Well-Traveled Career
Mark Perry's wrestling career has taken him all over the country. He grew up Oklahoma, moved to New Jersey in high school to wrestle at Blair Academy, wrestled collegiately at Iowa, spent a year as an assistant coach at Penn State, and is now the top assistant coach on John Azevedo's staff at Cal Poly. InterMat's Andrew Hipps talks to Perry about his decision to come to Cal Poly, whether he ever thought about leaving Iowa during the difficult years, how his relationships have changed with his uncles since college, what it was like wrestling against his uncles' teams and coaching against his brother, whether he plans to pursue an international wrestling career, what the future holds for Cal Poly's wrestling program, and much more.
