RED OAK -- There are some familiar faces this season within the Northern Nash High School wrestling program.
They just aren't in the same positions anymore.
In the past, Corey Mercer has been in charge of the successful program, and even helped the Knights win the Big East Conference Championship four years ago.
But Mercer, due to increased responsibilities with his full-time job, stepped down as Northern's head coach in the off-season.
