Clift Georgaklis '82

Class of 2010

Football, Wrestling, Lacrosse 

Clift Georgaklis is the best wrestler in the history of the Nobles program and the most winning wrestler in ISL history. In his time at Nobles, he won four consecutive Independent School League championships, four consecutive Graves Kelsey tournament championships, a New England championship, and in 1982, Clift's senior year, he won the National Prep Championship at 149 pounds. He is the only ISL wrestler to ever accomplish all of those feats. Clift finished his career with more than 100 career wins, a truly astonishing accomplishment, and he never lost a dual meet in his weight class in five years on the varsity team.

Along with his great wrestling abilities, he was also a great leader and captained the team his senior year. Steve Toubman has coached wrestling at Nobles for 29 years and has never seen a wrestler like Clift. Toubman says, "Clift merits selection to the first Hall of Fame class as one of the most accomplished athletes ever to participate in varsity sports at Nobles." Clift also played varsity lacrosse and football at Nobles.

He went to Yale to continue his wrestling career where he was one of the top wrestlers in the Ivy League. He was All-Ivy at 142 and 150 pounds with a 15-2 record in his MVP senior year.
