New Era – Same Tradition

On behalf of the Coyote Club and CSUB Wrestling, we cordially invite you to attend our annual fundraiser dinner themed “New Era – Same Tradition”. This fundraiser along with several other events we do throughout the year assist in meeting a goal of raising $250,000 which sustains our wrestling program. CSUB has a proud and rich tradition spanning over 40 years. Over the course of those 40 years, CSUB wrestling boasts 45 All-Americans, 9 National Champions, and 10 Olympic/World Team Members.

 

This year’s New Era – Same Tradition dinner will feature legendary University of Minnesota wrestling coach J Robinson. Coach Robinson, a San Diego, CA native, has coached 3 national championship teams, was named NCAA national coach of the year on 4 occasions, and coached the only team in history to claim 10 NCAA All-Americans in one season. In addition to Coach Robinson, first year head coach for the Roadrunners Manny Rivera will be speaking. Rivera was an NCAA All American at Minnesota under J Robinson and a member of the 2007 NCAA National Championship team. Also in attendance will be CSUB wrestling great Stephen Neal. Neal a 2x NCAA champion, Freestyle World Champion, and 3x Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots.

 

The CSUB wrestling program comes off a season that included 5 NCAA qualifiers and a Pac 12 dual championship. The 2016-17 squad features nationally ranked Coleman Hammond (18th). The wrestling program also enters with a new look on the coaching staff. New to the staff are first year head coach Manny Rivera and first year assistant Sean Boyle. Also new to the coaching staff however a familiar face is director of operations Reuben Franklin. Returning to the staff are Jeff Silveira, now the associate head coach and Efren Ceballos as the volunteer coach. We are excited for another successful season and look forward to your support at our events!

 

This is your opportunity to be part of the future of CSUB wrestling. We look forward to your support to sustain our program and the wrestling tradition at CSUB.
