Youth Wrestling Coach, Jacob Malone:
Jacob has taken a role as youth wresting coach starting with the 2019 season. He is excited to share his knowledge and skills gained throughout his career. He began his wrestling career in New York Mills, MN where he enjoyed learning the sport from an excellent coaching staff that invested into the program. He competed alongside his bother and some great teammates. Jacob was fortunate enough to go to state 3 times and place each time. After high school Jacob wrestled and played football at Saint John’s University. He was a 2X All-American in ’06 and ’07 taking 4th and 5th in the NCAA Div. III Nationals. He credits the SJU wrestling program/teammates for a lot of his growth and success as a wrestler. Wrestling has taught him many important life lessons that he hopes to pass on to his boys and other young wrestlers.
Jacob lives on a small farm in Garfield, MN with his wife Jessica and boys Connor, Riley, Grant, and Patrick. He is putting his Business Management degree from SJU to use working for Alex Brick and Stone for the past 10+ years. He is very much looking forward to this new chapter in his wresting career.
