    Camp Updates from Michigan and Michigan State

    I have so many great memories from wrestling camps. Meeting legends like Cael Sanderson or Kendall Cross, Carl Adams, J Robinson, Zeke Jones, and even playing ultimate frisbee against Greg Jones. But mostly these camps were for building stronger relationships with friends and teammates, getting some big wins, building technique and confidence, all the best parts of the sport. Back in my day, I had the pleasure of attending cams in West Virginia, Minnesota, Boston University, and Ann Arbor. Recently I had the chance to meet up with coaches and athletes in Michigan and Michigan State and catch up with how things are going with these programs.

    In Ann Arbor, I stopped in at their Elite Freestyle Camp, Folkstyle Camp, and Heavyweight Camps. At this stop, I had the chance to check out their weight room, and speak with Josh Churella, David Bolyard, Adam Coon, and Mason Parris. Enjoy some quick hitting interviews on their approach with their camps, and how some of these National Team members are going to continue to develop.

    In East Lansing, I was amazed when I got into the room to see that not only were the MSU wrestlers on the mats going live with the campers, but so were the coaches! I have been to many camps, but I can’t remember seeing this many coaches participating in live wrestling and being so committed to leading by example. I had a chance to bring this up in a Q&A, I interviewed Braden Stauffenberg and Jordan Hamden regarding their U20 and U23 Greco team spots, Layne Malczewski on his upcoming final year, and I spoke with Roger Chandler about their program.
