I just wanted to write a little note of deep appreciation and thanks to all of you who support this site.

Last week we crossed a major threshold with our 7,000th visitor!

When I started this site three years ago I was hoping for 2,000. The growth of the site has exceeded all expectations.

We have visitors from 33 states and six countries. If you curious on the stats Pennsylvania is of course tops with the most visitors followed by Virginia, New York and California.

I started this site with the hope of getting our wrestlers more exposure from fans and college coaches alike and I think it has done that.

Many sportswriters today only talk about the negative side of sports. I wanted to show not only are these Mifflin County boys solid wrestlers, but solid citizens as well. That is and will be the mission of this site. It’s not about me, it’s all about them.

Once again thank you. None of this is possible without your readership.
