Mike Olson

Mike Olson has been in the wrestling corner for more than 20 years and has been around the sport in some capacity all his life. As a newcomer, I knew little to nothing about wrestling but he's always been open to helping me and teaching me.

The end of July is going to be tough for me, and not for what some people might think. It will symbolize me hitting a new tier of my career, in a way.

When I started this job in 2010 there were several coaches at both South Hardin and Ellsworth Community College that were mainstays. They had been there for a long time – they had worked with the people before me for as long as anyone in the office could remember. And I’m sure there were some that were apprehensive when they found out their coverage was going to change hands, people don’t like change.

Baseball coach Dick Shindelar was willing to teach a newcomer to the sport all of his knowledge and no matter the outcome - win or loss - always answers his phone.
