Ellis Coleman was recently featured on the front page of the Sunday July 1st issue of the Chicago Tribune. The touching story chronicles Ellis’ accomplishments as a kid who struggled on the streets of Chicago just to stay out of harms way, to a wrestler who showed talent and determination from a young age. It discusses the victories he achieved in his personal life, as well as the courage it has taken his family to overcome the fate of the neighborhood they were born into.
