La Joya Community High School Wolfpack is getting ready to slam this season down, with the help of our newest addition to the pack, Coach Nelson.

Coach Nelson himself has participated in this life sport in middle school, high school, USA nationally, and college wrestling. He has also had the opportunity to coach and wrestle on championship teams. Although, he’s been involved in this sport for years, he feels that he has never had a place to call home.

He is finally home, and Coach Nelson is very humbled to be here with the Lobo Nation Wrestling Program. He came in and got to meet some of his potential wrestlers that he will be working with over summer, and has been excited since. ¬†“I worked with him a lot over summer, and I learned a lot of new tricks that I never knew before.” said ¬†Jordan Ellis

Coach can not wait for season to get here any faster. “We have a strong base to become great.” Said Coach Nelson ,With a new team, as a new coach to the school, he hopes to teach his wrestlers, hard work, and dedication.

“I bring to this team a strong belief in NCAA core values of balancing academics, and social and athletic experience.” With the experience, support, and dedication Coach Nelson brings to our future lobo wrestlers, we cannot wait to see the turn out of our wrestling season. “I love this sport, its about guts, grit, its about just doing your best. That is all I want, and all I need for this team.” said Nelson

Our wolfpack has a great season to come, with our great new coach. Pre-season is already started, so if you would love to start training with Coach Nelson, get cleared and head on down and meet coach by the weight room right after school. Coach is ready to work with you, and make you the best wrestler that you can be.
