Two-sport athlete credits
leg strength for his success.
Special to The Jewish News
able tennis and wrestling
seem like they belong at
opposite ends of the sports
But Bloomfield Hills Andover High
School senior Danny Dulkin excels
in both of them, and he doesn't think
that's a coincidence.
"You have to have
strong legs to do well
in both sports," said
Dulkin, who was a
member of the win-
team in Division 7 at
the North American
Teams Table Tennis
Thanksgiving weekend in Baltimore.
Dulkin also is a four-time state
table tennis champion and he's been
to Romania three times to train in
that country's Olympic facilities. Jon
Bosika, Dulkin's table tennis coach,
takes a group of his students to
Romania every year.
Dulkin attended the legendary
University of Minnesota wrestling
coach J Robinson's intensive 28-day
camp last summer.
"The camp was the toughest experi-
ence of my life, but now I feel like I
have an encyclopedic knowledge of
wrestling and I'm in great shape said
Dulkin, an Andover co-captain.
Dulkin had a 9-4 record in the 130-
pound weight class at the start of the
new year. He made it to the second day
of the Oakland County tournament for
the first time in his three seasons on
the Andover team, and Andover Coach
Darren Avig is sure more accomplish-
ments are on the horizon.
Dulkin also has a black belt in tae-
kwondo that he earned when he was
8, but this young man doesn't just
excel in sports. He plays trumpet in
the Andover marching and symphony
bands that performed in London,
England, during the New Year break.
What does the future hold for the
multi-talented 17-year-old? With a
3.4 grade point, Dulkin hopes to be
accepted into the Naval Academy
or the Navy's ROTC program at the
University of Colorado, University of
Illinois or University of Minnesota.
