“Coach Crowell’s presentation really made me go back and evaluate many aspects of what we are doing with our program. His ideas about wrestling… whether lifting and conditioning or practice plans and team rules really make you want to tweak your own program so that you are utilizing his plan for winning with class and style.”

Little Chute H.S., Wisconsin

“I attended the coaches clinic at Green Bay and had a chance to see your presentation. I usually try to pick up one thing at a clinic that can help our program. However, I have already used a number of things that you demonstrated. I have been coaching for 23 years. Your clinic was one of the best I have seen in a long time.

“Even though I wasn’t coached by Dave, I felt like I had been because of his profound impact on my college wrestling coach. Dave’s coaching influence has gone far and wide and I firmly believe it is because he cares about more than just winning and losing. I am privileged to now call him a friend and a mentor.”

"Some men find that they serve as a missionary to far off places around the globe, Coach Dave Crowell has found that his mission lies in the confines of a wrestling room. He is among such leaders as Tony Dungy, Joe Ehrmann, and Jeff Duke to name a few in leading the charge to become transformational coaches and change the hearts and minds of the young men who have the privilege to call him coach. I am humbled and honored to be able to call Coach Crowell a mentor and a friend and know that any coach, new or veteran can take his lessons and grow."
