    In March of 2021 at the NCAA Division I wrestling championships in St. Louis, five African-American wrestlers – Iowa State's David Carr, Minnesota's Gable Steveson and the Penn State trip of Roman Bravo-Young, Carter Starocci and Aaron Brooks — all won individual championships. It was a high water mark for wrestlers of color, especially African Americans as at the top level of men's college wrestling – Division I – half of the champions were African American, the most in any one single season.  It was historic as much as it was iconic, but for records to be set, there must first be people to do something unique, to do something first, to do something – again - iconic.  This series from Etched in Stone will tell you the in-depth story of Lloyd Keaser – A man who overcame growing up in a segregated community near Baltimore and battled through poverty ad racism on – and off – the mat and through it all, excelled in the classroom and excelled for his country.

After the drop of wrestling at some wannabe school in Norfolk, Virginia, the initial idea sparked something in Jim Dutrow, who wanted to do more to draw awareness to our sport -  the #WrestlingShirtADayInMay movement was born. Dutrow, a Virginia native and former college wrestler at some school in Harrisonburg that also dropped wrestling, launched the initiative as a way to recognize schools with wrestling and thank them for their support.  The second year #WrestlingShirtADayInMay has seen over 150 wrestling fans showcase over 1,000 shirts and counting just 10 days into the month.

    Longtime sports journalist Ann Killion of the San Francisco Chronicle joins the Short Time Wrestling Podcast to talk about the situation at Stanford. Now a columnist after impressive career stops at the Los Angeles Times, San Jose Mercury News and Sports Illustrated, Killion's job is to offer her perspective on topics in and around sports and the Stanford drop of 11 sports definitely got her attention. Killion and I will talk about why this is an important topic for a columnist to pay attention to, what the local media's role is in talking about topics like this which are often overlooked due to reader surveys and topics that "don't sell papers," and why Stanford's leadership should be held accountable and have to actually answer for their decisions. Killion also points out some of the fallacies in the posted rationale and what's happened with Stanford sports since the announcement last summer.  Daily Wrestling News, delivered every day, free.
