Steve Wolfe knows his stuff when it comes to coaching and wrestling. Call Us Champions would entertain the most avid wrestler all the way to a beginner. This is not only a excellent and fun book for those interested in wrestling but those interested in how it is to raise a family in Alaska. Wolfe writes about his young family in a way that makes you want to read more. Thanks for a wonderful book. Rainbow Saupe, San Jose, CA Steve Wolfe does a wonderful job of captivating not only the idiosyncrasies of the sport of wrestling, but the essence of the human spirit. I found myself laughing out loud of some of the humorous events within the book and appreciate having this coach share his experience with up and coming coaches like myself. Mike Illg, Lowell, MA
