    Default Jack Brisco - OK State champ/pro rassler - dead at 68

    It is being reported that Jack Brisco, a 1965 NCAA champ for Oklahoma State University who became a professional wrestling champ, died at age 68 Monday. Reports vary as to whether Brisco died during or sometime after open-heart surgery.

    Born Freddie Joe Brisco on September 21, 1941 in Blackwell, Oklahoma -- a true hotbed for wrestling in the Sooner State -- Brisco had a great amateur sports career that helped lead to fame and fortune in pro wrestling.

    Jack Brisco was a football star and three-time Oklahoma high school state wrestling champ at heavyweight (1958-1960) for Blackwell High. Brisco then headed to Oklahoma State, where he became a two-time Big 8 conference champ for the Cowboys at 191 lbs in 1964 and 1965. He was a two-time NCAA Division I All-American at 191. At the 1964 NCAAs, Brisco lost in the finals, 6-3, to Harry Houska of Ohio University. One year later, he won the national title at the 1965 NCAAs at the University of Wyoming by pinning Wisconsin's Dan Pernat at 6:32 in the 191 lb finals.
