Rockford Varsity Wrestling

  • Overall Record: N/A
  • Conference Record: N/A


  • A statement about what will drive me, about what I want to accomplish.

My desire is to make the Rockford Wrestling program be a true model of quality and consistency by being one of the top teams in the state year in and year out. I want to see our program gain national recognition for our wrestlers so that we consistently move our top high school athletes into collegiate level programs. We must also equip all of our athletes with the tools to become young men of integrity. Tools that will ultimately help them to correctly handle the challenges they will face in college, the work force, and their marriages. I visualize Rockford as being the model program in the state of Michigan in the areas of of competitiveness, sportsmanship, teamwork and above all character.
