  2. live too! the announcers were incredible, Shel Siegel and Larry Sheridan. Larry Sheridan has been around EIWA wrestling for 86 years -- his entire lifetime. The son of Billy Sheridan, Lehigh's iconic Hall of Fame wrestling coach, was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where he still resides. As a teen he wrestled for Bethlehem High School (now Liberty High School) and for Mercersburg Academy, winning the National Prep School title at 154 pounds in 1950. He wrestled briefly for Lehigh University, but had to curtail competing in the sport as a sophomore due to repeated knee injuries. Shortly after his graduation from Lehigh, Sheridan became a wrestling official, a position that he excelled at for nearly 20 years. In 1968 he began announcing wrestling matches for Channel 39 in the Lehigh Valley along with EIWA Hall of Famer, Shel Siegel. The twosome covered all Lehigh meets, the EIWA finals, the PIAA finals, several East-West duals and several Russia vs USA matches. He retired from wrestling announcing for Channel 39 in 1994.
  3. growing up in the area, I fondly recall the days of Lehigh's home matches being on PBS 39, none better than Darryl Burley!
  4. I expect a similar performance to Caldwell's a few weeks back. Jenkins will wrestle just to keep his mat skills fresh for MMA.
  5. similar to bringing Caldwell back to FS after many years away. Bubbas hasn't wrestled a FS match in years either. I expect a similar dud as the Caldwell gimick.
  6. yes, Rulon is dangerously big! but what a true ambassador for the sport of wrestling. Love to see him touching these young athletes' lives!
  7. sounds to me like Nickal is making his transition to MMA reading some reports this summer. Perhaps he makes 1 serious attempt at the Olympics and that's the last we see from him.
  8. the name calling and belittling of fellow posters is nauseating. I hope all of you feel better about yourselves.
  9. agree, pretty impressive breakdown! I can honestly say i've never seen this technique taught. Great technique for a left hander or for any wrestler adept at shooting with both hands.
  10. Dake/Burroughs will be a war, again. But after seeing Chamizo almost beat Dake, he almost scored in the final seconds, I'm taking JB.
  11. Martin couldn't even get ready for the whistle.
  12. let's be honest Martin is not ranked #8 in the world.
  13. Martin had no answer for DT's relentless leg attacks.
  14. Caldwell really didn't have much to offer after an 8 yr hiatus.
  15. there's really no one to provide an answer.
  16. this preview **** was on all week already, I tuned in to see some wrestling not another preview.
  17. he forgot? that's crazy. Yozzo's inside trip was about as good as you'll ever see.
  18. BraunMan was perhaps the biggest dope ever on these boards. don't miss him. nor LI Marty but yes when you lose true wrestling minds on a great mat forum such as this, you feel the void. so was Big an actual decent wrestler?
  19. just read the article, it just says he was a college wrestler, nothing about Nationals or that he was a champ. The wrestling community helped him a great deal as well.... My colleagues were helping me, too: checking in, texting, telling me what to do and what to expect. When I got in a panicky mood, I would reach out to my friends and see what they thought I should do. And my wrestling community: I am 26 years out of college, but I was getting texts from old coaches and teammates and current wrestlers. These guys are tough, tough as nails, and it helped me. When I was wrestling and I was tired and my opponent was strong, and I would say to myself, “Am I going to roll over and take this or am I going to get up and do something about it?” I channeled that. After the wrestlers texted me, I would get up and go walk in the yard. I walked as fast as I could, which was pretty slow, and I tried to take a breath and hold it 10 seconds and maybe expand my lungs. No matter how bad I felt the whole time, I made sure I got out of bed, I put on a mask, and I went out into my yard. I walked around the yard five times. I did not let my lungs get stagnant. By that point I had figured out other strategies too. For example, if you are going to lie down, you have to lie in a prone position, on your chest. It makes it easier to breathe.
  20. he coached a team that won AAU''s 4 years in a row.
  21. He was a bodyguard for the Shah . .and I'm sure a darn good one Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk
