In this episode of the Step1.coach Podcast, I sit down with high school wrestling coach Mike Jones. Coach Jones has been in education for over 30 years as a teacher, coach, and principal. Before entering the education field, he was a scholarship athlete for the legendary wrestling program at Oklahoma State University. He talks about what it was like to practice alongside some of the best wrestlers in the country, like Kenny Monday and Mike Sheets. We also talk about what he’s learned over his long career and how he’s approaching the challenge of starting a high school wrestling program from scratch. This is an opportunity to gain some valuable insights from a Hall of Fame wrestler, Gallagher Award winner, and a veteran coach. Enjoy!
