Message from Coach Keller:

I can't wait to get to work to help continue and build on the strong wrestling tradition and culture that has been built at Barrington.

I want to help to use wrestling as a vehicle not only to teach kids to win on the mat, but also to become great people off the mat.

One of my favorite sayings is there's no such thing as part time winners, you are either a winner in every single thing you do or you are not, the way you act in the classroom, the way you help out anyone in need, the way you treat your teammates, the way you act in the community, and the effort you wrestling with, to name a few. Be a 24/7 winner in every single aspect of your life.

Barrington wrestling is already a program that is well known and well respected in the state of Illinois. I can not wait to help to contribute to the program and help it continue to climb that ladder. It is time to chase down state team trophies!
