about back points

Back Points aims to reveal the secrets of how to reach full potential as a high school wrestler or coach.  Each episode features a wrestler who won a state wrestling championship or a coach who led a team to a state championship. We take a deep dive into what motivates each guest in their own words. We learn about the challenges and victories they experienced along the way. BackPoints highlights a wide range of wrestling journeys, from those who started young to others who didn’t start to wrestle until high school. No matter their backgrounds our guests all have one thing in common: a commitment to excellence both on and off the mat.
