Bosken to lead Higher Calling Club

Posted

The Higher Calling Youth Wrestling Club announced this week that Josh Bosken has been named as the club’s new head coach.

Bosken previously served as head coach of the Cleveland High School Blue Raiders wrestling team from August of last year before resigning at the end of May. He had been involved with the high school and middle school wrestling programs at Cleveland since 2007, plus the Higher Calling program since 2009.

“I’m thankful for the time I spent at Cleveland High and it was a great experience for me, but this is right move for my family,” Bosken said.

“This is a tremendous opportunity because I have gone through the process from the bottom to the top and understand the importance of a stable and successful youth program.”

Higher Calling is a wrestling program that gives young wrestlers of all skill levels, grades K through 8, a chance to learn the essentials of practice and competition.

Bosken and his wife, Sadi, celebrated the birth of twins Kennedy and Kate almost a year ago, to go along with their other children, Zac and Zane.

Chad Laxton, Higher Calling’s President, said it was a strategic move for the club to be trusted to Bosken.

“Josh is a proven winner who has helped coach 54 state medalists and nine state champions, plus contributing to six state championship teams,” said Laxton.

“He has played a role in all three phases of the program - middle school, high school and Higher Calling. He understands how important each phase is and we are thankful for what he will mean to Higher Calling.”

Upon learning that he had been named head coach, Bosken said, “I am well aware of the expectations Higher Calling has, and I am ready to work restlessly to assure that they are met. The best is yet to come — we are breeding future champions.”
