A little history; Payson has won ten state titles, and over 25 region titles. Payson was once named "Small Town Wrestling Capital in America".
We have sent kids on to all levels of wrestling from JUCO to NCAA Div 1 institutes. We would love for a coach to come bring us back into prominence. Our middle school program numbers have grown from about 18 two years ago to over 35 this last season. We currently have a strong elementary following as well. Our current head coach accepted the head football position, so you will have someone at the helm of our football program that is very supportive of football players wrestling. Our AD is also a past head wrestling coach as well. You would already have some outstanding assistants to help build the program. We also host a great varsity tournament every year, and a JV one as well. About every other year we also host our middle school league championship tournament .
