Wrestler (Sophomore Year at MIT) Here I am at age 18 (Feb. 24, 1962) as the captain of the MIT varsity wrestling team, after I had just been pinned by Matt J. Sanzone of Springfield College ('63), who was that year's (1962) New England unlimited class champion. Matt went on to be a teacher and wrestling coach on Long Island and is now principal of Genet Middle School, East Greenbush, New York.
