Bethel Wrestling Coach, Darren Lieb, states “He inspired others to work harder both on and off the mat.”
Additionally, Randy was an outstanding student. Despite missing a considerable amount of time while participating, he graduated with over a 4.0 GPA and was one of his graduating class’s valedictorian. Randy was only able to do this because of his extremely high level of personal expectations and drive.

He graduated with honors with a degree in Kinesiology in December 2014. He then went on to earn his teaching certification and is now teaching and coaching at South Anchorage High School.
