Plaque includes image of Lovell and a brief biography: "You could say that wrestling is Pat Lovell's middle name. In one way or another, he's been involved in the sport for a half-century. He got his start at Sequoia High School and progressed to the point where he was a member of the U.S. Olympic Team in 1964. He was also a standout football player. He played for Sequoia and later Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. He coached wrestling at Cabrillo College in Aptos for 25 years. As a wrestling official, he was the U.S. Wrestling Federation Official of the Year twice in the 1970s."
