Scott Goodale names assistant coach

John Leonardis, the head coach at The Peddie School, Hights-town, Mercer
County, has been hired as a full-time assistant wrestling coach at Rutgers
Uni-versity, new Scarlet Knights' head coach Scott Goodale an-nounced
yesterday.

A former wrestler at both Le-high University in Bethlehem, Pa. and Blair
Academy in Blairstown, Warren County, Leonardis will coach the
upper-weights, Goodale said.

"He's someone who brings a lot of intensity and will get the best of our
wrestlers both on the mat and in the classroom,'' said Goodale, the former
Jack-son Memorial head coach who was hired as Rutgers' head coach this past
Tuesday.

"He's got great New Jersey ties, which is the whole theme of the things
we're trying to do, and technique-wise, he's one of the best around. "He
will give the upperweights somebody to work with, which they really haven't
had in the past.''
