Yorkville Wrestling Club continues to rise in Illinois as a club with ELITE wrestlers as well as high participation rates. This stems from the hiring back in 2013-2014 of NAIA 4-Time All American, 2-Time National runner-up , Head Club Coach Ryan Ferguson and his impressive resume. Flo Wrestling released their top 86 participation clubs and Yorkville (#84) made the list among other top flight clubs in Illinois (Edwardsville #4, Crystal Lake Wizards #12, Celtic Elite #51, Izzy Style #51, Harvey Twisters #60, Martinez Fox Valley Elite #61, Gomez Wrestling Academy #74). Only 86 clubs made the cut.
This is all about culture, coaching, and the kids. Credit goes to all of the families that commit to what Ferguson teaches and his visions of what this club is, and can be moving forward.
If you don't know about Coach Ferguson, here is a Throwback Thursday article back in his high school days.
