Holley’s main man: Grillo remains one of wrestling’s best
July 22, 2017


HOLLEY — Andrew Grillo is getting married today.

And you can bet a very proud John Grillo will be right there by his side.

Why wouldn’t he be? After all, John Grillo, a New York State coaching legend and sure Hall of Fame selection, has been by all three of his sons’ sides throughout the Holley Hawk wrestling dynasty, which started back in 1975 by Grillo, and after a successful 12-year run at Pavilion, has continued since 1989.

Grillo, who retired from teaching this past spring after 42 years of being an educator, will be returning for at least another season on the wrestling mats at Holley.

And the Hawks are more than grateful for that.
