    Whizzer-Origin of name?

    He's out in Arizona I believe. Came out this way recently, I think. Coach Turner wasn't aware of Leeman naming it as he recalls knowing the name Whizzer while in HS starting in '53 prior to going to Lehigh.

    Ohio State- Nebraska

    I never knew that (and I've known him since mid-grade school). I now see some references but ones that look more like either a middle name or that were quoted as in a nickname.

    Whizzer-Origin of name?

    A Japanese Whizzer (usually called by Gilman's form of the phrase) is a form of arm throw and not a defensive maneuver.

    Whizzer-Origin of name?

    I've never heard of either of these explanations but they're pretty interesting. And the railroad thing could lend credence to the Lehigh connection. Lehigh's founder was a railroad guy and when Leeman came to Lehigh the rails were still a big thing in the Valley.

    I believe he grew significantly either late in HS early college.

    NCAA D1 champs with worst HS results

    It was something we talked about around here some but I obviously misunderstood. And I even looked there and missed that. Ctrl-F!

    I wasn't really saying that any in particular were non-religious but perhaps I should have said 'religiously' named.

    National Prep Wrestling...?? Blair,Wyoming,Malvern

    I was trying to count actual Prep schools rather than Parochial schools in the ones I mentioned specifically. It looks like Md, Va and Tx have what could be parochial rather than private schools but not sure. It looks like NE, NY, NJ are pretty much only privates. Generally a The or School (without High before it) indicate a private even if religious based. I remember when Strobel came to Lehigh and we talked about Preps. He said there were hardly any on the left coast.

    National Prep Wrestling...?? Blair,Wyoming,Malvern

    That's probably correct. And most of them are still on the east coast. We get about 125 with kids that qualify. There are approximately 300 prep schools in the opc under Nat Preps. state count(distinct orgname) CT 24 DC 9 GA 1 IL 1 MA 34 MD 41 ME 1 NC 25 NH 4 NJ 6 NY 13 OH 1 OK 1 PA 21 RI 3 SC 1 TN 2 TX 45 VA 38 WV 1 Obviously there are others from other states but most of them wrestle in their state association. There are a number of eastern prep schools that also compete with the publics. In Florida, Lake Highland Prep competes with the Publics. They have made requests to compete with the Preps. In NJ Delbarton, St Peter's, CBA, Rutgers Prep, Pingry, Seton Hall, Don Bosco, St Augustine all compete with the publics. Probably most that compete Preps are live in and most that don't are day schools but not sure. Again, we have virtually no request for schools from other states. Mainly the ones we have gotten of late are newer and seem athletically based.

    There aren't a ton of prep schools out of the East. We almost never get requests from the other time zones outside of Texas.
