Glen Kuhn


    Glen Kuhn’s impact on the wrestling match began with his own competitive career and continues today in his role as an official. Kuhn had a stellar prep career at Curtis High School, helping lead the team to a second-place finish at the AAA State Tournament before graduating in 1977.

    He coached youth wrestling for many years and helped the Auburn A Team become the first to dethrone the Bethel All Stars in 1991. He later helped coach those same kids to a AAAA State Championship at Auburn High School in 1996.

    Over the past decade, Kuhn has become a rising star with the WWWOA. He received his first Regional Tournament assignment in only his second year and has now officiated seven straight Regional Tournaments. In his third year, he was voted onto the WWWOA Executive Board and has served for six consecutive years. He has taken on the very influential role of trainer and mentor to new officials and drops everything to help make them better.

    His growth as an official has been reflected in his assignments over the past year. He was assigned as Head Official to arguably the most competitive matches and challenging sub-regionals. He was also selected to officiate one of the most competitive Regionals in the state and was chosen as Alternate to the state tournament.

    Kuhn’s impact continues both in his own work on the mat and the work of those he’s worked with. He’s said that his greatest accomplishment “is seeing the kids I coached and influenced go on and become state placers and champions, as well as coaches, but even more than that, become role models and positive contributors in their communities and to the kids in the sport of wrestling.”
