Local coach testimonials


"The ability to connect and develop relationships with elite level leaders has been a tremendous resource for myself and my athletes. Many times networking can feel forced. Wrestlers in Business has created the ultimate ice breaker allowing all those involved to instantly have common ground. Having rapport with Aaron Grossman and John Licata has provided incredible opportunities to learn and gain valuable perspective. Beyond those relationships, WBN has brought in guest speakers Tom Ryan, J Robinson, Coyte Cooper and Congressman Jim Jordan to name a few who have shared their journey, their story, and their keys to success."

"With the generous donation from Wrestlers in business,  BW Wrestling was able to enhance the student/athlete experience beyond what the school operating budget allows.  It also has an impact on our program beyond $ monetary contributions.  Wrestlers in Business helps link and connect them to others that can maybe help launch or advance their career.  All of this is done by passionate wrestlers!!!  THANK YOU Wrestlers in Business."

"Wrestlers in Business has made a large impact on our wrestling program. With their generous donations we were able to assist our wrestlers beyond the schools capacity. Our college requires internships within their majors to graduate and with the resources presented by Wrestlers in Business it has helped create relationships to excel their future careers."

-Frank Romano

"WIBN has played a vital role in growing wrestling throughout NE Ohio. The benefits of connecting our graduates with potential members is a priceless feature. WIBN has gone the extra mile to include small schools in their outreach. Their devotion to small school wrestling programs was witnessed first hand at this years All Star Classic. Several bouts featured local DII and DIII schools wrestlers.

Thanks for the support!"
