Roger 'Bronc' McCovey returns home from Virginia tourney

Roger ‘Bronc' McCovey, came home to a hero's welcome Saturday evening after earning All-American honors and taking third place at the National High School Coaches Association Junior National Wrestling Championship and Convention in Virginia Beach, Va. on Friday. More than 50 family members, friends and local fans lined South Beach next to the Beachcomber Restaurant with hand-painted signs to show support for McCovey. ‘He's tired and a little disappointed,' Teela Robison, McCovey's mother said. But holding his trophy as he stepped out of the truck, his faint smile grew to an ear-to-ear grin as his family and fans surrounded him.PHOTO: McCovey holds his trophy from the tournament.
