SHELLEY â A short time ago, Bryan Huntsmanâs old wrestling coach, Alan Gardner, came to Huntsmanâs office and handed him an envelope.
In that envelope was a letter of congratulations for Huntsmanâs selection for induction into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, Idaho Chapter.
âHonestly, my first thoughts were, âIâm not deserving of this,ââ Huntsman said.
Huntsmanâs induction into the Hall, scheduled in May, is as an outstanding American who was a wrestler at some time in his career.
