Mr Z believes that young people can choose many paths. Here he is coaching Lizzie to two Second Place finishes in three years at the Girls National Wrestling Tournament. She also wrestled here at Clarkston and only lost twice during her two years of school wrestling--including a big win against the captain of the eighth grade team when she was in seventh grade!
