positions as a teacher, coach, principal, and assistant superintendent lending his hard-earned wisdom to students and athletes. This is a story about a country boy from rural South Jersey who fought hard to overcome poverty and low academic standing by reversing his life’s circumstances.
After earning his college degree, he became a social studies teacher, head wrestling coach, and school administrator. He spent over three decades reversing lives of many other young men throughout the country. With a few good people in your life, it’s amazing what a student can accomplish many times over against all odds. Sye said, “I wanted to be Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, and Muhammad Ali, but I soon learned that you can only replicate their work ethic, not their glory.”
This book is dedicated to his mother, Josephine Marie Sye.
