Wrestling Spoken


A Novel By Milt Sherman



In his writing, Milt Sherman draws upon his thirty years of teaching and coaching experience.  A former All-American, he is a member of both the East Carolina University Athletic Hall of Fame and the North Carolina chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.  He has written more than two dozen articles for Amateur Wrestling News, Coach & Athletic Director, Wrestling USA, and W.I.N. magazines


Wrestling Spoken Here follows the main character Robbie and his friend Matt through Robbie’s first season as a high school athlete.  Readers will enjoy the combination of humor and drama which develops in the story. 


High school sophomore Robbie Renfro is not the most confident young man in the world.  He has grown up in a working class neighborhood, has a disgruntled father that drinks too much, and a problem with the neighborhood bully looming on the horizon.


Robbie is by no means a natural, but his efforts lead to a growing confidence both on and off the mat.  He must deal with competition, with issues at home, and with local bully Jake the “Snake.”  Racial tension interjects itself as Jake picks a fight with one of Robbie’s black teammates, a situation that places Robbie in the middle of troubling issues.


“It took me back to high school.”

Dr. Jim Decker, East Carolina University
