He’s bringing Baltimore youths to the wrestling mats as a way to thrive

Morgan State gave up wrestling after the 1996-1997 season, one of a long line of colleges suspending their junior wrestling programs over the past three decades because of financial concerns. Today, not a single HBCU has a Division I program. In October, however, Morgan announced plans to reinvigorate its program through a donation that will help provide funding and annual scholarships. Morgan plans to hire a coach in 2022, recruit talent and arrange a full schedule for the 2023-2024 season. (The $2.7 million donation, made by the HBCU Wrestling initiative and a former wrestler who runs an investment firm, is the largest ever given to Morgan’s athletics division. .)
