Former Amityville High School alumni Jim and Tony Nordland are to be inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in April 2017. The Nordland brothers wrestled in the early 1970s for National Hall of Fame Coach Norm Maisel and finished their high school careers with All-County honors. Following their high school graduation both were standouts at Nassau Community College under legendary Coach Chuck Henke. They contributed to helping Nassau CC to Regional Championship titles and a high ranking amongst the top teams in NJCAA competition.

     Following their SUNY college graduations they began coaching careers in Nassau County, Jim at Berner High School and younger brother Tony at Massapequa High School. In the early years at Berner, Jim worked with mentor and National Hall of Fame Coach Dick Doherty and was elevated to head coach in 1983, while Tony had the privilege to assist National Hall of Fame Coach Gary Mims. Their elite teams often vied for county championship titles and had numerous county champions, along with All-County and All-State performers. Both produced state champions; Steve Whelan (1982) at Massapequa HS and Michael Bevilacqua (1985) at Berner HS. Later Jim coached at Chaminade High School under the tutelage of National Wrestling Hall of Fame Coach George Dlugolonski and some of their mat squads won many CHSAA Championships and in 1991 had three All-State matmen. Both Jim and Tony concluded their coaching stints in the Sachem School Districts; Jim at Seneca JHS and Tony at Sagamore JHS with lifelong friend, Tim Cummins.

     Perhaps the brothers greatest achievement in wrestling was when they combined their efforts with members of the Fiorvanti family (the late Rudy and younger brother Jack) in producing a wrestling publication and nationally acclaimed website.  Founded in 1979 and called "The Mat Slap", it features both Long Island and New York State individual wrestling rankings, along with in-depth articles and action packed photographs that showcase the top wrestlers in the Empire State. It is a favorite among wrestling fans, athletes and coaches, and often utilized by college coaches in their recruiting process. Over the past 37 years the Mat Slap has covered both Nassau & Suffolk Championships, the CHSAA Championships, NYS Intersectionals, National HS Championships, NWCA All-Star meet, the World Championships (2003) at Madison Square Garden and the NCAA Division I Championships. Jim and Tony are editorial consultants for the Friends of Long Island Wrestling publication and also worked exclusively with Amateur Wrestling News. In 2010, Tony was recognized as the National Wrestling Photographer of the Year and both are members of the National Wrestling Media Association.

     Jim and Tony are humbled by this prestigious honor bestowed to them by the Hall of Fame Committee. They look forward to this special night with the rest of the Nordland and Doherty families and are appreciative of all the support by their wrestling supporters/sponsors over the years. Thank you.




1000 Island Duals 2016

Massapequa takes 4th Place in the 16 Team Silver Bracket at the 2016 1000 Island Summer Duals


Former Massapequa Wrestler Needs Our Help

It is with great sadness we report that Rich has lost his battle with cancer.
Massapequa Funeral Home, 1050 Park Blvd, Massapequa Park
Tuesday & Wednesday 2 - 4pm & 7 - 9pm
Maria Regina, 394 Jerusalem Ave, Seaford
Mass 9:45am Thursday

Most of you are probably not aware that Rich Anderson (Mepham) was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer last fall. Not many people knew about his health issues.  He kept it quiet and received treatment throughout the wrestling season.  He continued to coach the Mepham wrestling team while going through rounds of chemo & radiation.  On May 25th, Rich had surgery and everything seemed to be going well.  Over the weekend, Rich was rushed to emergency room where Doctor's discovered he has three brain tumors.  One was removed last night and they hope to treat the other two with radiation.  Needless to say it has been a very stressful time for Rich and family.  Rich has been a dedicated coach in Nassau county for over 20 years.  More important he has been a great friend and colleague to all of us.  For those who wrestled for him, know he was one of the most dedicated coaches around.  There is nothing he wouldn't do for his wrestlers! His wife and three kids need our prayers, support, & help.  Grand Ave Middle School has set up a Go fund me account (See link below).  Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,
Brian DeGaetano

If I Could Do It All Over Again


If I could do it all over again, I would  take advantage of every practice. I would push myself to the limit…and then further each day.


If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t worry so much about winning but instead about enforcing my will upon my opponent, and let the winning take care of itself.


If I could do it all over again, I would refuse to feel sorry for myself whenever I experienced failure or defeat. Instead, I would use it as motivation to move forward, work harder, and gain perspective. And I would always remind myself that failure is not something to be feared but something to learn from.


If I could do it all over again, I would pursue veterans of the sport, listen to them, learn from them, and take full advantage of their knowledge and experience.


If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t dread encounters with tough opponents, I would desire them. I would seek out the best and set a course to defeat and conquer.


If I could do it all over again, I would fight through pain and fatigue when my body yearns to shut down. For the greatest sorrow in losing a wrestling match might just be “giving up” rather than merely losing. (If I’m going down, I’m going down swinging).


If I could do it all over again, I would avoid thinking about wrestling as something to extract my own glory or self-worth, and view it instead as a gift to be engaged.


If I could do it all over again, I would always resort to humility as opposed to arrogance. There’s a difference between confidence and arrogance, and one’s ego should never take precedence


If I could do it all over again, I would soak in the atmosphere of big tournaments – state and national – and thank God for the experience. .


If I could do it all over again, I would try and have fun. Life is short, and a wrestling career even shorter. I wouldn’t want to miss a single opportunity to compete.


If I could do it all over again, I would put on my wrestling shoes and tie them a little slower; because the day will come when I am not afforded the opportunity to put on a pair of wrestling shoes again.


If I could do it all over again, I would dream a little bigger, set goals that appear unlikely or impossible, and then pursue them as if the  “impossible”  is a foreign concept


If I could do it all over again, I would smile a little brighter and walk a little taller, because I would be a part of the oldest and greatest sport on earth.


But the truth is…I can’t do it all over again. The time is gone and the regrets are plenty. But perhaps my regrets will lose their sting  as I encourage  current wrestlers to learn from my mistakes and take advantage of the time they have.


If I could do it all over again, I would…and in a heartbeat. Don’t let my regrets be yours. This sport is just too great to not enjoy all that is available within it. As the famous Dan Gable has said, “Once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy.”

February 13, 1952 - April 13, 2007

Rudy Fiorvanti, a 1970 Massapequa HS alumnus passed away peacefully at his home in East Northport, LI, NY, surrounded by his loving family, his wife Patricia, sons Michael and Patrick, along with his daughters, Annie and Christie. Rudy was stricken with a deadly disease, leukemia, this past year and battled throughout the past months and showed extreme courage before he succumbed, he was 55.

Rudy was a rare three sport athlete, he lettered in football, wrestling and lacrosse in high school. In his senior year, he was the only wrestler to defeat the state champion and finished as a Nassau County Championship finalist. Although Rudy wasn't a state wrestling champion, he was a true champion nonetheless.

He attended Nassau CC, where he was undefeated in wrestling and entered the National Junior Championships, as the second ranked wrestler in the nation. He later attended Hofstra University where he competed in all three sports and was a qualifier at the 1975 NCAA Wrestling Championships.

In his opening bout, he defeated Bob Steele (Wyoming), 6-3. After graduation, he worked as a South Shore lifeguard at Tobay Beach, where he was involved in beach competition teams, including the line pull rescue. He led Tobay to numerous championships against the best squads on Long Island and the Eastern seaboard. Also, at Tobay he captured awards at the Tyler Lynde Memorial Boat Race, with his rowing partner and lifelong friend, Gary Jaeger. He was a lifeguard for the past 37 years.

Rudy also founded Action Fitness, a sports and fitness superstore where he was the president in the family owned business since 1981. Rudy's brother, Ed, is now currently the presiding officer in the company, at the Hauppauge based superstore. Rudy was also the Operations Manager and coordinator for The Mat Slap, a popular wrestling website and annual publication. Rudy is survived by his brothers, Ed, Jack and Thomas, along with his sister, Mary.

The most important part of Rudy's life was his family, which always came first, followed by his close friends. Rudy provided everything for his family and would do anything for his many friends. He was respected, revered and loved by everyone. His legacy is a caring, compassionate and a benevolent person, with a heart of gold. He brought so much to the table, and if you were a friend of Rudy's, it was for a lifetime.

In a book witten by Tom Rath, Vital Friends, The People You Can't Afford To Live Without, the author describes eight vital roles; builder, champion, collaborator, companion, connector, energizer, mind opener and navigator, Rudy possessed all of those characteristics.

We lost a giant of a man, a person that comes along once in a lifetime. Another close friend said, "God will never ask you to carry a stone that is too heavy", but the passing of Rudy Fiorvanti is a huge loss and will be difficult for everyone that knew him. He will be missed tremendously and always be remembered. He will be "Forever in our Hearts". We know that God only takes the best and he took one of the great ones. We will miss you and always love you! May God Bless him and his loving family.

A scholarship fund in Rudy's name has been established. If you would like to donate, please send your contribution to the Tobay Lifeguards, 23 Bonnie Kay Court, Sayville, NY 11782.
