A tradition I have enjoyed over the years is to take a couple of weeks off for the holidays and then get right back into the swing of things by covering the Gary Cook Bomber Classic Wrestling Tournament at Argenta-Oreana High School.  So who’s Gary Cook?  Only the best wrestling coach in the state of Illinois. 


Coach Cook has over 35 years in business of coaching wrestling, is a member of IHSA Hall of Fame, and has over 500 career victories to his credit.  With those credentials, who wouldn’t want to be a part of his annual tournament?    17 high schools across Illinois participated in the two-day tournament held December 28-29 at AOHS.


Nate Jozsa, a junior at AOHS, is one of Coach Cook’s hopefuls for 2013.  Nate is currently ranked #1 in the State of Illinois in the 132 pound weight class.
