If you can't get tickets to a Patriots game, why not do the next best thing, hang out in the Stadium.

I agree that Frank Smith was an excellent coach. I had the pleasure of having him as a coach. He was just a wealth of knowledge on technique. Maybe it was the fact he grew up in PA and wrestled at Brown, who knows. Congrats him and all the others that are finally being inducted. Coach Viglione, most know what kind of program he built up in Billerica. I just htought I would put my 2 cents in on the topic.

Sorry, just getting used to the website. After leaving Meramac I went on to wreslte on scholarship for Mizzou and was the Team Captain for two years. After moving to Londonderry, New Hampshire in 2000. I coached as the Middle School Wrestling Coach for Londonderry one season and took Chris and Cody Rideout to State for their first time and then to Virginia Beach to wreslte for some big tournament there. I am currently not coaching anywhere.

Just a few weeks left - get your tickets - see the info. above to order tickets (in the first entry on the thread) - Robert Kraft as speaker and a great catered dinner planned - our chance as a wrestling community to come together - this will also, in part, raise funds to help the HOF organization continue to promote the sport for our mass boys - others from out of state are welcome as well - Coaches/Parents think about bringing your wrestlers to this event - Youth Coaches please think about attending... the Mass HOF is directly helping Youth Wrestling grow in Mass.
This is a great team builder/energizer event as well!

Hope all enjoy themselves tonight at the event.
Was hoping to make it there, but wife had to go out of town for work, and I own the kids. Not easy getting babysitters around here.

Congrats to the honorees

We should thank the Father for his blessing and exorcism of the Lowell bus. There were no injuries or mishaps although probably a few tired eyes today including yours truly... Time for a nap:)

Sorry about that one Aaron, but I'm throwing Mr. Biondolillo under the bus on that one - he made that statement at the last HOF Committee Meeting
What a great night, huh!
So many old and young wrestlers together in our little community - fun night (although the Sox could have been on in the in-betweens)
Big Tournout as well, I was surprised at how many were there (I think about 350 - Very good crowd).
