Silhouetted against a supple black mat in their radiant new wrestling room, the Four Horsemen stand again. In dramatic lore they are known as Famine, Pestilence, Destruction and Death. These are only aliases. Their real names are Ben “The Beast” Ashmore, Luke “Hi-Ho” Silver, Johnny “The Crusher” Koepp and “Cool Hand” Luke Ashmore. They form the lineage of the Bishop Lynch High School wrestling team, destined to be the greatest in Texas high school history. In the most recent preseason rankings, Amateur Wrestling News has Bishop Lynch ranked 7th nationally, ahead of a dozen perennial national powerhouses. Nazareth (PA), Brandon (FL), St. Paris Graham (OH), and El Reno (OK) among others all ranked below B-L.

Imagine that.
