Practice was held at Navy Pier Gym (before they turned it into wally world) Northwestern's Anderson Hall and Harper College in Palatine. Today we have USA wrestling which was once known as the United States Wrestling Federation. The first championship was in 1969 and this was started up in part by Terry McCann and Myron Roderick. I hope this helps you understand why Terry is one of the great coaches from Illinois.
Thank you for correcting me, I didn't know any of that. After reading it, I completely agree.
