My Coaching wrestling definition: coaching young wrestlers is so much more then teaching them the sport for 4 years and sending them off.
As a coach you are able to help them through the bad times and keep them humble through the good. You can help them see the life lessons and not just the sport.
Build the relationship where 20 years after they have graduated they want to tell you about the boss, employee, husband, and father they have become.
Wrestling is a life class that can prepare you for the toughest real life battles.
“I’m a big believer in starting with high standards and raising them.
We make progress only when we push ourselves to the highest level. If we don’t progress, we backslide into bad habits, laziness and poor attitude.” -Dan gable
I coach to have a positive impact on the sport and the athletes. I am a firm believer and preacher of accountability.
We are all only as good as our word.
I believe that anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.
If nothing changes, nothing changes.
- J Robinson
I coach to give back in the same way my coaches passed on their knowledge to me.
"Life's battles don't always go to the stronger or faster man, because sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can"
Wrestling has always been a huge part of my life, whether it be wrestling my brothers in the basement growing up, to participating in the youth and high school programs, to creating friendships and memories that’ll last a lifetime.
I strive to push student-athletes to their lively potential, while still giving them the proper support they need in order to be successful in both the wrestling room and the classroom.
I am passionate about creating high integrity and hard-working young adults. I will use my knowledge and first-hand experiences to guide the student-athletes to a level of success I see them capable of.
“Score first, score often, score last. Never feel satisfied with the result”.
With wrestling everyone builds character.
Your attitude towards the sport is a reflection on your attitude with life. When I coach i strive to build relationships with every individual so they’re coached the way they need to be coached.
Every year I coach I look forward to learning something new and do my best to use what I know to teach and develop to each and every individual on their specific style of wrestling.
Every new year brings in new opportunity for us to expand and grow individually and as a team.
