Lou Curra

Player Profile

In keeping with the tradition of great wrestlers at Old Dominion University, Lou Curra becomes the fifth wrestler to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

He quietly compiled a 44-13-1 record at ODU, earned All-American honors three times, as well as earning numerous conference titles.

A native of Cedarhurst, New York, Curra enjoyed an outstanding High School career under Bud Meredith, another Pete Robinson prodigy. As an ODU sophomore in 1968, the 115-pounder began making his mark on the national level with a fourth place finish in the NCAA College Division Championships. In 1969, Curra took fifth and as a senior in 1970 he placed fourth and advanced to the University Division championships. He captured the Mason-Dixon Conference tournament titles in 1968 and 1969.

As a senior, Curra was honored as the top scholar Athlete-of-the-Year at Old Dominion University. He carried 3.24 grade-point average, while majoring in industrial arts education. He graduated in 1970 and has been at Hauppauge High School in Port Jefferson, New York, since that time as a teacher and wrestling coach and presently as an assistant superintendent.

"It was quite an honor for me to come to Old Dominion and wrestle for Pete Robinson. I will always remember the friendships, the people at Old Dominion and my teammates. Pete Robinson will always hold a special place in my heart," notes Curra.
