Speaking of off-season work ethic, Coach Mike Powell is in San Diego with some of the team training with the Vista wrestlers for a week of twice a day wrestling practices. Colin is there and working hard. The Vista wrestlers come to Oak Park in two weeks to train here.
Powell left for California from Oklahoma City where he got to watch Team Illinois win first in the Greco-Roman championship at Junior National Duals, beating Team Wisconsin 40-17. Team Illinois was helped of course by Sammy Brooks, our own OPRFHS wrestler and a frequent visitor to our kitchen.
The young men this summer are working hard as Coach Powell requires, and are planning to win in Bloomington next spring.
