My name is Nick Harris and I'm currently seeking a coaching position.  I am a former all-county wrestler and Freestyle State Champion from West Hempstead.  I have experience coaching at the Middle School level, but would thoroughly enjoy coaching at the High School level as well.  I teach highly effective techniques and strategies that will quickly increase a team's skills.  My passion in life is wrestling, and I'd like the opportunity to give back and inspire student-athletes with that passion. I am a licensed attorney, however, I have left my practice to pursue a Master's in Athletic Administration and will have more than enough time to dedicate to coaching full-time for at least the next 3 seasons.  Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thank you.
