NWHOF Florida Continues Its Support For the FLWHOF

For the second straight year the Florida Chapter is supporting the Florida Wrestling Hall of Fame which was founded by Bob Walker (CO 2003). On May 4, the FLWHOF Class of 2024 will be inducted. Behind the scenes will be 12 NWHOF Florida alumni and current board members putting their full resources into the second annual ceremony. Bob Walker has established this HOF to recognize outstanding Florida wrestlers and in this way compliments the mission of the NWHOF Florida Chapter who honors men and women who have achieved a 'Lifetime of Service' to wrestling. This year Bret Gustafson, Josh Lambrecht, Chris Bono (2023), Lee Pritts, Paul James"PJ" Cobbert, Robert Wimberly, Solomon Fleckman, and Sheriff Wayne Ivey will be honored.

Our Mission: To honor the sport of wrestling by preserving its history, recognizing extraordinary individual achievements, and inspiring future generations
