In response to input received from the community, Guilford

The nomination, submitted on behalf of the Ragsdale
Athletic Booster Club and Friends, proposes the name in honor of former

the wrestling program at Ragsdale and was instrumental in the
organization of hundreds of local and regional wrestling tournaments. He

involved with the YMCA in Jamestown.
