August 23, 2012

OPRF wrestling coach Mike Powell will be inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame this October. At the same time, he'll also receive the Illinois Chapter's Medal of Courage, which the organization awards for overcoming what appear to be insurmountable challenges. Coach Powell is a 1994 graduate of OPRF, where he won a state wrestling title, then became an NCAA All-American at Indiana University. Under his leadership, the Huskies won a Class 3A State Dual Team Championship in 2009. Congratulations, Coach Powell!
