The brain trauma suffered by wrestler Richard Perry in a freak accident during a training session.
Hamilton, one of the nation's premiere wrestling writers, tapped into his relationship with Perry (forged a year earlier during a Denver-bound flight when the pair were seated next to each other) to tell the Perry's story.
It centered not only on the training accident that threatened Perry's life but the wrestler's rugged upbringing and no-quit attitude that allowed him to become one of the nation's best in his weight class.
Hamilton finished the story with this quote from Mark Fong, one of Perry's former coaches, on the wrestler's injury: “He’s always overcome the odds. His whole life he’s overcome the odds. What makes this any different? They say one thing. They say he’s not going to do certain things. He’s going to overcome. That’s what he does."
