Tom Jenkins’ travels have taken him far away — even to Alaska — and that’s not counting thousands of miles he’s logged as a super committed wrestling dad.
The father of Whitehall High School wrestling standouts Ira and Wyatt Jenkins made a much shorter trip on Monday, when he visited CatchMark in Whitehall to chat with the guys on the CatchMark SportsNet Podcast.
Watch Episode 25 of the CSN Podcast at the top of this story. In it, Jenkins joins co-hosts Scott DeCamp, Brent Raeth and Zach Zweigle as they discuss a wide array of topics, a lot centered around wrestling.
Jenkins shares his experiences as the parent of a big-time Division I athlete, as two-time state champion Ira Jenkins is taking his talents to the University of Michigan. Tom Jenkins’ stories from his son’s recruiting journey are fascinating.
Jenkins notes that son Wyatt, a Whitehall freshman, possesses more raw talent than Ira. It’s a very insightful pod, so give it a watch or listen.
