    The Apotheosis of Alan Fried

    We've done this before. Have we, the 40-50 year old wrestling fan, elevated late 80s Ohio legend Alan Fried to godlike status? I still consider him to be the most dominant Ohio high school wrestler ever, but am I looking through a blurred lens? There are so many amazing guys that have rolled...
