My father coached wrestling at Dieruff H.S. in the 1960's and early 1970's. For the past year, I've been working on a project to research how high school wrestling began in grew in the Lehigh Valley. I learned about the great coaches, wrestlers and teams of the 1950's and 1960's and the stories of the early pioneers who helped set the foundation for the strong wrestling legacy in the Lehigh Valley. My efforts have culminated in launching a website to tell their story - Lehigh Valley Wrestling History.
I wanted to contact you as you are very active in the wrestling community and I've been a long-time reader of your PIAA Wrestling History Book. I wanted to see if you would be kind enough to share this with others who follow high school wrestling. My hope is to reach others who follow the sport and who coached or wrestled during those early times or whose family members told them stories of their wrestling days. My goal is to have a dynamic, collaborative website where I could add to the content and give credit to those who have provided it.
