Hall of Fame Medal of Courage recipient and former U.S. National Team Member Richard Perry

Connecticut native Richard Perry has had a trying five years, but before he suffered an accident at Camp Pendleton in California when the U.S. national team was there training, Perry was a member of the national team who had been rapidly improving. A multiple-time NCAA qualifier at Bloomsburg, Perry didn’t start wrestling until he was in his later years in high school and eventually turned into a formidable threat on the senior level. His well-documented recovery from that freak accident and his family’s faith and support have lifted Perry back up. He will receive the National Wrestling Hall of Fame’s Medal of Courage this coming weekend in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Join Kyle Klingman and Andy Hamilton as they talk about the world of wrestling on the flagship podcast of from FloSports.
