Training for high school wrestlers can be “strenuous and monotonous,” says EDG founder Bob Gullo. Gullo should know, having been both a wrestler himself and after spending countless hours cheering on his son, Rob a two- time team Wrestling Captain, ranked 7th all time in school history with 114 career wins for Pearl River High School in Rockland County, N.Y. But it’s a lot less monotonous for the Pearl River wrestling team these days, thanks to Gullo, who installed a state-of-the-art AV system in the school’s training room that will deliver sound and video for years to come.
The room “hadn’t been touched” for 30 years, Gullo says, so in preparation for its AV refresh, it was stripped down to its concrete shell, washed and painted before transitioning into a full-blown multi-media training room. Gullo borrowed from his residential media room experience to design a dual-display system that would enable one wrestler to receive a one-on-one match review on a 22-inch LG monitor in the back of the room while the team watches an instructional video.
