Coach Randy Haus:
I grew up in a small Minnesota town where I was one of 9 children, here my 4 brother's and I would fight all the time. Mom would always tell us to "take it outside!" where we would wrestle. From there I started in Middle school organized wrestling. Once I started winning matches I was hooked. In high school I was named MVP in my junior year and then captain as a senior. I also helped coach youth teams and wrestled in state and national Freestyle and Greco tournaments throughout the Midwest. Wrestling helped me get into St. Johns University in Minnesota where I wrestled for 2 years before ending my career. I transferred to University of Minnesota where I received a degree in Economics.
Now - Norwalk Dad:
Now I am an East Norwalk Dad, and Certified USA wrestling coach where my wife Jen and I are, raising 2 boys and 2 girls. Over the past 2 years I have been assisting at the successful New Canaan Wrestling program but decided it was time for Norwalk to have it's own team. Wrestling provided me with a foundation that built self confidence and self discipline. It helped me set goals and achieve those goals. For that I am forever grateful which makes me very excited about starting this program for the young people of our community
Coach Art Schad:
