Episode 357 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast visits with Lehigh alum and wrestling media member Denny Diehl as he shares his memories and stories about the late John Harmon.

John J. Harmon, the EIWA's Sports Information Director Emeritus, passed away Tuesday, September 26, 2017. A 1959 graduate of Lehigh University John earned a B.A. in mathematics, is survived by his wife Elaine Oberkotter Harmon and his daughters Debbie and Wendy and their families.

John was a computer programmer/systems analyst by profession. Many knew him as the publisher for twenty-four years of the EIWA Newsletter, the clearinghouse of all information regarding the teams of the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association, the nation's oldest wrestling conference. He was the EIWA Sports Information Director for more than two decades. John worked with Greg Strobel, the EIWA's Executive Director, to create the conference's first website which incorporates many of the features of the EIWA Newsletter, which ceased publication in 2014. John co-authored the first and second editions of The History of the EIWA and from 1983-90 was editor of National Mat News. In 2012 he received the Dellinger Award as the nation's top wrestling journalist. He was a member of the Board of Governors of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater, OK, its NJ Wrestling Hall of Fame chapter and served a decade on the EIWA Hall of Fame Committee.

The generosity of John and Elaine to Lehigh was boundless. They were the lead donors for the renovations of Grace Hall that became Leeman-Turner Arena. Typical of the man, he insisted that the arena be named, not after himself, but after Hall of Fame coaches Gerry Leeman and Thad Turner. The Harmons also supported the building of Goodman Stadium, the head wrestling coach and assistant coaches’ endowments, the Michael Caruso Wrestling Complex, and the John J. Harmon '59 Wrestling Scholarship. Elaine assembled thousands of care packages for service members who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.

His community activities included the Lawrence Township Board of Education, the Mercer County Human Services Advisory Council, the Lawrence Rotary Club, and several New Jersey statewide committees dealing with education. A lifelong railroad enthusiast and investor, Harmon was a member of the National Railroad Historical Society.

Bass Master Elite Series Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk knew he wanted to be a professional fisherman when he was young. He discovered fishing right around the time he discovered wrestling. As a youth, a trip to a North Idaho College dual meet introduced him to the sport, while fishing with family and friends introduced him to his passion.

On Episode 356 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, we talk to Palaniuk about his wrestling career, it's relationship to fishing and how he was called out of "retirement" after high school to fill the spot at 133 pounds for North Idaho College and coach Pat Whitcomb about 10 years ago. Still a wrestler, Palaniuk is one of the top anglers in the world, evidenced by his season-long performance within Bass Masters.

Taking a walk around the Olympic Wrestling Center in Athens, Greece following the conclusion of the 2017 Cadet World Wrestling Championships, we run into some folks from Team USA.

After a great summer that saw Junior and Senior freestyle teams win team titles, the Cadets gave chase, but fell just short of sweeping the age-group worlds. We talk with Troy Nickerson, Lee Pritts, Kevin Jackson, Sean Bormet, Jason Babi and Kurt McHenry about the performances in Athens, including the four World championships won in freestyle.

Emma Randall didn't really know what sport she wanted to play coming out of high school. From a small town in Ohio, Randall chose Lock Haven and also decided to wrestle for the fledgling women's club team at the small Pennsylvania school.

Now Randall has found herself as part of the U.S. National coaching staff with coach Terry Steiner. Randall is the only woman in the country who holds a USA Wrestling Gold Coaching Certification. We'll talk to Randall about her coaching career and how it has blossomed since a chance internship at USA Wrestling in 2012.

Day 1 of Cadet Greco-Roman is off and running at the Olympic Arena in Athens, Greece. Episode 353 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast talks with coaches Zac Dominguez, Justin "Harry" Lester and Matt Lindland about their roles and the development of Greco-Roman wrestling.

The first day also saw the opening of a new two-day format that's more in line with how American wrestling fans are used to viewing. Coach Lindland talks about that angle and the developmental system and organizational system USA Wrestling has implemented the past few years.

Updates from Cadets will be a tad more plentiful this week.

It's a mini-update of sorts from Athens, Greece and the 2017 Cadet World Wrestling Championships. It's been a couple of weeks since the last Short Time Wrestling Podcast, so this one's just a quick update and a small story from the days where I talked about wrestling so much, it actually got me fired from an internship at a radio station.

Updates from Cadets will be a tad more plentiful this week.
