Joe Tholl, Sr. (1929 - 2014)
This past weekend the IKWF lost one of its founding fathers. Joe Tholl, Sr. was a coach with the Tinley Park Bulldogs and founder of the Orland Park Pioneers. He was an Ron Silverstein Award Winner (IKWF State Championships Grand Marshal) in 1982. Joe was instrumental in the creation and development of the IKWF. His impact on our sport and the IKWF can be measured by the 1,000's of wrestlers lives he impacted during his time with the Pioneers and Bulldogs. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Tholl family.
