Kevin Black was a four-time high school state wrestling champion at River Falls High School in Wisconsin. His college career at Wisconsin saw him compete at the NCAA Division I Championships three times, including a fourth-place finish at 133 pounds in 2002. Now the head coach at his alma mater of River Falls, Black has launched a unique initiative aimed at developing women's wrestling at the age-group levels.
On Episode 364 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Black explains his plan and how River Falls High School will facilitate the educational goals for a new group of women's wrestlers.
Black also shares his opinions on the developmental gap between the U.S. and other countries and why he believes women's-only wrestling opportunities will further help grow the number of women's wrestlers in Wisconsin and the U.S.
