Matt Dragon 

Head Coach - Black Room

Background:

  • Lake Lehman High School 2002-2005

  • University of Pennsylvania 2005-2010. 

Honors:

  • 3 x PIAA place-winner (5th 2003, 3rd 2004, 1st 2005), 4X District 2 Champ, 3X NE Regional Champ.

  • 8 time Fargo National Freestyle and Greco Roman place-winner

  • Cadet National Champ ’03 both styles & ’05 Junior runner up in both styles

  • 166-11 High School Record 

  • University of Pennsylvania NCAA D1: 3 x Team Captain.

  • 4 x EIWA place-winner (2 x Champion).

  • 3 x NCAA Qualifier (round of 12)

Philosophy: I believe work hard, play hard. Youth wrestling should be fun. It’s important to maintain a balance between engaging and challenging so that our kids develop a passion for the sport. I care less about the wins & losses and more about what our kids are gaining in return.  Building a strong foundation is the key to future success. I believe wrestling is a compounding sport; the more you put in, the more you get out. What you learn in wrestling goes beyond the mat. It’s our job as coaches to make sure every day our kids get better not only as wrestlers, but as young men and women. I’m excited to be part of this growing program and hope to leave a positive impact for our wrestlers.
