Huntley, IL- The first time I met Huntley High School’s wrestling head coach, BJ Bertelsman, was at the Dvorak Memorial Invitational at Harlem HS in December of last year. He was very kind and professional and even commented on my Crystal Lake South HS basketball throwback jersey. Acknowledging my self-professed modest wrestling acumen, Bertelsman quipped, “I figured you were new at this with THAT (jersey) on.” A great comeback didn’t come to me until I was driving home later: “What was I supposed to wear, a singlet?” No, I don’t think so.
BJ is one of the best interviews around. He definitely tells you what he thinks, from the Cards vs Cubs, to his thoughts on other high school sports and much more. Please grab your singlet and head to the HHS’s wrestling room for some good old fashioned Southern fun. Enjoy!
