Brian Realbuto gets nod at 152 for Team USA; Max Askren selected as Coach!
For the amateur wrestling junkie, it doesn’t get much better than this weekend! Two amazing events take place on Sunday…The NY vs. NJ Charity Challenge (article tomorrow) and The Dapper Dan Wrestling Classic!
Held at the Fitzgerald Fieldhouse on the University of Pittsburgh campus, the Dapper Dan is an annual event which pits a USA All-Star Team against a PA All-Star Team. All proceeds go to selected Dapper Dan charities. Preceding the main event, a match is wrestled between an all-star team from western PA (WPIAL) and a team from a particular state. At this year’s event, the WPIAL will take on Team Maryland.
Representing Team USA at 152 pounds will be Brian Realbuto of Somers HS (Section 1). Brian, a 3X NYS Champion, will be taking his talents to Cornell University in the fall. The Honorary Coach for Team USA is Max Askren. Askren, a 3X NCAA D1 All-American and 2010 National Champion from the University of Missouri, is an assistant coach for Somers. Good luck Brian and Max!
