Wrestling to the Top – from “Bigger Faster Stronger”

“I think it would be the coolest thing ever to win state titles in both football and wrestling in the same year,” says Struck. To accomplish that, he figured he needed to get more athletes playing multiple sports – only one football player was on the wrestling team when he started. Coach Struck started coaching high school football when he moved to Jeffersonville to show kids that not only were they going to play more than one sport but that he would too. He says, “Today on our wrestling team there are 25 football players, six soccer players, three cross-country runners and one volleyball player. Our kids know they have to do more than one sport to gain an edge. We like competing against wrestling teams that are onedimensional – we know we have more athletic skill sets to beat them with our multi-sport athletes.”
