Today’s photo is from Len Rockey.

It features the 1962 undefeated State High wrestling team. Rockey writes: “This team added to the five previous undefeated seasons, achieving 64 straight wins. It was the experience with this team and coach Homer Barr that influenced my desire to coach. It was an honor to teach and coach in the high school where I wrestled.”
