National Wrestling Hall of Famer, Olympic and ASU Head Coach presents at Blue Ridge Sunkist Wrestling Camp

On June 12, New ASU Wrestling Head Coach Zeke Jones presented at the Sunkist Wrestling Clinic at Blue Ridge.  BR Head Wrestling Coach Kevin Woolridge has done an incredible job in the past couple of years leading the Yellowjacket wrestling program.  Part of his vision has involved bringing in elite athletes and coaches to summer camps hosted by Blue Ridge as part of his efforts to encourage and support young athletes from here and around the nation in learning the tremendous skills and values associated with the sport of wrestling.  This was an amazing experience for everyone attending the camp and a tremendous honor for Blue Ridge to host Coach Jones.

Zeke Jones is one of the most acclaimed and accomplished wrestlers in the world.  He won a silver medal at the
1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, a world championship in Varna, Bulgaria, in 1991, and is currently the Freestyle Head Coach at USA Wrestling. He was a 6-time National Freestyle Champion, 4X World Cup Champion, Pan American Games Champion, and received the "World's Most Technical Wrestler Award" awarded by FILA, the international governing body for the sport. In college, he was a three-time All-American for Arizona State University and competed on the 1988 NCAA Championship team, coached by famed Bobby Douglas. After college, he wrestled on two world championships teams with the United States Wrestling Team. In 2005 he was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and was  Head Coach of the 2012 US Olympic Freestyle Wrestling team.   Jones has coached at the collegiate Division I level for 18 years. His first college coaching position was as an assistant coach at Bloomsburg University, Arizona State University and West Virginia University before becoming the head coach at the University of Pennsylvania in 2005.  Coach Jones was hired as the new Head Wrestling coach for ASU in April and made his first public appearance in Arizona in his new position here at Blue Ridge today.
