  • COLUMN: No sport like wrestling

    My mother has been nagging me to write something.

    But that’s not why I decided to do it.

    I’ve been inspired by a book by Nolan Zavoral entitled “A Season On The Mat.” The book takes you into the 1996-97 season of Dan Gable and his Iowa Hawkeyes wrestling team.

    I just finished my first year of coaching middle school wrestling with Cody Gibbons.
