The Apprentice School's Director of Athletics, Michael W. Allen, has named Micah Amrozowicz Head Wrestling coach.
"Micah was a no-brainer. He is a former apprentice, he has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to working and navigating down in the yard, and being a former wrestler and assistant coach, he bleeds Builder wrestling. I am excited to see how the next chapter unfolds under Coach Amrozowicz's leadership," states Allen.
A native of Virginia Beach and Kellam High School, Amrozowicz is a former two-time NCWA All-American who spent the last 10 seasons as an assistant coach for the Builders.
Amrozowicz ended one of the best two-year runs in the modern era of Apprentice School wrestling finishing second at 133 pounds in 2007 and put together a two-year record of 84-18. He was also named the Outstanding Wrestler at the 2007 Virginia Duals as the Builders finished second in the American College Division. His freshman season he set what was then the school record for wins in a season as he finished 45-8.
He came to the Builders after two years at Virginia Military Institute where he was 47-29. He took fourth at 133 pounds in the Southern Conference Championships as a sophomore in 2004.
Amrozowicz is a 2009 Advanced graduate of the Apprentice School as a welder. He has worked as a designer, planner and currently serves as a welding Foreman in the welding department. He graduated in 2013 from Old Dominion University with a BS in Occupational Technical Studies as a Training Specialist.
In his ten previous seasons as an assistant coach, Amrozowicz has helped coached over 30 National Collegiate Wrestling Association All-Americans.
"I am thankful for the opportunity to continue my coaching career at The Apprentice School, and look forward to giving back to the school that has given me so much. I look forward to building championships while helping develop leaders for this company. This is a special program to be a part of and it has been exciting seeing it grow and seeing where it is headed. A special thanks to Bruce Shumaker for being a mentor over the last 10 years, and most importantly my wife and family that has been nothing but supportive. GO BUILDERS!," states Amrozowicz.
