Meet MSUM’s Assistant Wrestling Coach, Jake Lords. He is taking his coaching experience and bringing it to the mat, helping his wrestlers become successful athletes and individual

Start date: September 3, 2019

Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: The wrestling program is a huge reason why I came to MSUM. Coach Nelson called me asking if I would be interested. I have been to Fargo to wrestle a few times and we happened to stay in Moorhead and I really enjoyed the area. I came here and found that it would be a good fit.

Q: What is one thing that surprised you about MSUM?
A: It’s not really a surprise, but everyone is so kind and friendly here, I love it. It’s a comfortable area to be in!

Q: What unique experience or skills from your last job do you bring to MSUM?
A: I was a high school wrestling head coach for six years before coming here. I have that experience and can help Coach Nelson grow this program to its full potential.

Q: What is your go-to productivity trick?
A: I’ve got to get moving. I need to get a lift in or wrestle or just get my blood flowing. That what I do to feel more productive.

Q: If you could trade place with anyone for a day, who would it be and why.
A: I think I would trade places with President Blackhurst to see what she does on a daily basis. It would be fun to be her and fun for her to see what the wrestling program is like for a day!

Welcome to the #DragonFamily, Coach Lords. We’re glad you’re here!
