2015-16 Byram Hills Bobcats
Coach — Joe Grippi

How many years have you been coaching at your current school? This is my first year at Byram Hills.

How did you team do last season? Two All-Section wrestlers, Anthony Alexandrou and Luca Errico.

Who are your top returning wrestlers? Anthony Alexandrou and Luca Errico.

Who are the top wrestlers that you lost to graduation? None.

What is the strength of your lineup? We have some solid lightweights.

What will be the biggest challenge for your team? We have a very small team, so it’s tough to really compete without a full lineup. Just staying positive every day and knowing that we are working towards building our program.

Will you host any tournaments? No.

Which team(s) is your top rival? Fox Lane and Greeley.

What are your team goals for the season? Work hard and get better every single day. With a small team like we have, the focus is wrestling hard each and every day and setting the example for future BH wrestlers as we build the program.

On deck: John Jay
