FCA Wrestling Board Member (since 2008)

Associate Director of Cyclone Regional Training Center


I was drawn to FCA Wrestling because of the vision to impact coaches. Coaches have the potential to have the greatest influence and impact on the student-athletes. The following scripture describes the leadership relationship and their impact on each other: ‘Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.’ (Proverbs 27:17)”
