Excited to have Jacob on staff for our intermediate and elite level athletes. Jacob was a 2x national champ for Grand View and was always entertaining to watch!!! Jacob has a plethora of experience coaching, he helped the VWC way back after graduating from college. He then took on a head coaching role in western Iowa and also built the youth and middle school program up as well during his time there. Now he is back in the area and we are excited to have him help develop our athletes.
Coach Ty recently graduated from Grand View University and has accepted a job in the area. He was a huge help the last couple of years and assisted and leading many of our practices for our elite athletes. Coach Ty was a 3x Kansas High School State Placer and a 1x finalist.
Coach McCunn has help lead a lot of our off-season training in the Greco realm. He has been a huge help during his time as an athlete at Grand View leading by volunteering his time to help our athletes. Watching him help break down technique is amazing as he helps our athletes continue to sharpen their skills. McCunn recently won the U23 world team trails tournament and sets the example everyday!
GDL has been instrumental in the process, he has a unique style and is able to help our athletes grasp a different school of thought. McCunn and Lewis have been the leaders of our youth and high school Greco training and they have done an amazing job getting our athletes ready. The way he connects with the athletes is amazing and his corner work is top tier. Coach Lewis is still competing for the Vikings and we look forward to watching his career as he continues to help our youth and high school athletes.
Marty will be helping lead the Little Vikes again! Marty has an amazing room presence and ability to connect with our developmental athletes!! We are excited for him to continue to help lead the Little Vikes in the right direction and move the athletes up into our intermediate training! Marty was a national finalist last year for the Vikings and AA'd the year prior. He also was a national finalist at Clakamas.
