Like many of us, Vincent Barber has been affected by cancer; within the past few years the 2010 Highland graduate has lost an aunt and his grandmother to the disease. In an effort to do his part in finding a cure, Barber has joined a rapidly growing cause within the wrestling community.
Pin Cancer is an organization founded by Dan Tramontozzi, Jared Ferriera, and Will Livingston. Pin Cancer’s slogan says it all…”The World’s Toughest Sport Is Taking On The World’s Toughest Opponent!” Wrestlers who participate in the Pin Cancer campaign, ask for people to pledge money for each takedown, win, or pin that they earn throughout the season.
Anyone interested in helping Vincent Barber do his part to Pin Cancer should contact him directly at either firstname.lastname@example.org or (845)391-1490. Barber has wrestled for two seasons at Oneonta however is considering a transfer to Centenary in NJ. Centenary happens to be the school where another S9 Alum, Port Jervis graduate JD Zitone, just finished a tremendously successful career capped off by his 2nd place finish at the NCAA D3 Championships a few weeks ago. Great job Vinny and best of luck in this upcoming season!
