Media Center

Check out our ever expanding library of technique videos in our Media Center. You’ll learn from B.J. Futrell, Chase Pami, Dan Vallimont, Richard Perry, Josh Dziewa, Coach Slay, as well as some of the best wrestlers in the world like Kyle Snyder and Jordan Burroughs. We look forward to serving you with this valuable resource so you can continue to learn from the PRTC.

Internationally, the area of Dagestan in Russia is considered the hot bed of wrestling on the globe.  The area within a 250 miles radius of Philadelphia should be considered to be the hot bed of wrestling in the United States. Five of our eight Senior World Team members from 2015 grew up wrestling within 250 miles of Philadelphia (Green, Burroughs, Herbert, Snyder, and Rey). Burroughs and Snyder were World Champions, and Green was a Bronze Medalist. In addition to our Senior Level success, the future looks equally as promising. In fact, the Philadelphia Metro Area (Area XI) youth outpaced all other areas in the state at this year's state championships placing 44 to the next closest 31. I believe the PRTC is located in arguably the best youth and high school wrestling area in the nation, and I'm very excited to begin contributing and serving these future World and Olympic Champions and their coaches.
