My Students

I am proud to be a wrestling coach for one of the largest districts in central Illinois. Our athletes behave more like a family than like students. We know and care for one another from the newest freshman to the graduating senior.

While we are a tight-knit group, we struggle to compete with similar size programs when it comes to facilities and equipment.

We don't have a dedicated wrestling room. During the season, we will practice in at least 3 different locations. Much of the equipment and facility items that we desire simply are not possible due to the lack of a stable location to practice.

My Project

The wrestling season is right around the corner and our program needs your help to get us started off on the right foot. The equipment we are asking for is essential to our continued success. Wrestling scales and mat transporters are used on a daily basis, and ours have reached the point where they need some repairs. Currently we are looking to fix our existing equipment with new batteries and new wheels. makes it easy to donate to our program.

Whether a few dollars or $50, your contribution will help us continue to be one of the top programs in the central Illinois area. Thank you for your consideration, and GO IRON!
