Apex’s Head Coach and Founder Damion Logan has been named as the FILA Jr. World Team Leader and Head Wrestling Coach for the Pan American Games. Coach Logan will be leading a team of athletes and coaches to the Pan American Championships in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on June 27th-29th.
In recent years the United States placed many athletes including NJ’s own Anthony Girlado. This year’s team should be one of the most competitive ever with athletes such as Joshua Rodriguez, Anthony Valencia and many other top ranked wrestlers representing the United States.
Former Greco-Roman World Champion and NCAA All-American Joe Warren recently said, “Logan’s a great hire for USA Wrestling. They need to get people like him involved with his understanding and passion for the sport. I think he’s going to do a great job for USA Wrestling.”
Coach Logan is a two-time NCAA All-American at the University of Michigan, where he competed in the University Freestyle National Championships and at many Senior level events. Prior to Michigan he was a multiple time Fargo All-American and New Jersey Freestyle and Greco-Roman State Champion.
He has worked closely with former National Team Coach Zeke Jones and many other top coaches and athletes in the country. His previous credentials also include training two-time NCAA Champion and Freestyle All-American Matt Valenti and 2014 University National Champion Anthony Ashnault. His experience will prove be an integral part of the team’s efforts this year at the Games! Congrats to Coach Logan!
