Arizona State University Wrestling Clinic

[move]Arizona State University Wrestling Clinic - September 6th - $40 - ages 5-18 @ Warren Central H.S.[/move]





In light of our recent success at the 2014 Asics/Vaughan Cadet and Junior National Championships, more of the country’s top wrestling programs are turning their eye towards Indiana.  One of these programs are the Sun Devils of Arizona State University.  With past success including 2010 National Champions Anthony Robles and Bubba Jenkins, they have recently turned the corner with the hiring of USA Olympic Freestyle Coach and World Champion Zeke Jones this summer, who comes off of coaching the USA Olympians in the 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2012 Olympic Games.  Under his tenure, the US has placed seventh, fifth and third in the World Championships, as well as achieving five individual World Champion medals, including two-time World Champion Jordan Burroughs.  During the Jones era, USA has placed sixth in 2010 and third in 2012 and 2013 at the Freestyle World Cups, won 8 Junior World medals, five University World medals and four Cadet World medals.


Before taking the challenge of redirecting the US Freestyle Program, Coach Jones coached at University of Pennsylvania, and was on staffs at West Virginia, Arizona State and Bloomsburg University.  Jones coached teams have finished in the NCAA Final Four twice, in the top-10 four times and won six conference team championships.  Individually his wrestlers have won six NCAA titles, eight NCAA finalist, 36 individual conference champions, 29 All- Americans, 74 NCAA Qualifiers, and 11 wrestlers have competed in the NWCA All Star Meet.


Coach Jones’ presence at Arizona State has already been felt as they hosted the 2014 World Team Training Camp and recently signed two-time NCAA Champion Chris Pendleton from Oklahoma State to join the coaching staff.  They have also begun solidifying their ascension toward the nation’s elite with the signings of both #1 ranked Zahid Valencia and Anthony Valencia of Bosco, California.  Again, with Indiana’s recent success, and because he will be at the World Championships in Uzbekistan on September 6th, Coach Jones still wants to tap into Indiana’s market and is sending his right-hand man, Head Assistant Coach Lee Pritts to run a clinic JUST for Indiana!!


This clinic is open to all entrants ages 5-18, so be sure to bring your wrestler for a fun and informative time with one of the top wrestling programs in the country, as well as one of the top staffs in IPWA.  There are many wrestlers signed up for this to both fine tune and manage any weight before the Indianamat Preseason Open.  Weigh ins for the IPO start Saturday, September 6th from 6pm-9pm.

Featured Clinician:


Lee Pritts, Head Assistant Coach, Arizona State University


Coach Pritts is highly regarded as one of the top recruiters in college wrestling with a knack for identifying talent.  Prior to his time at Arizona State, he spent time at NC State, University of Missouri, and Old Dominion, forging a reputation of consistent top-10 classes of numerous high school All-Americans and/or multiple –time state champions.  His recruiting skills aren't the only thing that has paid off as his coaching skills are just as impressive.  He has coached multiple NCAA qualifiers, All-Americans and National Champions, including both 2x NCAA Champion Ben and NCAA Champion Max Askren, as well as Junior World Champion Dom Bradley.  Pritts himself was 3x NCAA Qualifier and All-American for Eastern Michigan University.


IPWA Staff will also be in attendance:


Nick Hull – Hull, former IHSAA State Champion, is currently an ISWA Board Member and Greco Roman Director for Indiana, helping spearhead Indiana's Regional Training Center Program, and has served as the Assistant Team Leader and Coach for Team Indiana at the USAW Folkstyle Nationals in Iowa, Schoolboy National Duals in Indiana, Cadet National Duals in Florida, Junior National Duals in Oklahoma, and the Junior and Cadet Nationals in Fargo.  He was the 2011 ISWA Cadet & Junior Coach of the Year, represented Indiana at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs for the 2011 Fall Coaching Clinic, and has coached numerous National Champions, All-Americans, State Champions, State Place winners, etc.  He is internationally certified in Freestyle by FILA, and was most recently named the 2014 USAW National Developmental Coach of the Year.


Steven Bradley - A native and legend of Indiana, Coach Bradley was an undefeated 3x IHSAA State Champion for Beech Grove HS. He was a Cadet National Champion, multiple time All-American and was one of the top wrestlers in the country upon graduation.  He wrestled at Oklahoma State under legendary coach John Smith his first year in college before transferring to Lincoln College, where he was a National runner-up in 2000 for the Lynx. After graduation from Lincoln, Coach Bradley transferred to University of Indianapolis for a year before his college career was cut short due to injury. He served the last four years as Assistant Coach for Indy before going back to Lincoln where he eventually took over as Head Coach. In that time he helped produce 28 collegiate All-Americans and consistently had one of the highest program GPA's in the country. Bradley was inducted into the Indiana Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2007.


Shane Perkey - Coach Perkey comes to Indiana Pride with a great prep and collegiate career, both as wrestler and coach.  He came to us after spending several years as an assistant coach at Lindsey Wilson College and University of Indianapolis.  As a wrestler he competed at University of Indianapolis finishing with a 149-23 record as the school’s first and only 4x All-American, and ending his career as a runner-up and 3x 4th place finisher.  Hailing from Jimtown High School, Coach Perkey tallied an impressive 163-13 record placing 3rd and 5th, losing to eventual Indiana phenom Angel Escobedo.  Coach Perkey brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to the Indiana Pride Academy staff and has been an exceptional addition in relation to our members and parents.  Currently Coach Perkey is training at Indy Boxing & Grappling pursuing his MMA career.


Katie Kriebel -  Without a doubt, Indiana Hall of Fame Coach Kriebel (formerly Downing) is easily the most decorated athlete at IPWA coming in as a 3x World Medalist.  She began wrestling her freshman year at Pendleton Heights where she eventually won the 1998 USWGA National Champions.  She moved on to wrestle at University of Minnesota-Morris where she tallied 98 wins, was on 4 U.S. National Teams, and finished her college career by winning the 2002 U.S. World Team Trials.  She pursued her career on the Senior circuit where she was one of the best athletes in the world.  She was an Olympic Training center resident for years and captured multiple national and international championships.  After her extensive travels, she moved back to Pendleton Heights where she is now the Assistant Coach for the Arabians.  She has helped numerous athletes across the country and IPWA is fortunate to have her as her knowledge, technique and overall experience on the international level is invaluable.


Mark Friend - Coach Friend comes to IPWA via Libertyville, Illinois where he and his family have an extensive history.  His prep career was successful as a three-time state qualifier, a runner-up at 160 pounds at the 2004 Illinois State Championships, and was an Academic Honor Roll member.  Coach Friend also excelled in freestyle and Greco-Roman competition winning both Illinois state titles in 2002, was a two-time freestyle All-American finishing eighth at the 2003 Junior High School Nationals and seventh at the 2004 Senior High School Nationals, finished fifth at the 2002 Greco-Roman Junior World Team Trials, second in freestyle and fourth in Greco-Roman at the 2003 Junior Southeast Regionals, second at the 2003 Tulsa Folkstyle Nationals and third at the 2003 AAU Folkstyle Nationals. He finished his competitive career as a 3 year starter for Penn State University, where he graduated in 2009.
