Wrestling Coach Jon Judy

Jon has been involved with the sport of wrestling for over 20 years, both as a competitor and a coach. His own wrestling career has seen him have success at the state, national and international levels where he has had the opportunity to wrestle some of the best athletes the sport has to offer. As a wrestler, Jon’s strength lies in his takedown skills where he has developed solid throws and shots to effectively put his opponents on the ground.

He is most proud of his accomplishments as a coach where he has helped to coach multiple state champions and several All-American’s from Wyoming and New Mexico ranging from junior wrestling through high school. Jon has not only had success producing individual champions, but has also been a part of coaching staffs who have produced District and State championship teams in all three styles of wrestling (Collegiate, Freestyle and Greco-Roman).
