Coach John Constien
I have been a competitive athlete for as long as I can remember, since I was 6 or 7 years old—it is a major part of who I am. In high school I was a 3X state qualifier in wrestling and an all-league running-back in football. I also played collegiate rugby at Western Oregon University. In college I began competing in submission wrestling and mixed martial arts under Matt Lindland, UFC veteran and US Men’s Greco national head coach. I continue to train and compete today.
What I have learned from a life of competition is that we are capable of so much more than we might think and that with the right mindset, support, and dedication the things one can accomplish are endless. Almost always however, we need others to help us along the way. This is why I decided to be a coach. I have been a wrestling coach since 2010, and in specifically in Camas since 2012. I am the Head Wrestling Coach at Skyridge Middle School and am also one of the primary coaches at Elite Wrestling Club. Outside of wrestling I love to hunt, fish, and hang out with my wife Cori and my chocolate lab Biggs.
