`Grizzly bear' Mack of Owings Mills decisively enters 100th-win habitat

City / County Edition

December 19, 2007|By STEFEN LOVELACE AND KATHERINE DUNN

Tony Mack of Owings Mills notched his 100th career wrestling victory in an emphatic fashion this month. The 160-pound senior pinned his Franklin opponent in 1 minute, 12 seconds.

"Tony's wrestled for me since he was 4 years old, when I had him in the rec program," Eagles coach Guy Pritzker said. "He's probably the toughest kid you'll ever see and also the nicest kid. He's been like a grizzly bear for us this year.

"I'd say he's a role model for everybody. I've never heard Tony complain in 13 years of coaching him, and I'm serious about that."

Mack's performance makes him easy to coach.

"He's pretty much an automatic six points every time he wrestles," Pritzker said. "When he wrestles now, we don't coach him, we just enjoy watching him wrestle. Your grandmother could coach Tony Mack."
