  Randy's Wrestling Philosophy
I have Trained many athletes for many years, and can tell you, in short, what it takes to win at wrestling: physical and mental toughness, hard training, and excellent technique. The best do this and live this. They go the extra mile - literally - running early in the morning before anyone is up. Pushing harder when they are tired. Doing things right. Basically, doing what others aren't willing to do. Those are the guys that win the close matches when they have to, the guys that own the 3rd period.

Attack System Training

Just as important as training hard, is training right. That's where my Attack System comes into play. The keys to winning in wrestling are handfighting and positioning. Our Attack System Philosophy is: Anytime opponents put their hands on us, they give us a scoring opportunity.

There are three fundamental elements to the Attack System:
1. Position yourself so you can't be attacked
2. Shut down your opponent's offense from every position
3. Break your opponent so you can score

If you decide to train with me

I've trained many state champs and state placers through the years. I've had trainees go on to earn All-American status at every level of collegiate wrestling. I still train many of the state's top athletes. However, you do not have to already be the best to work with me. Most of my most successful athletes started with me when they were young and/or not so successful. But if you want to win, you need to be willing to work for it. The type of individuals I like to train are hard-working, disciplined, clean-cut athletes.

My Wrestling Background

I was a Collegiate All-American in the 80's. My belief in hard work and clean lifestyle mirrors my own methods of achieving success. My 3rd place finish in the NCAA Nationals was followed by a 4th place finish in the Olympic Regionals in Atlanta in 1988, and a 2nd place finish in the Iowa Olympic Regionals in 1992. I also won the AAU Senior Nationals around that time and was awarded the MVP award for the tournament.

My Coaching and writing background

After spending 6 years as an assistant, I was head coach at Capital University from June 1993 until the program was eliminated following the 2001 season. The program (and the school) received national recognition by garnering two All-Americans in 1999, placing Capital in the Top 20 in the nation. The team was also ranked in the top 20 for much of the 2000 season. This recognition for a sports team at Capital was rare for this highly competitive academic institution, a school with little or no emphasis on athletic success. Only one other program on Capital's campus had finished in the Top 20 in the nation in the previous 15 years. I was proud of the team's achievements while there at my alma mater, but the school didn't share my commitment to winning. Since the program was dropped in 2001, I have had the opportunity to do what I do best - train athletes to win - on a full-time basis.

I have also written articles for several outlets, including Intermat and The Wrestling Mall, and covered some events for such as the Ohio High School State Tournament. I have also appeared on Takedown Radio with Scott Casber numerous times, including a series of technique programs in 2005. In the past several years, I have covered the State Tournament on behalf of this website, with articles, videos, pictures and results. Our Results Page combines with our Wrestlers Corner page to give wrestlers results as well as Event Info.
