If/when Wink Charles wins his 100th career match, he will get his own page in the record books.
Or rather, share a page with his father.
For at that moment, David “Wink” Charles and his dad, Willard “Wink’ Charles, will become the first-ever L-L League father and son to post 100 career wins.
In a career from 1981-84, Wink’s dad became the second-ever L-L wrestler to win 100 matches, finishing his career with 102 wins
More as it develops.
With 96 career wins, young Wink is four victories away. Six of those victories have come at the expense of Manheim Township’s Smith twins, the most recent a 10-7 win over Alex Smith for the L-L 132-pound championship.
Wink is 4-1 lifetime over Alex Smith, with Alex’s only win in the 2011 Sectional championship match.
Adam Smith has fared better, splitting four matches, 2-2, but Wink has prevailed in back-to-back Mule Classic championship matches.
