As a coach, Dereck has a record of 328 wins-183 losses and 1 tie.  His teams have been league champs 10 times and Dereck has been voted Coach of the Year 10 times.  Dereck has had 14 Section 3 champions and 5 NYS place winners.

During his 29 years at CNS, Dereck has also volunteered as a coach with the Mohawk Valley Wrestling Club and has been a member of the Syracuse Wrestling Officials Association for 22 years.

Dereck has served on the Section 3 Wrestling Committee for 20 years - even serving a couple seasons as the assistant coordinator.

Dereck has hosted the Anderson Memorial Wrestling Tournament for each of his 29 years at CNS.  This is a premier early season tournament bringing in teams from all over NYS.

xx Team New York Wins Five Times at Schoolboy Greco Roman National Duals

Team New York took fourth place in the Bronze/Copper pool at the Schoolboy Greco Roman National Duals in Indiana on Friday, finishing with a 5-3 record overall.  

"Greco went great. It’s the best we have done in six years," said Chris Adams, the NY Schoolboy National Team Head Coach.

The squad from the Empire State began the tournament with a tough loss against Team Iowa 57-21, but then bounced back and won three consecutive matches - 58-17 over Tennessee, 42-34 against Team Florida and 41-36 over Oklahoma Blue - to finish in third place in Pool C on Thursday.  

As a result of that performance, the New York wrestlers were placed in the Bronze/Copper pool on Friday, where they picked up another win over Oklahoma Blue, 44-29. Earning victories for the NY squad were Dante Rigal, Andy Lucinski, Logan Gumble, Alijah Seymour, Mike Alltomar, Josh Post, Jack Reusing, Cooper Kropman, Cameron Bundy, Lucas Scott and Joey Pollack.

The team finished the day with a win over Minnesota (46-33) before losing to a tough Virginia squad (43-31) to take fourth in the bracket.

Josh Post and Cooper Kropman led the team, both posting 7-1 records, while Joey Pollack, Ethan Cooper, Mark Kmiotek, Lucas Scott, Alijah Seymour, Jack Reusing, Logan Gumble, Dante Rigal, Mike Alltomar and Andy Lucinski all had four or more victories.

"In my six years of coaching the Schoolboy National Team, this is the biggest and most well rounded team I have coached,” Adams said.
