Porter promoted at Hiram

Dustin Porter has been promoted to head coach at Hiram after spending the past two seasons as the top assistant at the northeast Ohio school. He replaces Andy Vogel who coached the team since its rebirth in 2020

Porter previously coached at Lake Erie College, Tiffin University, and Gardner-Webb University. He competed for Gardner-Webb as well and was a four-time NCAA Division I qualifier for the Runnin’ Bulldogs. He continued to compete after college and qualified for the 2011 World Team Trials in Freestyle. 

Hiram will join the PAC this season and will compete with St. Vincent, Thiel, Washington & Jefferson, and Waynesburg. The rest of Hiram’s athletic teams will follow the wrestlers into the PAC in 2025. 

Dustin Porter Promoted To Head Coach Of Men’s Wrestling Program

On a personal note, I am happy to have Coach Porter take over for me at Hiram. I am sure he will do as good a job as head coach as he did as my assistant the past two seasons. I have moved to Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, where my wife Janet started her new job today as the Director of the Murray Library at our alma mater Messiah University. My plans are still evolving, but you can expect d3wrestle.com to continue.
