It was likely about 1963, or so. We (SIU-Carbondale) were on an extended road trip. Our stops included Stillwater. Our ultimate destination was the Midlands Open tourney up in Chi-town.

Well, I won that Midlands at 191. Wrestled a real good kid in the finals. Ron Paar of Wisconsin in the semi's.

However, I think my bout with you is what got me ready for some of those other guys. The two of us wrestled an 'exhibition' 9 minute bout prior to the SIU/OSU dual meet in Stillwater. Exhibition because (I think) neither of us was eligible just yet.

I had heard all about you. I loved the idea of wrestling you early in my college days. Funny how I should recall details of our bout.

We went into the 3rd period 1-1. I believe that was the final ? I had heard of your carry. I was thinking about it all through our bout. It was a good, fun time for me.

Thank you Jack, for the opportunity. It all helped me to get better.
