A North Allegheny wrestler is competing in the 2012 London games Jake Herbert has the chance to win a gold medal in the 185-pound freestyle weight class. “Red, white and blue and black and gold – that’s what I keep telling people,” he said.
KDKA Radio’s Rob Pratte is joined by Jim Wetzel, marshal arts expert, and Jake Herbert, Olympic wrestling star, for great radio on Black & Gold Sundays.
