My Students

This diverse, dedicated group of athletes has come together with the primary goal of developing and strengthening themselves not just as wrestlers but as productive young men and women. My athletes work hard on and off the wrestling mats building their growth mindset, academic successes, and prepare themselves for the world beyond school.

The mission of FCHS’s Wrestling Program is to build the mind, body, and spirit of the student-athlete by inspiring positive attitudes, physical discipline, and passion for success on and off the mat.

Our team, oftentimes, goes without the proper equipment to help prepare for a successful wrestling season.

My student-athletes work tirelessly, and I would like to help provide them with these essential materials.

My Project

I have the unique opportunity to work with a diverse group of student-athletes as the Head Wrestling Coach. Any seasoned wrestling coach will tell you that wrestling guarantees upper mobility, resilience and the ability to persevere in the face of adversity. In order to participate, my student-athletes need the basic gear to compete. Unfortunately, my athletes often do not have the funds to purchase wrestling shoes.

Having access to the necessary shoes gets these athletes on the mat and learning the vital lessons wrestling teaches.

Wrestlers use their shoes every day for practice and in matches and tournaments. Having wrestling shoes is one of the basic requirements to compete. Know that your donation gets a young man or young woman in the sport of wrestling, and therefore, changing their lives.

I cannot say this enough to those who will listen: wrestling changed my life for the better. I belonged to something bigger than myself, and I learned I could do hard things. Help my student-athletes get on the mat with the proper shoes!
