Most Insane Fathers

Every year there is the instance where when a kid is wrestling; I find it more entertaining to watch the parent in the stands, than the actual match. In years past it has been Mr. Engwall. Good guy, just happens to be a lunatic while his kid is wrestling. At the state meet, when Marty would be on, he would be pacing the walkways coaching from about 200 feet away and it was hilarious. Who are some more crazy parents that are at times more interesting that the match themselves? (Mother tales welcome too)

I don't know how many remember, but Ian Darr who wrestled heavyweight (5th last year, 2nd the year before) had a dad who would get really intense. He is a very large man and when he gets up and starts screaming, that whole section of the crowd gets a little nervous.

Another one I remember was when Benefiel was wrestling Pretto in the semis last year, Mr. Pretto was causing a rucus pleading for stalling calls against Benefiel when Pretto was holding on for dear life; this was very funny.

GREAT TOPIC! I think that Mr. Larsen (Elias' dad- Bro. Rice) got pretty upset after the finals at CCL last year. Elias got screwed in the finals and I think his dad threw a cooler. Very shortly after the DLS coaches were escourting him out of the facilities. To tell you the truth, I really could not blame him.

How about brothers. When Brian Martin lost at state last year, his brother was going insane at the ref at the score table (rightfully so, he got screwed).

Yes, rightfully so; that was the worst officiating I have EVER seen
