LEWISBURG — Had the coronavirus pandemic not struck, a longtime writer and wrestling enthusiast would be in Minneapolis, Minn., today enjoying his 48th edition of the NCAA National Wrestling Championships.

John Huckaby, of the Lewisburg area, retired in 2001 as a managing editor of The Standard-Journal. He worked for decades as a news and sports reporter and still writes a wrestling column once a week during the college season.
