It's really hard to win a state title in New Jersey.
Each year only 14 wrestlers are crowned champions at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
Larry Guarino, Mike Mazzeo, Phil Gottlick, and Tony Williams know it all too well having made it to the finals two times without reaching the top of the podium.
