Semi Final Marquette Matches


Mr. Mat 2011 Rich Gregor Edison

For The Times Leader

Coach Rich Gregor began wrestling competitively at Springfield High School, where he was an outstanding varsity performer on the mats for four years.  After graduating from high school in 1959, Rich Gregor decided to matriculate at Ohio University.
At the university, Gregor wrestled under legendary mat mentor Harry Houska for four years, graduating in 1963.  Later, Rich Gregor earned his masters degree from Central Missouri State in 1965.
Over five decades (1960s to the 2000s), Gregor has coached in Florida, Maryland, and Ohio at both the collegiate and scholastic levels.  But his true home has always been Springfield High School (now Edison Local High School), where he began and ended his coaching stint.
Rich Gregor’s overall coaching record is 326-162-3, winning 69-percent of his dual meets. His 1980 Springfield High School squad won the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference Class A Team Championship.  As well as coaching many OVAC and state placewinners, he also produced one of the OVAC’s greatest wrestlers – Kelly Shields.  Shields is one of only six elite wrestlers to have won four Ron Mauck OVAC Wrestling Tournaments.
In 1998, Coach Rich Gregor’s wrestling biography was spotlighted on the cover of the OVAC tournament souvenir program.  A singular coaching honor so well deserved regarding Ohio Valley wrestling.
Nick Trombetta, former ultra-successful coach at East Liverpool, once said of Coach Gregor, “A Gregor team was always in great shape, mentally tough and extremely disciplined.
A team always reflects the attitude and values of their coach - and his wrestlers did.  Coach Rich Gregor has always been respected by all of us in the OVAC wrestling family as a great coach, loyal friend, and an outstanding human being.”
In the mid-2000s, Gregor coached at Springfield Junior High School, where he had the rare privilege of coaching his grandson Ryan who is now a senior at Edison Local High School.
Rich Gregor is now retired and resides in Amsterdam, Ohio with his devoted wife Jan.
They have three daughters – Annie, Holly, and Meredith – and eight grandchildren: Ryan, Hannah, Mark, Madeline, Zoe, Roman, Taylor, and Kennedy.

Welcome to OVAeC Wrestling

(Ohio Valley Athletic ex Coach) The purpose of this web site is to promote O.V.A.C. wrestling and the individuals that make it all possible. I don't proclaim to know everything about the
O.V.A.C.'s or wrestling, but I have coached in the O.V.A.C.'s for the past 8 years so I do have some knowledge of the sport, coaches and the wrestlers(2002).
