Coach Emeritus - Tony Vaughn     Coach Tony Vaughn spent five valuable years, from 2004 through April 2009, in Toledo, Ohio assisting with the formation, philosophy, and overall character of the Jr. Rocks Wrestling Program.  For that, we are indebted and Tony has earned the title of Coach Emeritus.  Tony Vaughn, a former Big Ten wrestling champion from Purdue, earned All-American honors, placing third at the 1994 NCAA Division I national meet. He also holds the Purdue single season record for most wins (40 in 1996).  In August 2004, Tony earned a Master of Science degree in Physical Education with a minor in Athletic Administration from Eastern Illinois University. While there, he acted as the wrestling team’s Graduate Assistant Coach and assisted with the athletic department’s academic services program. Prior to coaching at Eastern, Vaughn was the head coach at Mount Saint Clare (IA) College for 2 years. From 1997-2000, he was an assistant coach at Manchester (IN) College. Manchester finished 6th in the nation in NCAA Division III twice during this time.  For three seasons (2004 - 2007) Tony was head coach of the St. Francis Wrestling Club and was a member of the high school coaching staff.  Tony's gift of wrestling and his ability to communicate with young wrestlers is unprecedented.  Coach Vaughn is an account manager with Harris Healthtrends a Heathways Company.  He and his wife Marquita reside in Nashville, TN.
