Coach Ward, and his staff, are doing great things at Army WP. In addition to putting together a top 25 recruiting class for this season, they are "teaching coaches" in the room. Coach Ward and his staff are on the mat working with their athletes in the room every day on cutting edge technique and skills.
As mentioned in his bio., Coach Ward wrestled at Oklahoma State under legendary coach John Smith. Coach Ward's experience at OSU is evident in his work ethic and mentoring of his athletes.
Throw on top of all of that the fact that there are 5 Indiana boys currently on the WP/USMAPS roster along with a new coach who also wrestled in Indiana (Atwood); with another IN senior commit for next season already. Coach Ward has a lot of respect for IN wrestling and has put his money where his mouth is in recruiting in our state.
I am looking forward to Coach Ward's sessions at our coaches' clinic this month. Should be some good stuff.
Thank you to the IHSWCA for bringing in a head coach from a U.S. Service Academy.
