1967 WRESTLING TEAM
Honored in 2012
If the legendary Coach Henriquez were here to reflect upon the Englewood School for Boys (ESB) 1967 Varsity Wrestling team, chances are good that he would attribute the team's success to the wrestlers putting team above self. This is evident in them fighting through and overcoming numerous injuries to key contributors. Led by captains Richard Fooshee (ESB '68) and Joe Pecoraro (ESB '67), these tenacious Bulldogs made sacrifices for the team, forgoing individual accolades by dropping down or moving up weight classes, overcoming injuries, and battling for every point. With such determination and sacrifice, the team compiled an 8-1 record and defeated Montclair and Morristown to become the first ESB wrestling team to win a State Championship title.
