What does wrestling have to do with Biltmore?

So what does wrestling and Biltmore grounds maintenance have in common?  This summer we have 4 high school wrestlers working on the grounds crew.  This past season the Barrington HS wrestling team took 4th in the state.  One of the summer workers (my son Cameron) will also be wrestling for Iowa State University next year.  Follow this link of cameron's interview at ISU.
