Since the 1983-1984 wrestling season we have had a J-Hawk schedule poster dedicated to our letterman and varsity team. This season we changed things up a bit and dedicated it to a very close friend of the program who passed away this past August. This years poster is dedicated to G. Wyatt Schultz. Wyatt was a long time supporter of our wrestling program and Jefferson athletics. Wyatt had a saying... "Let's Keep Wrestling on the Move." I hope he is looking down on us smiling knowing We Will "Keep Wrestling on the Move"
at Jefferson!
