    Default Isn't Escobedo from the same college as Dubuque?

    If so, that is pretty impressive for a school that is not known for too many National champs to produce 125 pound champions so often.

    Henson got Donahoe a victory and then didn't he leave to coach the Novachkov's?

    So Mena was the first recipient of "the slap"? Hilarious. And Gable liked it so much he kept on doing it.

    Ironic that Mena never won the title himself, although he was obviously in the mix every year he wrestled (4 x AA).
