Prosper Wrestling Academy head wrestling coach Sam Iturrino explains the rules and guidelines of the USA wrestling tournament on Saturday, Jan. 16 in the Prosper Arena. The local academy hosted the tournament that had more than 700 wrestlers from around Texas and the country. Prosper Wrestling Academy was founded in 2020 when Rock Hill High School opened and the only club wrestling team in Prosper became affiliated with Rock Hill, leaving Prosper High School without a club to train the up-and-coming wrestlers until the new academy opened.
