"There have been five different Head Coaches at Bellmont, but none of us have made a bigger impact on Bellmont Wrestling than John Friedt," noted current Bellmont coach Brent Faurote on a statement he issued on Indianamat.com Thursday.
A.J. Kalver, one of the key early figures in the growth of the Bellmont wrestling tradition and a man who has been involved in the sport for 50 years, will get his due Sunday at Greenwood when he will be inducted into the Indiana Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Kalver, who coached 15 years at Bishop Luers and turned that program from mat zero to the dominant team in Fort Wayne, has also been involved in broadcasting wrestling for 30 years and served 10 years as a wrestling official.
