Arieh Hart was big sports news in the local media
he was athlete of the year in the local regional paper, etc. i want to say he was a really good RB for the football team as well (i think they got to the semi-final that season where they were knocked off by the Fighting PCK's). i might be mis-remembering the timing on that though.
Little Egypt has fallen on some hard-ish times sports wise so his wrestling title was a big accomplishment in the area.
Definitely had not heard this story before. Great to see it changing with the younger generation.
