Lovello is The Morning Call's Class 2A coach of the year. March 27, 2006From The Morning Call In December 2005, Sam Lovello, then 58, was rolling around the mats with some of his wrestlers at Brandywine Heights High School and felt a tingling in his left arm.No big deal, he thought.Just aches and pains of an older body working out with young men.Then the cold sweats started.During workouts."I thought it was old age," joked Lovello, now 59."My wife talked me into going to the doctor.We did a stress test.I had a blockage, and they put a stent in."A few days later, Lovello was back on the mats, demonstrating closed-eye jumping jacks for the team, when the clot sealing the hole where the catheter had been inserted in his inguinal artery broke."I was just showing them what I wanted, and PLOP," he remembered."Blood everywhere.I had to stay on the couch for two days with a heavy bag on it."Lovello recovered just fine, though, and Brandywine wrestling fans are glad he did.This season, Lovello led the team to a 21-1 record, won the Berks County League title, and qualified six wrestlers for the PIAA Class 2A tournament.But that's only part of it.With a win over Kutztown, Lovello collected a major milestone, his 400th career victory.The Bullets also picked up the 450th win in school history, a feat honored by being listed in the state tournament program.For his achievements, but more importantly, for his compassion for the young men in his charge, Lovello is The Morning Call's Class 2A coach of the year."I am humbled," he said when told of his second such selection (he also won in 2003).I went up to Sam and congratulated him on the 400 wins at regionals.Sam pulled me aside and said I was on to something.He said we beat some of his best kids.He gave me a lot of incentive to keep working hard at it."That's the thing about Lovello, his attitude."You won't see him get angry often during a match," said John Toggas, the former Parkland head coach who has served as Lovello's assistant for the past four years."Like most good coaches, they do their work before a match.They look up to him and like him a lot."And Lovello likes them back.A sixth-grade English and social studies teacher at Brandywine, Lovello enjoys being around the kids."I always got along with the kids," Lovello said.Lovello agreed that this season certainly had some memorable highlights.Lovello, who has coached at Brandywine since 1975 except for two years at Wilson of West Lawn in the mid-1980s, figures he has four more years left in his tenure.He's got a bumper crop of eighth-graders ready to move up, and he's looking forward to helping them reach the top step at the state tournament."I still believe every time we go out there, we're going to bring [a champion] back," he said.gary.blockus@mcall.com

As an eerie silence fell on a once-wild gymnasium, Brandywine Heights coach Sam Lovello knew his team's season of living on the edge was over.As Lovello and Delone coach John Hefner went through the tiebreaking rules with officials, fans waited anxiously for the outcome to be announced.But Lovello knew all too well that his top-seeded Bullets had just lost to eighth-seeded Delone on criteria D, most technical falls.Neither team lost a team point, both won seven bouts and each had four six-point wins (fall or forfeit)."I knew we lost; I was just hoping I could steal one," Lovello said.The Bullets (22-1) had been winning with smoke and mirrors to cover a gaping hole of inexperience from 119 pounds to 140.Almost everything had to fall right for the Bullets to defend their 3-AA title.Instead, one of the strategic moves Lovello is known for backfired as the Squires (19-4) avenged last year's loss in the 3-AA title match and advanced to Saturday's 3-AA semifinals to face Hanover, a 38-23 winner over Hamburg."You gamble sometimes and you lose," Lovello said."I can't second-guess myself."I can't fault Kyle," Lovello said.

Sam LovelloBrandywine Heights As Brandywine Heights coach Sam Lovello nears 400 career wins and Schuylkill Valley coach Duane Maurer closes in on 300, the two rivals will continue to battle for supremacy in Berks III. In the case of Brandywine Heights' Sam Lovello and Schuylkill Valley's Duane Maurer, make that collide.Lovello needs 15 wins to reach 400 for his career; Maurer is three wins shy of 300."We get along OK since I had that flare-up in the locker room," Lovello said."We've been nice to each other.Maurer and Lovello became rivals almost immediately after Maurer arrived at Schuylkill Valley after a successful run at Pine Grove.Lovello already had one of the dominant Class AA teams in Berks.He had the Bullets in the Berks championship match in each of the two years prior to Maurer's arrival.In 17 head-to-head matches during their 12 years in the same division, Lovello holds a 12-5 advantage over Maurer."It's one of those rivalry matches," Lovello said."You never know."Despite the rivalry and their previous differences, Maurer acknowledges Lovello is a wrestling ambassador for Berks County.Lovello, a Reading High grad, has been a Berks wrestling fixture for 30 years.He has been inducted into the Pennsylvania Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame and will join even more elite company with 15 wins.With 10 starters back from a team that went 18-4 last year, Lovello is likely to reach that milestone before the end of the season."It's a big important goal because it puts me up with some pretty big coaches, some coaches that I really look up to," Lovello said.Maurer, a Tri-Valley grad, downplays his pursuit of the 300th victory that will make him a lock to join Lovello in the PWCA Hall.
