    Cary by the Lake got a reaction from John Coctostan in Question about former Penn State wrestler   
    **** Regardless of his average wrestling career, he sounds like a real great character guy.  To me he is very believable and has all the guts in the world to try to do the right thing. I would imagine he and his family are being threatened by many in power positions.  America needs more people like him to step forward when corruption is rampant, regardless of how it may affect them in the future.  God Bless You.

    **** It is hard to comprehend.  Greg was so many things to so many people.  Any attempt to describe him will come up short.  I often recall the many times we played golf.  He was "real" in every way, no pretense, no excuses.  First and foremost I considered him a friend.  We have lost a great man.  Rest In Peace Friend.

    **** Ryan Crookham of Notre Dame Green Pond high school in PA, class of 2022 and #2 ranked overall wrestler of the class has committed to Lehigh University.  He is a 2X state champion.  He will be a junior this season and has wrestled at 126 last year.  This is a monster pick up.  Here is the article. https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/highschoolsports/2020/08/notre-dames-crookham-commits-to-lehigh-to-wrestle.html?outputType=amp

    **** I along with my son and 2 other staunch Lehigh fans, went to the EIWAs at Stabler arena on March 6 & 7, just a few days before the first lock downs.  Attendance was between 2,500 and 3,000 for each session.  I have not had any health problems since, nor am I aware of anyone else who attended having any health issues, (I keep in touch with many wrestling fans).  There must have been Covid 19 germs flying around at that tournament, being the location is in Very Eastern PA and Zero Precautions were taken.  Many attendees were from New York, New Jersey, PA, Maryland and other states. We also attended a very crowded local brew pub between sessions.  So in answer to the question, Yes, I would attend.  We have been locked down too long already. The Lock Down, although well meaning, has severely damaged both our economy and the mental well being of our citizens.  Open things up now!  There may be subsequent waves of the virus which will result in more sickness, but Herd Immunity is the only real way to deal with the situation.

    Cary by the Lake reacted to lurk_nowitzki in Does the uncertainty lead to more redshirting?   
    I was kinda thinking the opposite, to be honest. With the future of college wrestling potentially in jeopardy due to the financial ramifications of covid, particularly for mid-majors, I was thinking there would be far less redshirts this year and everyone would want to compete while they can.

    Yes and keep it Folkstyle,
    It might need to be a short season next year.Might be difficult to move the date of nationals next year (Although the fact that there is only one pro team n Scotttrade or whatever it is called>next year)

    I'll be blunt...there isn't likely to be a wrestling season until there's a vaccine. Most likely, there won't be any sports until there's a vaccine, but if things are opened up on a sport-by-sport basis, wrestling is probably going to be the very last sport to be allowed, due to the nature of it and the relative lack of protective equipment.

    Cary by the Lake got a reaction from jross in Mark Hall Twister Study (Powerful Pinning Technique)   
    **** In the Lehigh Valley of PA, this has always been called The Cement Job.  The key is getting the Chin.  There are many variations (Flying Cement Job,  Concrete Special and others).  The origins as far as I was told a long time ago, originally came from Wade Schalles when he was at Clarion.  Wade developed it and Don Rohn learned it there and brought it back to the Lehigh Valley when he started coaching at Hazleton then Northampton.  Pretty soon every Lehigh Valley school (Northampton, Nazareth, Easton, Parkland and others) were using it.  I was at a Lehigh practice one day when Coach Tom Hutchinson had Tommy Rohn (Don's son) put on a clinic for the rest of the team.  There is a famous video of Rob Rohn of Lehigh, pinning Josh Lambrecht of Oklahoma in the NCAA Finals, after losing something like 14-2 with less than 2 minutes to go, (See attached
    link).

    **** I remember another time when I went to a Lehigh practice, and instead of practice, the room was being used by visiting high school teams from WVA, SC and NY, who were in town to wrestle (Easton, Nazareth and Northampton), in what was named I think The Lehigh Valley Challenge Duals, (I may be wrong about the actual name).  Top schools from other states would come in and take on the LV best.  While there, I remember one of the area wrestling guys came up to the coach from SC and asked:" Are you ready for the Cement Job?"  The coach said "I think we've got it covered."  Well that night one by one the teams from the other states got shellacked 62-3, 59-6, 69-0, or similar scores as they learned first hand what Lehigh Valley Wrestling was all about.
    I also remember while I was working in the NE PA area, (while working for Allied Signal Aerospace), around 1987 or so, The PA State Regionals, were coming up and some of my Co-Workers were discussing how the local boys would take care of the District 11 boys.  Some of their wrestlers had gaudy records like 29-0, 31-1 and 31-2 and were seeded 1st in the Regionals.  The D 11 boys had records of 26-5, 25-4, 27-6 or such, as hardly anyone was undefeated because they all traded wins against each other.  Well, the Regionals came and went and one by one the local District Champs and Runner Ups were beaten (some very badly), by D11 wrestlers (with lower seeds) with lesser records.  The locals just could not understand how that happened.  I just commented: "D11 wrestling is a whole different animal and very few survive unbeaten".  True Story.
