Huff Hall is where Adam Tirapelle worked.

Kam's is where the national championship-winning wrestler played.

Huff Hall was home to a lot of sweat, tears, stitches, stinky laundry, parking tickets and a few wins from November through March each year," he says. 

"It was like a second home and I can still recall the smells of walking through that basement door. We went to war every day on the third floor and came back down to the basement exhausted and broken, only to rinse and repeat.

And then there's what Tirapelle calls an “incomparable and indescribable attraction to Kam’s, which is almost impossible to admit we enjoyed that experience 20 years ago.”
