CANISTEO, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Canisteo community joined together Tuesday night to remember a fallen hero. The Canisteo-Greenwood High School wrestling program honored New York State Trooper Nicholas Clark Tuesday evening.

The team presented a special wrestling mat dedicated to the NYS Trooper -- commemorating his legacy in the program. 

As we've reported, Clark was a New York State Champion wrestler back in 2006. The mat depicts a "thin blue line," which is symbolic of law enforcement, on the background of an outline of New York State. 

People who attended the dedication ceremony gave a standing round of applause when it was revealed.
