Ervin, an assistant high school wrestling coach at Union County High School in Kentucky, joined his daughter Mallory, the 2009 Miss Kentucky and Miss America runner-up, in the race last year. The duo was eliminated in the eighth week of the show, but got a second chance to come back for this past season, which completed its airings on CBS on Sunday.
Jason Bryant of USA Wrestling talked to Ervin, a Central Missouri alum and former graduate assistant wrestling coach in Warrensburg, about the the entire two seasons and how deeply-rooted wrestling is within the Ervin family — even for Mallory.
