  1. Wow! At 26, this death was way too soon! (Details of what happen to him was not available.) https://www.wfmz.com/_homepage_top_stories/former-pen-argyl-hs-wrestling-football-standout-racciato-dies-at-age-26/article_c164ecc2-47eb-11eb-8b88-b3c31a6c6671.html I remembered him during his HS wrestling days @ Pen Argyl. Definitely a hard nosed wrestler... kind of reminded me a little like Lehigh's Mike Frick ! Really thought that he would 've really took off @ Pitt (possible AA)... won an ACC championship his soph year. Bounced around 141-149... thought 141 would of been (imho) a better fit for his size, but perhaps the cut was a bit too much. Sad happening for his family on Christmas Day, my condolences. D3
  2. Speculation on the possible line up? Sure! 125: Brandon Paetzell... looking to take the abbreviated EIWA's and AA ( wayyyyy over due.) 133: Nick Farro off to post wrestling fortunes? Leaning Jaret Lane's way (though, others may feel differently), he looked good in a dual. 141: Perhaps, Dan Moran here, though, he'll have some tough competition here to get through. 149: Jimmy Hoffman back again. (Luke Karam's final year. Former EIWA 3rd placer @ 141, make a final push?) 157: On the surface, Josh Humphreys (If he's not taking a RS)... IF he does, looking to see last years 165'er Brian Meyer make a drop for better results (for Brian, that is. ;-) ). 165: Edmond Ruth pops into the scene here? Fuzzy look at this weight otherwise. (Other than Brian Meyer back here IF Humphreys does appear @ 157, sans RS.) 174 & 184; Really hazy w/ my crystal ball here... BIG gap w/Jordan Kutler graduating. 197: Jake Jakobsen is back for his final year... big push for the EIWA/AA prize? 285: With Jordan Wood taking an Oly shirt... only three appear on the roster. With two of the three are frosh, appears Victor Lacombe has the inside track. This is just yours truly opinion... actual results may differ... objects closer than they appear. ;-P D3
  3. For whatever reason, I guess Legger was already taken (hence, Cary by the Lake, soon to be former place of residence.) Perhaps, Legger pt.2? Legger II, Legger deux? You may certainly incorporate Legger in there somewhere. Glad to hear you're coming back north of the Mason/Dixon line (AND in NE PA?) (Hey, I'll ring you up, during the holidays... we'll catch up! :-D ) D3
  4. Wrestling related , eh? It appears this is quickly turning into a dumpster fire... keep this political football fumbling along and I sense this topic is gonna get locked out PDQ. (sigh... ) D3

  6. I remembered, long ago, when I started to surf the web (back then w/dial-up modems... always trying to get a faster line.) My first foray into wrestling message boards was the AOL message wrestling boards. Soon after, I stumbled onto the Wrestling Report fora. When I saw that there was a dedicated spot there for EIWA/LEHIGH Wrestling, I was hooked for the long term! Met up w/ some "interesting" characters and also, what eventually became, VERY good people that we all occasionally got together at some duals and the EIWA's. (We're still in contact now. ;-) ) WR.com was good while it last. cheers! D3
  7. I was VERY sadden of Coach's passing. (VERY surprised on how sudden it was as well.) imho, he made most young men that he coached, BETTER PEOPLE after his influence. We will surely miss him at the matches at Grace Hall. Things will be a bit different, with Greg gone. :-( D3
  8. This is My story that I remember like it was yesterday... back in my junior year Morristown HS (NJ) in January 1973. Wrestling @ 115 lbs, a dual at home against Columbia HS. Warming up during the 106 lbs bout, I saw my opponent stalking behind the Columbia bench staring me down, giving me the stink-eye and all. He was a senior (remembered his name as well ), named Russell Crockett (really!) Wound up qualifying for the regions later on in the season, after coming in 2nd in his district. So, my match comes up with him. I jogged over to the mat center with the ref. Crockett, shot out of a cannon, flies right to the center and smacks his face two or three times and stares at me like he would rip me open. Smacked his face, two or three times eh? All I could remember, was an old aftershave commercial (Mennen Skin Bracer?), upon seeing that. I replied, " Thanks, I needed that." Apparently, he failed to see the humor in that. (dunno why... ) In the next 30 second after the refs whistle, he did freight trained me w/ a TD and put me on the back for a quick 2 NF. Fortunately, I recovered quickly enough to pull out a relatively comfortable 9-6 win after the dust settled out. Amazing... I left the witty quips to myself after that! ;-P David D. Day aka D3 for LU
  9. I'll say... yes, he's ranked #2 @132 (FLO '20-'21 HS rankings),) behind Nic Bouzakis of Wyoming Seminary (who's a beast and a half himself! B>O. ) P4P... he's ranked 8th. Outstanding pickup by LEHIGH. D3
  10. From buckshot1969: MyMar said that Taylor would be cautious because he's the world champ. He might have miscalculated on that one. ;-D D3
  11. Wait... Dake / Chamizo discussion here, right? Just curious how Dake will approach this match... should be interesting. Thoughts , anyone? D3
  12. Amazin'... 50 mins later, wrestling. D3
  13. Annoying club/techno music is playing... can't they play any decent music? (jus sayin'.) D3
  14. Blurb on the screen w/ the view of the mat says wrestling will resume @ 9pm. D3
  15. Got the view of the mat... D3
