Today TOM was able to speak with Maryland head coach Alex Clemsen. Alex reflects on his first year as a head coach for a Maryland program that qualified two wrestlers for the NCAA Championships. One of those was senior Jahi Jones. Jahi was the recipient of the Big Ten Medal of Honor for Maryland and has an incredible back story. Coach Clemsen also talks about recruiting in-state and beyond, along with the interest in the program from current HS juniors. We also delve into Alex and his wife’s divided household when it comes to baseball allegiances, Michael Jordan and the Last Dance, and his favorite food spots in the DMV (District/Maryland/Virginia).
