O’Dea Wrestling

The O’Dea High School Wrestling Program was started in 1985 by Barrett Corrigan. Since then, the O’Dea wrestling program has experienced a history of success. In 1991, under head coach Dave Enslow, the wrestlers won their first Metro title. That legacy continued for the next eleven years as O’Dea earned twelve consecutive Metro championships.   In all, since it’s inception, the O’Dea Wrestling Program has captured 21 Metro titles and won 9 Regional championships. Individually, 37 wrestlers have become Regional Champions, and 28 wrestlers have earned medals at State. The O’Dea wrestling program earned State Academic Championships in 2002 and 2003.

Jeff Anderson has been the head coach of the program since 1992, and is a member of the O’Dea Athletic Wall of Honor.

Since many of the champions had never wrestled prior to attending O’Dea, much of the credit goes out to all the volunteer alumni assistant coaches who return year after year to help mentor the younger wrestlers.
