Work History
09/2020 to Current
Coach and Director of Operations Falcon School District 49 Peyton, CO,

  • Achieved team goals through formalized training plans, coaching and performance management.
  • Teaching strategies and techniques to optimize my athletes performances.
  • Travel across the country in pursuit of the best competition and training partners with my team.
  • Fund raise to help assist families with the cost of traveling to national events.
  • Providing a safe and inclusive environment.
  • Assisted in recruiting, hiring and training of team members.
  • Handled problematic customers and clients to assist lower-level employees and maintain excellent customer service.
  • Build a program from the ground up. I had two long term goals for my wrestling program.

- (1.) First and foremost, I wanted to create an environment that is inclusive for all ages, abilities, genders, & race. This is of upmost importance to me because by providing this type of environment, I am better able to positively impact each and every one of my students. Wrestling has provided me with more tools to become successful than any other person and or activity and in turn, I am determined to introduce this sport to as many human beings as possible. My wrestling program has three age groups/skill levels.

Our beginner’s group, in which we call our ninjas, are for students who are ages 6-10 years old. These practices are structured towards developing our students psychomotor skills and learning the basics of wrestling. During these practices you’ll see more gymnastic type exercises than wrestling drills. Our overall goal for this age group it to help students develop their basic motor skills, hand eye coordination and core strength all while the students have fun. Through my “kidsnastics” exercise program, students gain confidence which I believe to be the most important attribute that any kid can be given. My students and their families are discouraged from competing simply because progression isn’t best measured through wins and loses and competition brings out the worst in most parents which negatively impacts my students growth and love for the sport. Practices are held once during the spring and summer and twice throughout the fall and winter seasons.

Our next age group are for students ages 10-12 years old. At the stage, practices start to become more serious and structure. This is the stage in which I encourage my athletes to wrestle only local tournaments and no more than 20 matches a year. Also, this is the age in which I introduce freestyle and Greco wrestling. I hold practice three times a week for fall, winter and spring seasons and twice during the summer. One of the major skills I work on within this age group is self reflection after each practice. With some guidance, students start becoming more and more proficient at being able to diagnose mistakes and or skills that they need to improve on.

Our last age group is more based around skill level and overall love and commitment of the sport. This group is directly related to my second long term/ overall goal. (See below) Within this group, practices are very structured and I provide time slots for individual workouts as well. This team will compete at High school nationals, Fargo, Disney duals along with their high school and or college seasons. My responsibilities here are simply to help my athletes become age level national and world champions. Along with molding them into well rounded people: I stress the importance of being winners on and off the mat. If my athletes are solely winning on the mat but falling short in every other aspect of their lives, then frankly, they are losing.

(2.) Secondly, I set out to help those who have aspirations to become NCAA Champions and Olympic champions an environment in which they can achieve these lifelong goals.
