After college, I continued the sport by coaching in a variety of high school programs.
Recently the sport came full circle. I now enjoy coaching my sons. Unlike their father, who started the sport late in life, began enjoying competition in first-grade. It is a pleasure to help them succeed and pass on the sport into their life.
In the 2007-2008 season, David, my older son, took 5th in the Michigan State finals and 1st in NUWAY National Championships. Daniel, my younger son, took 7th in the state finals and 7th in NUWAY nationals.
In the 2008-2009 season we moved to Iowa. David took 4th in USA Iowa State Finals. Daniel took 4th at Elementary and Grade School Iowa State Finals and 7th in AAU Iowa State Finals.
Currently David is a high school wrestler at Spirit Lake High School in Iowa. Daniel is a junior high wrestler for the same school district. I have the privilege of serving as an assistant coach for the wrestling team in that school system where I can invest in the lives of my sons and many others.
