                    The NBA'er was Manute Bol (who also tried his hand on the hockey ice to raise money for his country). Another father son duo was George Weingraub and his two sons "Leaping" Lanny Weingraub and Randy "Macho Man" Savage.

                      Well, I was thinking college ball. Kevin Nash played at Tennessee and went on to a successful pro wrestling career.

                          Are we allowed to post links to YouTube here? I didn't catch all of it, but it seems like the answer is no.

                          I'll wait to find out before linking, but until then, go there to see nice feature on Gordon Solie. It's a piece they played at his hall of fame induction this year. He was the best. No one close. The end.

                              As someone who began proper freestyle wrestling at the age of 5 and went on to compete in H.S. and beyond, I have an utter disdain for that phony Big Time rasslin' B.S.

                              But here's a nice list of NFLers who were proper wrestlers in H.S. and or College:
                              Notable NFL Players that Wrestled:
                              Stephen Neal OL (NE Patriots) 2x NCAA Champ, World Champ, and Super Bowl Winner

                              Roddy White WR (ATL Falcons) 2x SC State Champ
                              Mike Patterson DT (PHI Eagles)
                              Ronnie Brown RB (MIA Dolphins)
