Vice President of the Friends of Long Island Wrestling and Vice President of the Long Island Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall Of Fame. Mr. Perri is one of the few men to have impacted wrestling coaches, wrestlers, officials, and fans.
During his last two years in high school, he was an undefeated wrestler and twice a Long Island Champion. Pascal went on to become the Captain of Syracuse’s Eastern Collegiate Championship team while also winning two EIWA Championships himself.
After his graduation from college, Pascal became a wrestling official. It was then that he recognized the need for better organization in the officiating ranks. He created the Long Island Wrestling Officials Organization followed by the National Wrestling Officials Organization. Along the way, Pascal earned the reputation as “the official” you as a coach or wrestler wanted to have on the mat, because he called every move the way he saw it. He combined that integrity with the instinctive movements of a championship wrestler, able to anticipate every move on the mat.
Mr. Pascal Perri officiated over thirty National Wrestling Championship Tournaments and over forty EIWA Championships. That is a record no other official has ever achieved. Today he is the ECAC Wrestling Director.
During the first one hundred years of wrestling in America, no other individual has ever matched Mr. Pascal Perri’s contributions or exceeded his recognition in the wrestling community.
