"A great show of the drive and intensity necessary to be a champion." —Rulon Gardner, U.S. Olympic Greco-Roman Wrestling Gold Medalist
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO SIX MINUTES ON A WRESTLING MAT...
Ivan Korske and Bobby Zane couldn't be more different — they come from different backgrounds, they have different lifestyles, and they each have very different ways of looking at the world. Yet both of these high school seniors have the drive, determination, and willingness to sacrifice whatever it takes to become a champion.
In the end, however, only one will raise his arm in victory and have the New Jersey State Wrestling Championship gold medal placed around his neck. Who will it be?
Pinned is an intense story of courage, dedication, and commitment that will leave you breathless.
"Pinned is a tough, savvy tale that melds the hard, tough sport of wrestling with the hard,tough lives of the two young men who seem locked into each others' destinies. Alfred Martino plays this story like a fine violin." — author Chris Crutcher
"Pinned reminded me of my high school years on the Paramus (NJ) wrestling team." — Matt Ghaffari, U.S. Olympic Greco-Roman Wrestling Silver Medalist
"I recommend this for any who know and appreciate the sport." — Gene Mills, U.S. Olympic Freestyle Wrestling Team
