Maryland wrestling coach Kerry McCoy has long had a special affinity for the Olympics. He competed in 2000 and 2004, taking fifth in Sydney and seventh in Athens. He coached the national team in the next Summer Games in 2008. So McCoy was particularly gratified by the International Olympic Committee's decision Sunday to restore the sport for the 2020 games. The action came after the executive board had decided in February ago to remove it. Wrestlers didn't know if the 2016 games would be their last chance for Olympic medals.

In bold black letters across the back of Calloway Lee's Catonsville High wrestling hoodie are two words: Bone Crusher. Take a quick glance at the senior heavyweight wrestler's 5-foot-9, 220-pound frame and couple that with his accolades as the captain and MVP of the Comets' football and wrestling teams, and the nickname is warranted. But ask those around Lee, and they have different words for him. Once that hoodie comes off, the real Calloway Lee - one they say always puts others before himself - takes to the field or mat. "I think he's probably one of the most caring athletes I've been around," Catonsville football coach Rich Hambor said of Lee, who plays defensive line and running back.

Longtime Loyola wrestling coach Dennis Frazier confirmed that his teaching contract is not being renewed for next season, and that he has applied for teaching and coaching positions in Howard and Carroll counties, as well as for a teaching position at Western Maryland College. Frazier, 44, a 17-year physical education teacher and wrestling coach, said he was told by a school administrator three weeks ago that he would not be rehired because Loyola was "moving in a new direction." Loyola athletic director John Tucker said the physical education department was overstaffed and had to be reduced.

When Chris Stalker was hired last fall as Patterson's assistant football coach, the New York native had no clue he would lead wrestler Deshawn Barrett through one of Baltimore City's greatest success stories. "I knew Chris wrestled in high school, but he didn't know I wanted him for that," said Roger Wrenn, Patterson's longtime football coach and athletic director. "I asked him to [coach] halfway through football season. He accepted, not knowing I already had him in mind." Last weekend, Stalker ended his first head-coaching season in any sport by guiding Barrett to his 44th straight win and the 215-pound title in the National Coaches' Association Wrestling Tournament in Cleveland.

Their defense is superior. Their intensity is relentless. And they have athletic ability in abundance. To Century girls basketball coach Joel Beard, only one factor is keeping his first-year Knights from becoming one of the metro area's top teams. Their shooting is abysmal. "We're winning games but not shooting much over 30 percent," said Beard, whose team is 7-4 overall, 4-1 in Carroll County. "We've been very fortunate. It's a skill we've got to get better at." Case in point was a loss to Thomas Johnson earlier this month.

As a 30-year retired wrestling coach still active on state committees, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Gregory Kane ( "Gregory Kane, former Sun columnist, dies at 62," Feb. 20). Mr. Kane often wrote about wrestling in relation to his own high school experiences and to the values taught by the nature of the sport. The extraordinary mental and physical requirements led to the development of discipline and a work ethic that many wrestlers display throughout their lives.

This was always the worst time of year. Covering Harford County sports years ago, I thought the lull between the end of the fall season and the beginning of the winter was dreadful. There were only two sports - basketball and wrestling (three if you count boys and girls basketball separately). The late Al Cesky, then the head of interscholastic athletics after a legendary career coaching football at Bel Air High School, was working on adding swimming as an interscholastic sport.

As a high school head wrestling coach for 34 years and a high school and college wrestler before that, it isn't hard to pin down Bill Hyson when it comes to talking about the sport. "Wrestling is an unique ...sport," said Hyson, a coach and teacher at Francis Scott Key High School. "In wrestling, you're putting it all out there on the mat. " The sport that places strict demands on an athlete on and off the mat, especially in terms of diet and conditioning, has been part of Hyson's life since he arrived at the school in Union Bridge in the early 1970s.
