• For the past nine years, I was the Head Wrestling Coach for the wrestling team at Niagara Falls High School. The wrestling program at the High School has had a lot of success since LaSalle and Niagara Falls have combined. My goal was to continue that tradition of success.  In 2014 and 2020 we won the Class AA tournament and finished the season AA Section Champs. In 2020 we went undefeated and won the Niagara Frontier League. In 2018 and 2020, Willie McDougald won the New York State Championship Tournament. He is the first ever 2x State Champ from Niagara Falls. I was so proud of him! I believe wrestling is the best sport you can participate in. 

    My wife, Ashley, and I have been married for 5 years. We have two daughters Gianna and Adrianna. We have a dog named Maui. We adopted him from Buddy's Second Chance Rescue. He loves to swim, hike and play! I like to spend my free time with my family. Some of my favorite things to do is take my family places to have fun. Aquarium of Toronto, Aquarium of Niagara, Buffalo Museum of Science, Buffalo Zoo, and Niagara Falls State Park are some of the places we like to go to. Another thing I love to do is take Maui running, hiking, and swimming

    In March of 2016, I had a big personal accomplishment. My friend and I hiked Mt. Marcy. Mt. Marcy is the highest mountain in New York State. It is located in the Adirondack Mountain Range by Lake Placid New York. We hiked 7.5 miles and it took us four and a half hours to make it to the top. In May of 2018, I achieved another personal accomplishment. I ran in the Buffalo Marathon and finished it without walking. A marathon is 26.2 miles, I ran all of it and it took me over 4 hours!
