    Cleaning up the Key Bridge with Kramer Whitelaw

    Cleaning up the Key Bridge with Kramer Whitelaw

    Kramer Whitelaw works as a deckhand with McAllister Towing in the Baltimore Harbor. In March, Merchant Vessel Dali slammed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge, causing it to collapse and close marine traffic in one of the busiest ports in the country.

    Whitelaw, a former wrestler at George Mason University and McDonogh School in Maryland and a current assistant high school wrestling coach, was part of the clean up crew and talks about the experience from a work perspective, from a perspective of being a former wrestler and as that of a Baltimore native.

     
    Whitelaw is still actively involved in the sport as a coach, but given his role with the company, he’s had to step back some, but still finds time to coach with former high school teammate Brynn Holmes at Gilman School and this week, is on the U20 Pan Am coaching staff for Team USA in Peru.

    Dr. Brandon Mason, Wrestling's Radiologist

    Dr. Brandon Mason, Wrestling's Radiologist

    During Hall of Fame Honors Weekend in Stillwater, Oklahoma, we got a chance to get outside of central Stillwater for a bit and meet up with Dr. Brandon Mason. A four-time NCAA Division I qualifier and 2007 All-American at 174 pounds for Oklahoma State, Mason is now a radiologist at Stillwater Medical Center.
     
    Mason was also recently on a tour as the team doctor with USA Wrestling at the All-World qualifier in Istanbul. In this episode of Short Time, we break down Mason’s entry into wrestling coming from western Iowa and the famed Lewis Central High School program, his early desire to be a radiologist and how he ended back up in Stillwater.
     
    He’ll also touch on his career as a Cowboy, his relationship with recent inductee Coleman Scott and current Little Rock head coach Neil Erisman and what his experience as a wrestler has brought not just to his tours with Team USA, but his time back matside in Gallagher-Iba Arena as part of the wrestling program’s medical personnel.

    Catching up with Olympic journalist and longtime wrestling fan Maggie Hendricks

    Catching up with Olympic journalist and longtime wrestling fan Maggie Hendricks

    In niche sports journalism, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and storytelling are key to success. On the latest episode of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, host Jason Bryant catches up with longtime wrestling friend and fellow scribe Maggie Hendricks, who currently covers a number of sports for Olympics.com. The Chicago native has previously covered college and Olympic sports, wrestling, MMA and a bevy of others at outlets like Yahoo, USA Today and Ballys Sports. She was in State College covering the U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

    Initially friends via the message boards, The two talk about their lives crossing paths via the internet wrestling world, covering events, strengths and backgrounds in covering niche sports. Hendricks also shares her experiences from covering women’s sports, which also battles for screen time and mainstream media attention just like wrestling and what may be helpful to grow wrestling in the media like we have seen with NCAA softball and women’s basketball. You can find Hendricks on the socials @maggiehendricks.
