I wrestled high school in Indiana for Floyd Central and Jeffersonville High Schools where I was a two time Regional Qualifier and Hoosier Hills Conference runner up. I choked my senior year and was upset in the first round of Regionals so I decided to continue my career and moved on to college where I wrestled two years for Lindenwood Belleville University, a NAIA university located in the St. Louis metro. Unfortunately my college career was defined by injuries and after two years I was not able to be medically certified by the trainers to continue to compete.
After college wrestling I transitioned to coaching high school wrestling for Jeffersonville High School. I started as the Junior Varsity coach and am now both the Junior Varsity and Varsity B coach (at Jeffersonville there are three squads – Varsity, Varsity B, and JV where Varsity wrestles other varsity teams in Indiana, Varsity B wrestles varsity teams in Kentucky, and JV wrestles JV in both states). In my time at Jeffersonville, we have had two state qualifiers, one wrestler ranked in the top 10 in Indiana, and 11 wrestlers signing to colleges. Both state qualifiers started their careers off wrestling Varsity B for me. We have also won our Sectional.
As a coach I focus on neutral wrestling, attacking, and defensive (from neutral and bottom). I really try to create a more aggressive wrestler that revolves around a fast pace and good positioning.
I am available for private training at a facility of your choice or at Jeffersonville High School. Rate will depend on the hours and the frequency… I am open to what ever you want to focus on and the training revolves around technique and live wrestling.
