NCW Founder and Coach Tommy Bateman passes away
To our NCW wrestling families.
We received sad news this morning as Tommy Bateman has passed away. In addition to being a star football player and Head Football Coach at Father Ryan, Tommy was a State Champion wrestler at Father Ryan who always gave back to the sport. He was the founder of our beloved Nashville Catholic Wrestling and saw that boys needed to learn some basic fundamentals before going on to wrestle in high school.
Funeral arrangements will be announced later, but please keep his family in your prayers.
