HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Dozens of "smackdowns" happen every week in Hanover County. That's the name of a youth wrestling club where state and regional champions have gotten their start.
Parents of young wrestlers say veteran coach Mike Carlton has a heart of gold and he's devoted to club kids.
Coach says no child is turned away. If a child needs shoes or headgear no problem, their coach makes sure they have what they need to wrestle.
We met a group of young wrestlers, parents and coaches who surprised Mike with our Acts of Kindness recognition.
