Hey all, hope you’re all well and enjoying summer! I wanted to check in and send some updates on things.
Academics--First off, I’m sure you’re all aware by now that the 1st official day of virtual school is Aug. 17th. I go back tomorrow for training for the next 3 weeks. I’ll be sure to keep you all posted on how the structure will work and what student expectations will be. I’ve been given no timeline as to how long virtual school will last.
Sports—Fall sports are starting. Cross County, volleyball, softball, and cheer are starting on time. Football games have been pushed back 2 weeks, but practice starts tomorrow morning. Obviously things are very fluid and can change daily, but at the time of me typing this, there has been zero mention of changing/cancelling wrestling in Georgia. I know some states have altered their seasons, but as of 7/26/20, we are still planning on a full GA season. (I’ve attached our schedule). I’m sure I’ll be getting regular updates on how our season will look and I’ll share immediately with you all.
LHS Wrestling News:
1-RJ, David, Frankie, Jacobee, Jack, and my 2 boys wrestled for Level Up Friday and Saturday at the Deep South Duals in Birmingham. It was great to see live wrestling going on finally. The Level Up Elementary/Middle School team won the Silver Pool and the Level Up High School team won the whole tournament going undefeated!
2-The wrestling room will look different this year. We added about 1,000 sq ft of mat space, 2 big wall boards recognizing our youth and hs state place winners, and close to $2,000 of exercise equipment!
3-Our wrestlers will look different on the mat. We ordered brand new custom Rudis singlets for the varsity team. We’ll also be placing a spirit wear order with Rudis sometime in mid to late September. (I’ve attached the form).
4- Our staff will look different this year. Head Football Coach Sean Thom will be joining our staff! I’m very excited to get his energy in the room! Myself, Coach Brown, Coach Stu, and Coach Thom currently make up our HS staff. I’ve talked with a few potential community coaches as well, but nothing firm yet. My goal is to have 5 to 1 athlete/coach ratio.
5- Unfortunately, no wrestling activities have been approved yet on campus. Level Up has been a great resource for our wrestlers during all of this! Please visit http://levelupwrestling.com/ for schedules or email email@example.com with questions.
Finally, please feel free to email or call me (330) 774-5471 with any questions or concerns. Be it academic or athletics, I’ll be readily available to help out. We’ll make it all through this together and hopefully get back to a normal way of things soon! Stay safe!
