Urbach tests wrestlers' mental, physical toughness
It's not often that the photo of a furry, white harp seal strikes fear into a person. Last Monday, however, it did just that to a number of young wrestlers at Powell High School.
The harp seal image, one of many photos of docile-looking seals taped to the window next to the entry way leading into PHS head coach Nate Urbach's classroom, wasn't exactly the scary part. It was more a case of what it represented — SEAL Day — an event that has become a tradition for the Panther wrestlers.
