Your Very Own Andre Morgan "Twist"...

I received a call tonight from Joe Cliffe, Illinois Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association Hall of Fame Chairman indicating that I am receiving on April 16, 2016 the IWCOA Illinois Wrestling Lifetime Achievement Award. He indicated to me that the selection committee felt I have been the most influential person in the state in promoting the sport the last two decades as a broadcaster and writer. For those not into wrestling this is a very prestigious honor and I am tremendously proud to be selected. I hope that each and everyone of you can attend the banquet in Countryside, IL that night to share with me. I will pass on more info as I get it.

Thank You

I was shocked and surprised when I received the call that I was receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. Thank you State of Illinois.

Wrestling is a great sport and some 25 years later I am still in awe of the great athletes and the dedication they put into getting their hand.
