Personal Statement

I really just started coming into my own in middle school in 2020. My style has always been unorthodox so my Dad sent me to the best coaches he could find for that. I spent most of my childhood and middle school years going to NCAA Champion Mitch Clark's leg riding camps. I have travelled to work with Ben and Max Askren and will continue to do so as I love scrambling. Mike Krause was a very influential coach in my life and he believed in me during my awkward phases and encouraged me to keep at it. I also have a private Greco Roman coach, Ty WIldmo and study with him year round. My shot style is patterned after John Smith and we extensively work on his drills and skill building for the low single and the duck under. I plan to attend the Oklahoma State technique camps to try and work with John directly if they have those camps again.  

What my Dad was trying to do was expose me to the best coaches for the unorthodox instincts I had naturally rather then trying to discourage me from being myself as a wrestler.  Coach Tim Roberts from Dundee turned out to be a good fit as he is open minded and understands that wrestlers of different dispositions and body types are going to gravitate to different techniques.  We didn't just watch youtube videos of crazy stuff and try to make it work. We dug deep into the actual work needed to master these techniques. Unfortunately Tim retired right before I would have been able to wrestle for him. 

The wrestlers I most admire are Jason Nolf, Bo Nickal, Ben Askren, Mitch Clark, John Smith, and J'Den Cox. And they have all had a big influence on my style.
