Elite Wrestling Academy of Memphis


After going back and watching Paynes final match from yesterday.... one of the things is I loved most were seeing his teammates in the left corner of this video jumping, yelling, screaming and cheering him on. What a little family!!!! Who wouldn't push harder when you have all your friends cheering you on.
Talk about Intense Match!! Tied 7-7 and Jackson locks down the W in overtime 💪🏻💪🏻 Katie Brown
So thankful for the patience, energy, and time these coaches put into our kids.... and the support the kids are giving each other as they get excited to cheer on their teammates is awesome!!!
One more Camp complete for Bryson Burke and William Westbrook at the Pat Smith Wrestling Camp in Little Rock, AR. They worked with 4 time World Champion and 2 time Olympic Gold Medalist John Smith and members of the Oklahoma State wrestling team.

Elite Wrestling Academy has a new home!!! This weekend was a very bitter sweet time for me as we have decided to move to a new location. I know that our new home will be in a much better location and the facility is second to none, but leaving here is still very hard. This is where is all started, just 10 short years ago. These walls have seen it all. Blood, sweat, tears, and tons of laughs. I have had the pleasure of coaching and mentoring hundreds of young men and women on these mats. In 10 years we have had 76 City Champions, 49 Region Champions, 82 State Placers, 26 All-Americans, and 12 State Champion. Our wrestlers have gone on to win 24 High School Region Championships, 29 State Placers, and 6 State Champions. We have had 11 wrestlers go on to wrestle in college. Watching these young wrestlers achieve their goals has been absolutely amazing to watch and to think it all started here on these mats. Although our time here has come to an end, the blood, sweat, and tears that the hundreds of young men and women have given will forever remain. I will never forget this place and where it all stated. (Yes the tears started flowing when I shut the door and turned out the lights for the last time)
We will start practicing at out new facility this October. Here’s to another 10 years.
A special shout out and thanks to all of the coaches that have given their all and making these last 10 years so special!


New Wrestling Season starts on Oct!! Can’t wait!!!!
