Event Host

Wrestlers in Business Network DC and Coastal Virginia Chapter


Featured Guest - Tom Ryan

  • Tom Ryan has led the Ohio State wrestling program to unprecedented heights, culminating with the program's first-ever national championship in 2015 as well as ending a 64-year drought for the Big Ten wrestling title.
  • Tom has won multiple Coach of the Year honors from the Big Ten, WIN Magazine, the NWCA, and InterMat.
  • During his long career with Ohio State, Tom has coached an impressive list of wrestlers that includes All-Americans, Big Ten Champions, Athlete of the Year winners, Hodge Trophy Winners, and NCAA champions.
  • Ryan believes community service is crucial to building "Life Champions," and therefore the Buckeyes are active participants in the Second & Seven Foundation reading program that strives to "Tackle Illiteracy" in Central Ohio and routinely volunteers at Nationwide Children's Hospital and the annual Wrestle against Autism Tournament.
