Go Gunn wrestling, well done Zack and congratulations to the coaches too.

This proves that Gunn dominates in not only math/science, ping pong and tennis,--- football is an other matter-- but we have to let Paly feel good about one thing I suppose.

This was a great effort, I wish him well at state. You had to be there to see the change and effort. This is what makes a champion and the will to win. Never say " I can't do it". He did it, he saw it and he finish it.
