This is from Gary Iron Bear Myers. Thought it was worth a reposting....

 

 

(Gary Myers-) Ok I want to give a huge shout out to Tom Erikson. Tom has been working with me this past year with the boys wrestling program at Hamilton Heights.Tom has given a lot of time and effort mentoring me through my first year as a High School Wrestling Coach. He has been on the phone these past few days trying to get our boys scholarships. These are boys that nobody even heard of these past few years. He has put wrestlers on his travel team to get them experience. Tom lives an hour an half from our school and during the winter he drives here to help them and teach them the finer points of wrestling and life. I met Tom in 1986 at a tournament in Kansas. I have a story I have to tell. Isaac Ray one of my wrestlers was in a spring practice that Tom was teaching and Tom showed a move that Isaac liked. Well the very next Sat Isaac was wrestling for the bronze medal. Isaac went out and executed the move Tom showed him flawlessly several times to win the match and he was so proud of that when the ref told the two boys to shake hands, he leaned into the wrestlers ear and said compliment's of Tom Erikson. He turned to walk to me with this big grin on his face and I knew right then and there that our team was headed in the right direction. Thank You Tom Erikson!!

McCorkle told me when he and Mittrione trained with Erikson, that he tossed them around like rag dolls. And that given time and resources to train full time, he'd still beat 3/4 of the UFC heavies.

Thank you posting this, Wrestling and MMA have been very good to me and in saying it is a great honor to give back whenever possible. Gary is doing that and occasionally allows me to drop in and help.
