Inducted in 2013 at William Penn University Hall of Fame
Four-time NAIA wrestling All-American. One of only two athletes in school history to earn the All-American honors four times. Ranked nationally all four years and was only one of two wrestlers to ever be awarded conference or regional wrestler of the year. Holds six career school records.
I am a Coordinator for the Metro Atlanta Ymca wrestling program initiative to expand the reach of wrestling in the Atlanta community. Initially I joined the Y as a Wellness Coach getting my certification in the Foundations of Strength and Conditioning and also as a camp and after-school enrichment counselor. My background experience since graduating from college in 2007 has been in education. I taught middle school and high school at a private military school for 4 and half years, the past 3 years have been with the Y and helping to build the sport of wrestling into the Ymca regular sports program.
I am looking to make the YMCA also a testing ground for Sports science since the Metro Atlanta Y have changed the advancement of wellness in the community and is researching more ways to improve health in partnership with Emory and Children’s Healthcare of Georgia.
