I started wrestling in the Lebanon Mat Club when I was five years old. My dad (Mark Cox), Jim Phillips, and Bud Pulliam started the Lebanon Mat Club in the late 1970's. I then wrestled all four years at Lebanon High School.  After college, I had coaching stops at West Albany High School, Sprague High School, and Woodburn High School before taking the Head Wrestling Coach position at Lebanon High School, 17 years ago.  

A fun fact about myself is that I was 2 weeks late for my 1st teaching job because I was stranded in the Virgin Islands due to the attack on the U.S. on September 11th, 2001. Ironically, Tatum, my daughter, was born 11 years later, on September 11.

I started with Lebanon Wrestling as a volunteer coach when my son was 5 years old. While volunteering I realized how much I missed the sport of wrestling and thought I might be able to help the kids in a bigger role as head coach. When the opportunity to apply for the job arose I took it. Since then I have been the mat club coach, middle school coach, and a high school assistant coach.

 

When my son graduated I stepped away to focus on my family and my professional career. After 4 years absence my love for wrestling and coaching has brought me back. I am excited to be a part of Warrior Wrestling again and look forward to passing on my knowledge of the sport and the important life lessons it has taught me that I value to this day.

 

Fun fact about me is I would not be able to do any of this without the love and support of my beautiful wife and children!

My involvement in wrestling began in 2000 when I became a stat girl for the LHS wrestling team. A little over 10 years later, while my oldest son, Tanner, was in the Lebanon Mat Club, I was privilege with becoming the President. I served for several years until we moved away for a bit. When we moved back and Tanner began high school, I began helping out with the LHS wrestling team again. Now that my two younger boys, Trevathian and Kalais, are old enough to wrestle, I am back to assist the Mat Club and accomplish some goals that we didn't hit the first time around.

 

I truly believe that wrestling can be a pathway to a better life for so many young men and women; the lessons that are taught on and off the mat will remain valuable throughout a lifetime. I am so involved because I love sharing the passion that I have for wrestling with everyone I can. Warrior Wrestling truly is a family to me and I am forever grateful for all the people I have in my life because of it.

A fun fact about myself is that I have climbed Mt. Vesuvius in Italy.

I got involved with wrestling only a couple of years ago when my son was a freshman at Lebanon High School and started wrestling to stay in shape and become a better football player. He actually had a great first season, even going to state. My daughters also love it and are now stat girls. We have been a wrestling family ever since and it is our favorite sport! I truly feel there is something special about the lessons that wrestling teaches you, and our Warrior family is wonderful!  

I started helping with high school tournaments, even helping with Mat Club ones last season, since I am at them all anyway. I have a background in management and event/seminar planning and love doing things like that. I feel that my organizational skill set and background can be a benefit to helping to further the goals of the Lebanon Mat Club. I am excited to see how we can grow!

Fun fact about me is that I backpacked around Europe for a month.

I grew up watching my little brother Andy wrestle from 6U all the way to senior in high school! I started out as the big sis forced to watch every Saturday, to helping at the home tournaments, joining fundraising events, etc. From my eighth-grade year on, I have yet to miss a season of wrestling! Lebanon Warrior Wrestling has been a part of my family for about twelve years now and I currently have two little dudes that wrestle, Liam and Emmit!

I wanted to be part of something as an adult, that I grew up involved in when I was younger, and something I plan on being involved in for years to come! I know I can help this program grow because I grew up here, I know our community, and I want to be involved in making sure our kiddos and parent’s love this sport as much as we do. I am a go getter, dedicated, and passionate about these kids and the growth of this program!

Fun fact: I am 28 years old; I have 3 boys! I am a stay-at-home mama, as well as the bookkeeper for our business – Blas Valley Tint.

Wrestling has been in my husband's family from my father-in-law to my husband and now Keystin! Keystin started wrestling when he 4 years old, fast forward to now he’s 10 years old and is very competitive! He loves the sport! 

 

I figured since I am always helping out in wrestling this would be a great opportunity to make this experience for kids a great one and help make the Club even more enjoyable by being on the board! I love seeing kids push themselves and see what they can accomplish!

A fun fact about me is I love riding quads at the dunes!

I got my start in wrestling in 1996-97 through the Albany Mat Club. I started wrestling because my parents thought I had to much energy and needed a way to mellow out. I wrestled for Albany until my family moved to Lebanon in 2005. I finished my high school wrestling career in Lebanon. After graduating, I joined the US Army.

 

I am excited to be apart of the board of directors because I want to be more active in my kids sports and help my community.

 

Some fun facts about myself are that I have served in Iraq and Afghanistan; after coming home, I lost my leg in a motorcycle accident. Despite losing my leg, I still enjoy riding motorcycles.

It all started in 1991 at a wrestling camp put on my Bill Thompson and the Cottage Grove High School wrestling team. I graduated in 2003 and began coaching the Lincoln Middle School and assisting the high school for two years. After that time, I coached Cottage Grove Mat Club for two years before moving to Lebanon. I married and had some boys and knew they would want to wrestle. I became a wrestling official and assisted the Sweet Home High School team. The next year I decided to switch to Lebanon, because my first boy was ready to start wrestling and we lived in Lebanon; there I helped out and continued to officiate. The following year I became one of the main coaches. Now I have been a part of coaching Lebanon Wrestling for six years.

 

A fun fact about me is I make sound effects when I run or participate in a sport, I believe it makes me faster.
