Tim Flynn
NCAA All-American at Penn State
Edinboro Head Coach
Recognized as one of best coaches in the nation
Named Dan Gable Coach of the Year by WIN magazine in May 2014

"It matters little to Flynn, who just finished his 16th year at this western Pennsylvania school, that Edinboro is one-fourth the size of many of the other schools in NCAA Division I. Instead, the former Penn State All-American continues to produce All-Americans - including three this past March who will all return in 2014-15 - and led the Fighting Scots to its highest-ever NCAA finish of fifth place in Oklahoma City."

Many of our high school campers take time before or after camp to visit Penn State and many other colleges. There are over 30 colleges in Pennsylvania with wrestling programs including 14 Division I Wrestling programs. We work hard to prepare our campers to succeed in college on and off the mats, and we often help place our dedicated campers in good colleges.

Thanks again for another outstanding year at summer camp. I am very excited about the fact that both of our Southern Columbia's elementary coaches were able to attend your camp with some of our other team members. I know they were all extremely impressed with how well organized and the large number of world class clinicians that you have on staff at your camp. You run the best camps in the nation. Keep up the great job and we will see you in the fall at HTC. I included a couple of pics of my son Jake with Brad, Quentin, Troy & Mike.
