IMG_1810From his first job at the University of Arizona, to coaching the Perry wrestling team for the last 28 years, Coach Dave Riggs has racked up the accomplishments.  His latest being the most impressive.  Coach David Riggs was named the National High School Wrestling Coach of the Year by the National Wrestling Coaches Association.  After leading the Panthers to their first team title in 2014, Riggs learned of his national award through email.  When he first read it, he was shocked.  Then after letting it sink in, he feels very grateful and honored of the award.  Coach Riggs stats are beyond impressive: 3rd in the State in the last 12 years, 9 times state runner up as a team, 28 individual state champs and 100 state placers, last 19 years as Federal League champs with a record of 142-2.  Congrats to Coach Riggs and the entire Panther Wrestling Program.
