Competition bio: State Champ at HWT at El Camino College after which I wrestled two years at Oklahoma State at HWT for Tommy Chesbro. 2X-All American, placing 6th twice and a Big 8 Champ. Took a number of seconds and thirds at the AAU’s, USWF, and USA Wrestling championships. Took second at Tbilisi and won the Pan American Championships at 90Kg. I also won the Veterans a few times and 3rd at the World Veterans. Presently on the board for Beat the Streets – LA and a member of the LA28 Wrestling Committee.
I find any research that is associated with the sport of wrestling fascinating and informative.
