As head coach, I couldn’t be more proud of how the Yorktown Wrestling Program has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite not having a season we remained focused on building off of our 2019-2020 successes. Our coaches have used the past year as an opportunity to work on five of the seven essentials of wrestling as described by Dan Gable: Strength; Conditioning; Flexibility; Nutrition and Attitude. 71% of what makes us great wrestlers happens off the mat. We have kept training and learning and will start the 2021-2022 season as a stronger and more motivated team. In the meantime let’s keep training, stay focused and stay hungry.
Let’s go above and
beyond for the team.

BUILDING CHAMPION WRESTLERS
Wrestling is a sport that prepares student athletes for lifelong success by building character through hard work. Our team values discipline, success, academics and sportsmanship.
When I joined the team as a freshman, the constant losses and intense workouts made me think the sport wasn’t for me. The coaching staff refused to let me give up on myself, and pushed me beyond my self-imposed limits. They turned me from a novice wrestler to one of the best in the state in a very short period of time.
