Iíve had the opportunity of learning and coaching along side many great coaches over those years. Too many to name but special thanks in order:
Phil White(for starting our program), Bob Hensel and Mark Jones(both for coaching and RIP), Hans Magden(for helping me understand what it takes to be a coach), Dave Boor(for being a great friend and coach), Scott Shannon, Rudy Soliz, Jamie Dixon and the Cadet crew(for helping me coach my first Nationals team), Cleve Thompson and Neil Russo(for mentoring and dealing with my snoring), Steve Thorpe(for being a great friend), Steve Lander(for matching my humor) and Mike Simons(for all that PFS lol.)
And many, many more great coaches, parents and wrestlers over the years. Like I said, too many to name.
Whether we agree or not, let us all keep working on making wrestling as great as we can for Oregon.
Hereís to 2020 and another slew of great wrestlers.
