Asst. Coach SULLIBAN

Coaching Background 

Coach Kevin Henry moved to Las Vegas from Minnesota after his Sophomore year of high school at St. Agnes. In 2016 - he was a finalist at Shadow Ridge High School, Las Vegas, NV, in the 182 weight group for the Nevada State. 

After high school, he coached a year in Oakland at 'Beat the Streets' in 2018 - 2019 season. 

Soon after, Coach Henry wrestled in college at San Francisco State University from 2016 - 2020. 

Currently, Coach Henry is a 3rd Grade Elementary School Teacher at Red Rock Elementary School in Las Vegas, NV. 

Coach Jason Sulliban was born and raised in Honolulu Hawaii but has lived in Las Vegas since 2000. He received a BS in Animal Science from Washington State University and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University. Jason has played sports throughout his life, growing up playing soccer and baseball, and played volleyball in high school and college. Once he had children of his own, coaching was a natural next step.

He coached youth soccer for many years and when his sons began wrestling, he learned the sport and began assistant coaching on their youth wrestling teams. While Coach Sulliban has never wrestled himself, he has been training in Brasílian Jiu Jitsu since 2009 and holds the rank of brown belt.  Favorite quote: “Whatever doesn’t kill me had better start running”
