Chucks counter technique with conditioning

November 24, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy wrestling team will be the first to admit that it isn't as technically-sound as District IX Class AAA rivals Clearfield and DuBois.

As the Chucks are a few days into their first week of 2010-2011 preseason, the words of Dan Gable are often spoken by head coach Eric Eddy and assistant coach Buddy Young, who have been coaching Punxsy wrestling for nine years now.

While an eighth-grader at Brookville Junior-Senior High School, Thomas said she experienced the serious repercussions of falling to peer pressure first hand. The 2007 graduate decided to leave a high school football game, against her better judgment, to join friends for a car ride.
