Phil Maroney is a gentleman of the highest order. 

The first time I saw him was in December of 1960, when he was the coach in the greatest match I've ever seen:  Augie Pantellas of Upper Darby vs. Billy Stuart of Penn Charter.  Two incredibly fast kids with great power.  It went to OT and was decided by a referee's decision - going to Stuart.  Augie became a big time professional boxer, a world championship contender.  Billy was a member of that brutal Lehigh team that started with Mike Caruso - 3x NCAA Champ; Joe Peritore - 2x NCAA 2nd, 1x 3rd;  and Billy Stuart- NCAA Champ and 3rd;  and for a stand-in: Rich Warnke behind Caruso, NCAA 4th. 

I first met Phil in 1961, when he was coaching Penn Charter and our Jr Hi team wrestled there.
He reffed a bunch of my high school bouts.
and then in the 80's and 90's he was the lead ref for the tournament I ran for many years. 

He also coached The Shipley School. 

He's a heck of a nice guy and belongs in the HOF.

one of the true gentleman in the sport we all love. Phil Maroney was a ref when i became involved with the ICWL,  as the coach of upper merion and the president of the ICWL. it will be great seeing him this weekend.
to all wrestlers don't forget to give back what others have taught you.
