Ex-Dover Coach Joins Elite Group
Author:  11/05/14 COLUMN By Steve Heiser of The York Dispatch  

2015 PWCA HOF - Charlie Jacobs

Charlie Jacobs loves wrestling.  He loves the toughness it demands.  He loves the lessons it
teaches.  He loves the character it develops.  And, most especially, he loves the way it turns boys
into men.

For those reasons, Jacobs dedicated much of his life to the sport, first as a competitor and later as
a coach.  Now, the wrestling community is paying back Jacobs for his many contributions.  The long-
time Dover High School coach has been selected for induction into the Pennsylvania Wrestling
Coaches Association Hall of Fame.  The induction ceremony is set for April 12 in State College.

The Shiloh resident becomes just the 10th man from the York area to earn the honor, joining
Charles "Chuck" Richards, John Toggas, Bill Bence, Dr. Ken Ober, Terry Conover, Shaun Smith, Joey
Wildasin, Tony Koontz and Brad Lloyd.  Those are legendary wrestling names in these parts, and
Jacobs deserves to be in their company.  "It's a great recognition," Jacobs said.  "I was elated to
hear that.  When you look at the list of inductees, to join that kind of group, I'm really elated and
happy to get that recognition."

As a high school wrestler at Dover, Jacobs won a sectional title at 95 pounds.  He then served as the
Dover High head coach from 1976 through 1992, compiling a 194-56-2 overall record (77 percent),
including a 141-32-1 league record (81 percent).  He won two York County titles (1983, 1984), four
sectional crowns (1980, 1984, 1991, 1992) and a District 3 championship (1983).  He also coached
40 individual sectional champs, nine individual District 3 champions and one state champion (Shaun
Smith in 1983).  Jacobs credited much of his wrestling success in wrestling and life to two men who
coached him at Dover High - Leon Senft and Harry Little.  They served as his role models when he
started coaching.

At the height of his coaching career, however, after winning his fourth sectional title in 1992, Jacobs
decided to step away.  Not because he was burned out, because his family came first.  "My first son
was 2 years old and I needed to be more involved in his life than in coaching," he said.  "I wanted to
move on and do a better job of raising my son.  Wrestling was always in me and will always be there.
You appreciate the effort that kids put into the sport.  The life skills they learn are just so valuable,
and to see them go on in life and succeed is gratifying."  After retiring from coaching at Dover, he
continued to offer some individual coaching instruction and also became an avid spectator.  In 2005,
he was inducted into the York Area Sports Hall of Fame.

Keeping Busy:  At age 67, Jacobs continues to keep busy.  He currently works at River Rock
Academy in Spring Grove, which provides alternative education services.  That followed a 37-year
career in public education, including 30 at Dover.  He also serves as chairman of the York Sports
Night Hall of Fame Committee and said he plans to volunteer at the prestigious Cadet Duals national
wrestling tournament, which is scheduled to be wrestled at the Utz Arena in each of the next three

Jacobs was nominated for PWCA Hall of Fame by his friend, Don Lehman, who is a 1973 West York
grad and the webmaster for westyorkwrestlingalumni.com, a very-well regarded wrestling website.
"Charlie loves the sport of wrestling and promoted the sport for many years," Lehman said.  "I have
spoken with athletes that wrestled for Charlie at Dover and others around the county that worked
with Charlie in the offseason, and all spoke very highly of him as a coach and a great man.  Charlie is
one of the most positive people I know.  He loves to talk about wrestling and sports in general...
Charlie genuinely cared about every athlete he coached."

Jacobs is still passionate about wrestling, and is quick to admit he's concerned about its future.  High
school matches these days are often littered with forfeits and the Olympics recently tried to eliminate
the sport.  "You don't play wrestle.  You play baseball.  You play basketball.  You play football,"
Jacobs said.  "Wrestling is a lot of work.  It takes a special kid to put in that kind of effort in
succeeding.  I am worried about it.  But you can't make it less difficult, because it's so rewarding
after the effort is put in."  Jacobs is a prime example of the type of man that wrestling can mold.
And on April 12, the Pennsylvania wrestling community will bestow him with one of its highest
rewards.  It's an honor he richly deserves.

               GAMETIMEPA.com  Throwback Thursday
                        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.

"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."
