    I did note that Falck wasn't on the level of the rest, but seeing as how most of the rest are NCAA and US National champs, and a few olympic medalists as well, you can still be a darn good wrestler without being on the level of a Randy Lewis.

    FWIW Jesse Whitmer was a 118 pounder.

    Yea I even thought of Greg Elinsky, PSU's 1st 4x AA but I thought of the Coaches who won Championships (Speidel & Sanderson) the 1st PSU 2x Champ (Matter) & his Coach & the guy to really put PSU there as consistent National program, Bill KoLL & World Team member & 2x Champ Kerry McCoy. What MATTERS most? Team Championships & then individual champs. WHo has won them? TEAM: Speidel & Sanderson. You could also throw Jeff Prescott out there & even Lorenzo & Fritz.

    In today's world Whittmer would have been a 25 lber so I would lump him in with them.

    Jim Martin is one of my all-time favorite PSU wrestlers. He was only NCAA champ once (should have repeated his senior year, but lost on a tough criteria decision), but I really liked his style and his character. His one championship was won despite 2 broken ribs as I recall. He could well have won another championship or two if it hadn't been for a certain Ricky Bonomo. Seeing Martin's name just made me want to wax nostalgic a little bit!
