Pat Pecora

Post by dadw/2sons » March 29th, 2020, 9:58 pm

I'm stuck at home like everybody else and I was reading my new April magazine of Sports Illustrated. I came across a familiar face in the magazine, In the "Faces in the Crowd" section, was local person. Coach Pat Pecora is being honored for his great achievements as UPJ's wrestling coach. It talks about getting his 617th win, which is the most ever by a wrestling coach. It is neat to see someone local being recognized in a national publication. Kudos to Pat and the Mountain Cats wrestlers.

Yes, it is a well-deserved recognition. Thanks for posting, as I, and probably many more like me, don't read magazines anymore due to expense and the proliferation of electronic mass media.
It ain't over until it's over.
