On Tuesday’s Drive, Jack, Graham Couch and Terry Denbow (along with Doug Warren) discussed who should be on Lansing’s Prep “Mt. Rushmore.” After extensive deliberation, this was our group.
1. Earvin “Magic” Johnson
2. Marcus Taylor
3. Randy Kinder
4. Nick and Andy Simmons*
*Note: The reason we settled on both Simmons brothers instead of just one, is that neither of them lost a match during their respective careers at Williamston.
Nick was 211-00 with 178 pins and a state-record 54 consecutive pins during his 57-0 sophomore season.
Meanwhile, younger brother Andy’s prep record was 219-0 – which was, for a short time, a national and Michigan record for consecutive wins.
And to our knowledge, they never wrestled each other in a sanctioned bout to settle the dispute. . . . So we made it a tie for the fourth spot.
