     Charles "Chuck" Richards

       West York's 1st Wrestling Coach... 1934-56
    
  THE FATHER OF WEST YORK WRESTLING!

    

       
West York Coach Charles "Chuck" Richards graduated from Erie Academy, Erie PA in 1929
     and... entered F&M College in Lancaster, PA - graduating in 1934 with a B.A. in History.
     Richards began his teaching career at West York Area Senior High School in September of 1934.

        Chuck Richards was West York's first head coach and was a pioneer in York County Wrestling! 
     1934-35 West York team names included - McDonald, Dubbs, Sheffer, Sitz, Buchanan, Gohn, King,
     Whitmore, Brokenshire, Silar, Wilhide, Gentzler, Sheffer, Desenburgh, and wrestling manager Poff. 
     West York High School wrestled 8 dual meets that year against the likes of Gettysburg Freshmen,
     Manheim, F&M Frosh, Atlas, Patton Trade & Navy Plebes.  West York finished with a record of 4-4.

     ▪  The 1st West York dual meet was against Gettysburg College Freshmen - held on 1/19/1935.
    
West York Area High School lost that first wrestling dual meet 35-5.
     But, the long and proud West York Wrestling tradition had its beginning!

     ▪  The first West York Wrestling Team included wrestlers in grades seven through twelve!
     From 1934-54, Richards' high school wrestlers won 111 individual titles.  His teams won 72%
     of their wrestling matches.  Coach Richards had nine wrestlers that went on to coaching
     careers: H. Leon Senft, Herb Schmidt, Udell Seitz, Johnny Swartz, Edward Bupp, Nevin Hake,
     Dean Harbold, Ronald Myers and Eugene Brady.  West York won District III Team titles in 1936,
     1938 and 1942 ... Richards was a key organizer along with Al Brittain of Hershey High and Sherman
     Hollabaugh of Manheim High.  The 1st DIII Team Tourney was in 1936.


        Coach Richards' wrestling history was not very long.  He wrestled intramurals at Erie Academy.
     At F&M, he wrestled Hwt., having to lose weight before each match to make the weight limit.
     The F&M Head Coach at that time was Charles Mayser...F&M was a National Champion in the 30's!

        Coach Richards ALSO started the football program at West York, organized a boys and girls track
     program, coached the basketball team for one year, and coached a West York girls fencing team.
     Richards' WY Football Teams won 69% of their games during his 18 seasons.  Coach Richards
     headed up the school's track program for 24 years.  He retired from teaching @ West York in 1975.

     ▪  Charles "Chuck" Richards is in the York, District III and the PA Wrestling PWCA Halls of Fames.

     ▪  Coach Chuck Richards left the WY coaching duties at the end of the 1955-56 season.

Local Wrestling Loses Legend
by Steve Heiser 505-5446/@ydsports -
sheiser@yorkdispatch.com


Author:  10/14/15 COLUMN By Steve Heiser of The York Dispatch 



1973 -West York Coach John T. Toggas.

In sports, the word "legend" sometimes gets tossed around a little casually.
It's often used to describe athletes or coaches who are really very good, not great, and certainly
not legendary.

In York County wrestling circles, however, John Toggas was a truly legendary figure.

The longtime West York High School coach is in six separate halls of fame, he was the first York County
wrestling coach to reach 300 victories, and he coached three Pennsylvania state high school
champions.

Those are some serious coaching credentials.

Unfortunately, Toggas died on Friday in Bensalem at age 83.  His death, however, will not diminish
the memories of the man for the people who knew and admired him.

"(West York) lost a great coach, mentor and friend," said Don Lehman, who runs the West York
Wrestling Alumni website.  "Coach Toggas left a lasting mark on West York wrestling."

  Respect from a coaching rival:  One of the men who often went head-to-head against Toggas was
longtime Dover coach Charlie Jacobs.  Both men are in the Pennsylvania Wrestling Coaches
Association Hall of Fame.  Despite being coaching rivals, Jacobs had nothing but respect for Toggas as
a coach and a man.  "John loved the sport of wrestling," Jacobs said.  "He brought great energy and
enthusiasm, which always generated much excitement during any matches with his Bulldogs.  "His
"Bulldog Pride" caused all opposing coaches to work extra hard to compete with his tough squads."

  Fierce competitor:  At his heart, Toggas was a fierce competitor.  That trait helped the York High grad
compile a 307-110-4 career record at Biglerville (38-32-2 from 1958 through 1964) and West York
(269-78-2 from 1964 through 1983 and 1986 through 1991).

"(He) wanted to win every match," Lehman said.  "I'm sure the coaches in the county who competed
against West York in those days would agree with that."  Despite his competitive streak, Toggas was
not stingy with sharing advice with other wrestling coaches.  "He was willing to share with us younger
coaches what he thought was important to creating a successful wrestling program," Jacobs said.  "He
certainly had a tremendous influence on the success of the York County wrestling scene."

  Career highlights:  One of the highlights of Toggas' career came in his final season in 1991 when his
Bulldogs topped Cumberland Valley, 31-28, for his 300th victory.  Of course, that's just one of many
career highlights.  Here are a few others:
▪ He coached three state champions (Dana Luckenbaugh in 1965 and Bill Luckenbaugh and John
Sprenkle in 1969).   Dana Luckenbaugh was York County's first state champ.
He was inducted into the National Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1999 and the York
Area Sports hall of fame in 1995.
He won five York County League championships, was a two-time York County League Coach of the
Year and guided his Bulldogs to the 1971 team title at the prestigious Easton High School Holiday
Tournament.

Watching 'his boys' succeed:  While Toggas liked winning championships and earning honors, he might
have gotten more enjoyment out of seeing his wrestlers excel after leaving West York.  "Many of his
athletes continued successful wrestling careers beyond high school, and several were able to give
back to the sport by becoming coaches and officials," Jacobs said.  "I know he loved seeing 'his boys'
achieve that success and recognition on the state and national levels."

  Lots of support:  Lehman said one of the keys to Toggas' success was the wide-ranging support he
received from his family and the broader West York community.  "Coach Toggas had a great wife
(Mary Jane) and family (son John S. "Moc" and daughter Steph) who came to practically every match,"
Lehman said.  "Coach Toggas also had a great support team in Raymond Troxell (the West York
Superintendent), Neil Everhart (the West York Principal) and coaches Robert Bowers, Whedon Myers,
John Sprenkle, Bill Luckenbaugh, etc., throughout his coaching years.  West York also had a fabulous
fan base for the sport of wrestling and Coach Toggas, along with his booster club, had a lot to do with
that."

Maintaining his love for the sport:  After retiring as a coach, Toggas maintained his ties to the sport as
a high school official and was a member of the NCAA Rules Committee as a high school representative.
He also loved to talk about the sport.  "Before he got ill, Coach Toggas would stop by my home every
Thursday to sit in my office to chat about everything under the sun," Lehman said.  "He loved wrestling
and missed all facets of it after he retired."

  Lasting legacy:  There's little doubt that the York County wrestling community will miss Toggas as well.
"All of us need to remember and appreciate the great contribution he gave to the great sport of
wrestling," Jacobs said.  "Thanks, J.T."  That's a lasting legacy for a legendary coach.

                        West York Wrestling's success can be traced back to a 1965 state championship
                                                          by Steve Navaroli  8/27/14
                                    
                               1964-65 - YCIAA League Wrestling Co-Champions!
                               1965 YCIAA Sectional II Team Tourney Champions
                                  ▪ Front Row (L-R)
Jeff Linebaugh, Gary Carbaugh, Dana Luckenbaugh,
                                  Darryl "Smokey" Dennis, Burton Snyder, Steve Kunkle & Tom DeLong.
                                  Back (L-R) WY Coach John T. Toggas, Jack Hershberger, Don Narber,
                                  Fred Lehman, Charles "Chuck" Bostic, Gary Narber & William Wiehe.

          In 1969, West York had a pair of PIAA wrestling champions in John Sprenkle (Hwt.)
   and Bill Luckenbaugh (127).  In fact, that championship closed Sprenkle's stellar career with a 55-6
   record and Luckenbaugh went on to star on the mat at
East Stroudsburg, where he won both PSAC

   and NCAA Division II titles in 1974.

        But the example of what was possible was set when Luckenbaugh's brother, Dana Luckenbaugh,
   earned the first-ever PIAA championship won by a then-YCIAA (now YAIAA) wrestler.  Dana
   Luckenbaugh topped former state champ Bill Welker of Shamokin High School, 4-3, in the 112-pound
   final.  Sprenkle said that, and the entire 1965 West York squad, showed his team how to be successful.

  

   West York's 1965 PIAA State Wrestling Champion - Dana Luckenbaugh.
   York, PA's FIRST... PIAA State Wrestling Champion!


       
"I was blessed and fortunate to be on some great teams at West York," said Sprenkle, who was
   also a football star for the Bulldogs.  "That '65 team was an awesome one.  (John) Toggas was a
   phenomenal coach."  It capped an amazing three-year run for West York which won the YCIAA team
   championship from 1963-1965, amazingly with three head coaches: Bob Brown, Ken Ober and Toggas.

        Dana Luckenbaugh was a three-time YCIAA sectional champ.  Teammate Darryl "Smokey"
   Dennis (120 pounds), won two sectional titles.  Several years later, his brother, Bill, followed by Neil
   Bupp, Kevin McCleary and Donald Lehman would go on to become the school's other three-time
   section title winners.

        Sprenkle recalled seeing Dana Luckenbaugh when kids would go to the former A. H. Martin
   Elementary School and "roll out the horsehair" wrestling mats under the watchful eye of coach
   Don Strausbaugh.  "(Strausbaugh) could never keep Dana in the wrestling room.   He always wanted to
   be up in the gym shooting baskets," Sprenkle laughed.  "Everything to him came natural.  He didn't
   have to work as hard as Bill and I did."


        But, Dana Luckenbaugh, who posted a 56-6-1 record as a high school grappler, was one of a kind.
   Just ask Charlie Jacobs, who wrestled at rival Dover during the same time period.  "He was very strong,
   he never panicked," Jacobs said.  "He used to read the comics before the matches.  Nothing excited
   Dana.  He had extremely long arms and thick hands. When he put a tight waist on you, you knew it.
   He was very tough."

This website is dedicated to the great memory of an office, full of photos,
    a coffee pot, and the endless conversations between wrestlers and their coach.  
This
    website is dedicated to the memory of a scales room, clean and immaculate,
with
    nicely framed photos of "past" West York Wrestling champions and championship
    teams... and, an exam table used for daily naps!  This website is dedicated to the
    memory of a small hot wrestling room -  full of records, all-time teams, motivational
    quotes and a dark blue mat kept clean by a team of dedicated "mat maids."  This
    website is dedicated to the memory of an old equipment room, with its proudly
    hung and pressed WY uniforms, and an equipment locker with a history of WY's
    YCIAA Sectional Champions, so neatly written.  This website is dedicated to the
    memory of those great fans, the full gyms and the proud support we felt. 
The Alumni
    Website is dedicated to the memory of a head coach who had the vision
for the
    above, and the great patience to stay those long nights while his wrestlers
chatted
    & took those long showers after a tough practice or dual meet. 
This website is
    just a "modern" extension of the visuals we saw during our lives at West York Area!

     ▪ This website is dedicated to a former head coach who cared, John T. Toggas
    and the many WY athletes who competed in the World's Oldest and Toughest Sport!
