Thread: RIP Joe Henning

  1. #1

    Default RIP Joe Henning

    Another multitime State Champion has died at the age of 27.
    Joe Henning of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, a 3 x Wisconsin State Champion was hit by a train in DeKalb, Ill(he wrestled in college at NIU) on Friday nite. His Freshman year, he beat a guy named Ben Askren for a title...I think that it was at 119 if my memory serves me. He won again as a soph, took 3rd as a junior and was 39-0 as a Senior. He is Sconny AA Craig Henning's older brother.
    How depressing!!

    Another article on it, with more details on the incident itself. Sounds like alcohol was a factor:
