Just in case you haven't heard by now, and just in case you're not from Harrisburg and you've perhaps lived under a rock that blocked out the light shining from the Hershey's Giant Center just a few years ago as Central Dauphin High schools wrestling team grappled their way toward a state title, now is your chance to see Takedowns and Falls. http://takedownsandfalls-blog.com/

Being billed as Spellbound meets Friday Night Lights, Takedowns and Falls Chronicles the athletic journey of a group of Pennsylvania teens and their quest to obtain a state wrestling championship.
