Listen to episode three of the SCSU Wrestling Black and Red Edge Podcast

For Episode 3 of the St. Cloud State University Wrestling Black and Red Edge we’ll be hearing from MSHSL Wrestling coaching great and Husky wrestling alum, Neil Jennissen. Neil coached three current and past Husky wrestlers in Senior Travis Swanson, Graduate Assistant Coach Travis Holt, and his son Former Captain and All-American Clayton Jennissen at Cambridge-Isanti High School.


Neil first talks about his career as a wrestler and how his coaches instilled in him, a mindset to win that later influenced him to become a coach himself. Neil talks about the journey as a high school coach and establishing his own philosophy in the wrestling room.

We then talk about his time coaching Travis Holt and Travis Swanson, and the enjoyment of coaching his youngest son, but still striving to keep the father and son relationship strong outside of wrestling. We end the podcast by hearing from Holt, Swanny, and Clayton about their experiences with their high school coach on and off the mat.
