Wrestling On The Hard Road - 1
July 1, 2017
The beginning of it all.

My journey with wrestling on the hard road began when my mom was diagnosed with leukemia. Mom passed in 1961 changing my life forever. Mom was diagnosed in 1957 and given six months. She fought and wrestled with pain, sickness, for four years finally passing in 1961.

I had been introduced to the sport of wrestling thanks to a program by my elementary gym teacher Pooch Puchany. He was a huge factor in my interest in the sport. His high school wrestlers would canvass the neighborhood for kids interested in joining his after school program. They would walk us to the gym and then home again after the practice. I was six years old at the time and have loved the sport ever since. Wrestling through high school and some on base programs in the Marine Corps and for a brief stint in college. Coaching Wrestling for 41 years culminating with a Washington State Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame induction in 2012.

The sport of wrestling enabled me to survive and in most cases succeed in the struggles I have faced in my 68 years of Life.
