    Great article Mark. Nice to be able to mention your fellow Bobcat, Andy Daniels. He's probably one of the most unlikely of NCAA champions coming in unseeded and knocking off 2 seed Gene Mills 15-7 in the semi and following that up with a fall in :30 of one seed John Azevedo.

    Dear Friends,

    I could use some of your help with one element of the story: My state-by-state list of first black HS state champs. As you can see, I found results for only four states... and one of the pioneers -- Pezavan Whatley of Tennessee -- I discovered only because he later became pro rassler Pistol Pez Whatley! ;-)

    If you know who the first African-American state champ was in your state, please post it here... or email me at I'd like the list to be more complete.

    Thanks in advance for your help,
