The Value of a Nobles Team

Longtime Nobles math teacher and wrestling coach Steve Toubman recently received two e-mails from former Nobles wrestlers who had written articles about the sport. He shares them here:

The first post is by Seth Goldman ’83 (graduate of Harvard College and Yale School of  Management). Seth is well-known to Nobles students; last September, he spoke in all-school Assembly when he was presented with the Distinguished Graduate Award. Seth is the co-founder, President and TeaEO of Honest Tea. Seth’s post is about how wrestling helped his entrepreneurial career:

The second article is by David Merrill ’92 (graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School), who is a practicing psychiatrist in New York City. He wrote a phenomenal article about Anthony Robles, the one-legged wrestler who won the NCAA title two years ago at 125 lbs. This well-researched and compelling story can be found at:
