Hello Parents and Guardians, my name is Kris Hayward. I am the Head Wrestling Coach at Fort Myers Riverdale High School and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about the Fort Myers Riverdale Wrestling Program and encourage your son to participate in the sport of wrestling.
Wrestling teaches self-discipline, humility, perseverance, self-confidence, and builds character. It is an individual and team sport that is for kids of all body shapes and sizes. Wrestling is a rewarding sport that gives kids opportunities to be successful as individuals while competing on a team.
The Fort Myers Riverdale Wrestling program is one of the
premier sports programs in Southwest Florida. In the past 40 years, Riverdale
has won 2 state championships, and many conference, district, and regional
championships. We have also had 20 individual state champions, 70 state
place winners, 6 High School All-Americans, and 1 2x College All-American.
We are proud of our accomplishments on and off the mat.
Our wrestlers have attended numerous colleges and universities such as
U of Florida, Florida State, Miami, Georgia Tech, Central Michigan, Stanford,
and The Naval Academy. We have alumni who are lawyers, doctors, teachers,
coaches, business leaders, serve in the military, and are successful in
many other professions in our community.
Personally, I believe wrestling helps turn young men into
leaders, and I would love to have your son be a part of our youth or high
Thank you for your time and consideration. It is a Great Time to be a Wrestling Raider!
