Meet Arkansas Girls Wrestling National Team Head Coach – Doug McGuire

My name is Doug McGuire I started wrestling on a club team from Mtn. Home, Ar. when I was in the fourth grade, wrestled through HS and some while enlisted in the USN. I had been away from the sport about 20 years when my son as a freshman at Little Rock Catholic HS came home and said his school was starting a team, but the coach had never wrestled and needed some help. I coached there for four years and after my son graduated I started a program at Glen Rose HS close to my home. I have been coaching there for five years. I also started a youth program there named Raptor Wrestling. About five years ago I started taking girls to Folkstyle Nationals and last year we were officially recognized as the Arkansas Girls National Team by the Arkansas Wrestling Association. In my almost 10 years of coaching I have had a multitude of All-State wrestler’s, a few State Champions and All-Americans. My 10 y/o daughter Isabella is a 3x All-American. Aimee Wright from my HS team is a 2x All-American making it to Girls Folkstyle National finals her last two trips in a row.
