  7. SEAN RUSSELL RETURNS TO HIS HOME REGION AS THE NEW HEAD COACH OF RTC SOUTH By Gary Abbott, USA Wrestling | April 21, 2021, 5:33 p.m. (ET) Sean Russell RTC South GraphicRTC South, the Regional Training Center affiliated with Chattanooga wrestling, announced the hiring of Georgia native Sean Russell as its new head coach. RTC South tweeted the following: We are excited to welcome Georgia native Sean Russell as our new Head Coach of RTC South. Sean has a huge passion for the sport and has excelled as an athlete both collegiately & on the senior level. Welcome back to the south Sean! Russell was a four-time state high school champion for Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Ga. He was a 2017 NCAA All-American and three-time NCAA qualifier for Edinboro, before transferring to Minnesota for his senior year, where he was third in the Big Ten, and reached the blood round at the NCAA Championships. Russell made his run in Senior freestyle as a member of the Gopher WC. He was fourth at the 2020 Senior Nationals at 57 kg, then punched his ticket for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials by winning the title at the Last Chance Qualifier this March. At the Trials in Fort Worth, Russell went 1-2, with a win over fellow Gopher WC veteran Zach Sanders, and losses to Daton Fix and Nathan Tomasello. Russell took to Twitter with his thoughts on the new assignment: Psyched to announce I will be headed back south to start my coaching career with The University of Tennessee Chattanooga as the RTC head coach. Thank you to @gopherwrestling for an unreal 3 years that I will never forget. Southern boyz let’s go. For more information on RTC South, visit: RTC South website

  21. Dear friends, I am sending this email in regards to my brother Christopher and his wife Joey who welcomed baby Wyatt Bird into the world this summer on July 10th. I am unsure if you are aware that baby Wyatt spent only a few days at home before he was admitted into T.C. Thompson’s Hospital where he spent the next twenty seven days of his life undergoing tests and treatments in order to diagnose his issue. In the months following his extensive hospital stay, he has been back and forth between home and the hospital. While at home, he is on monitors and a feeding tube twenty four seven and is in need of constant supervision by Joey which has made it impossible for her to return to work this year. Christopher and Joey are still taking Wyatt to the doctor on a weekly basis. Due to the care Wyatt is in need of right now, we are hosting a benefit luncheon at Jones Memorial Methodist Church on Sunday September, 25 at 12:30 in honor of Baby Wyatt. All of the money raised will help Christopher and Joey meet the needs of Baby Wyatt.
