What the Coaches are Saying...
Sep 25, 2018

“Jim, I think that is a perfect response for recruits. We will do our best to find the right fit for you, athletically, spiritually, and academically. I will list those weights as roster openings now. Drew ”

—Coach Jim Gruenwald
Sep 11, 2018

“Wheaton College is an academically prestigious non-denominational Christian Liberal Arts College located 25 miles west of Chicago, IL. Although not a Bible College, Wheaton does require a Statement of Faith and a pastor's recommendation. As a coach, I am looking for intelligent young men of faith interested in an environment that will sharpen their character i.e. who they are spiritually, physically, intellectually, and emotionally. The goal of the program is to make wrestling champions while preparing you to serve God in any field of study or career choice: Businessmen, teachers, politicians, clergymen, scientiest, etc. Any wrestlers interested in developing a closer walk with God, being intense, having fun, and getting a great college educaiton should fill out the Recruit Questionnaire and apply to Wheaton.”

—Coach Jim Gruenwald
