Me and a buddy walk up to the display case and there is a big picture of Bruce Baumgartner with his olympic gold medal in the case. Turns out he was coaching Pleasant that year! (for those of you who dont know, thats like having Michael Jordan as your HS basketball coach) I just thought to myself, wow, these guys probally dont even know how lucky they are. 50% of the people at the wrestling tourney dident even give a shit about watching the wrestling, they just wanted to stare at Bruce.
Yeah thats pretty bad ass for that school.
