Mitch is originally from Leamington, Ontario; a small community outside of Windsor in Southern Ontario. He began wrestling at the age of 12 collecting many provincial medals in both Freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling. He then went on to win nationals in both Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling which afforded him the opportunity to represent Canada internationally and become an athlete at the Olympic Training Center in Montreal.
Mitch’s passion and skill at wrestling allowed him to be awarded a scholarship to Concordia University in Montreal where he was able to pursue his second love which is teaching. Following the completion of his History degree he enlisted in the military where he ultimately ended up in the ranks of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Airborne company. There he is the head coach of the Western Canadian Military Grappling Team where he helped the team reach 2nd place at the 2017 Nationals while achieving 1st place in 2018.
While in Alberta Mitch made strides to remain connected to the wrestling community by taking on the role of Assistant Coach for the University of Alberta Wrestling. Coaching has always been a passion of his and has allowed him to teach all ages and at all levels. He looks forward to this new chapter in his coaching career and hopes to use his 15+ years of wrestling experience to NXT LVL.
