Lindenwood wrestling head coach Jimmy Rollins has announced the newest addition to the coaching staff. Jonce Blaylock will join the wrestling program after spending the last five years as a wrestler at Oklahoma State University.
"We are very excited to have Jonce coming aboard to help our program achieve new levels of success," said Rollins. "He comes from a tremendous program at Oklahoma State, and brings a competitive attitude and eagerness to get to work. I was able to watch him as an athlete throughout his career, and I know he has the ability to be a tremendous coach."
Blaylock was a four-year letter winner with the Cowboys, accumulating 77 wins in his five years with the program. Blaylock was a part of five Big 12 team titles, and four top-10 team finishes at the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. In 2017-18, Blaylock earned first-team all-academic Big 12 honors along with being named to the NWCA all-academic team.
"I'm excited to join the Lindenwood staff, especially after meeting with coach Rollins," said Blaylock. "I really bought into where his is taking the program, and I look forward to being a part of the process."
In his high school career, Blaylock was a three-time state champion in the state of Oklahoma. Blaylock was a Cadet and Junior Freestyle All-American, and a Junior Folk Style All-American. A graduate of Berryhill High School, Blaylock competed at the Dapper Dan while representing the state of Oklahoma.
