Posted: Wednesday, Feb 13th, 2013

HONORING A FINE MAN! Nearly 50 current and former wrestlers came out to honor the retiring Rod Auvil, before the last home match of his Grafton High School coaching career. His Bearcats went on to win two matches and lose three more in the 2012-2013 Grafton High School Duals Wrestling Tournament held here at the Scotty Hamilton Gymnasium on Saturday, Feb. 9.

I want to thank everyone, especially my family, for this gesture...I will never forget this!”
