Mr. Baker said that he became a wrestling coach because it is a great sport and teaches kids a lot of commitment and about what hard work does for them and their life and just not in the sport itself. It teaches a lot about life lessons, and that is why he has enjoyed being a wrestling coach for 30 years. 

We wish Canyon High School Wrestling luck as they keep going through their season through February.
