This week we start with-

Lee Pritts- Asst. Hd Coach at Old Dominion. In that summer camps are around the corner, and its important to plan ahead, it's also important to remember the past. Recently we lost a great man, mentor to many and one of the finest coaches this sport has known. Coach Steve Martin's father is coaching Gods team now and with Lee we'll remember this silver haired wrestling guru.

Then we go in from the coast just a little in Virginia and visit with Cav's Head Coach Steve Garland. Steve has had some great progress and with his history and mentoring by Rob Koll and others he'll no doubt do well.
