with Russ Cozart, Brandon (FL) HS Head Coach;
2014 National Wrestling Coach of the Year by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS);
2014 Florida 2A High School State Champions; 25x Florida High School State Champs (including 15 in a row); winners of 459 straight wrestling matches (The Streak), 2x National Coach of the Year; 8x Florida Coach of the Year

It goes without saying that Russ Cozart knows how to win. The head wrestling coach at Brandon High School has won 25 state titles, including 14 straight (2001-14). Most notably, Coach Cozart is the architect of "The Streak", an unreachable high school scholastic sports record of 459 straight dual meet victories that escalated over the course three decades! A 2012 inductee into the Florida Hall of Fame, Coach Cozart is also a two-time National High School Coach of the Year and eight-time Florida Coach of the Year.

Follow Coach Cozart inside one of America's most storied high school wrestling programs as he guides the team through a 4-day practice week in preparation for an important 2-day tournament. This Monday through Thursday training period features an assortment of quality drills, technique, conditioning and strength exercises, gymnastic drills and other valuable information. You will learn how to organize your practices to get the most out of your training time. This set is a must for high school, middle school and elementary coaches.

In this 3-disc DVD package, topics emphasized include:

  • Track Workout - Build your teams aerobic conditioning with these track exercises, starting with the 1 mile run for endurance and dropping in distance all the way down to the 50 yard sprint for explosion.
  • Weight Room Workout - These total body circuit routines start at 30 second intervals and over the course of a season increase to a maximum of 40 seconds the week before the state meet.
  • Practice Structure - Learn when to focus practice on toughness, conditioning, technique and drilling, and when to taper your practice down so your team is fresh for competition.
  • Specialty Moves - Coach Cozart shows some of his favorite moves including foot sweeps, spladles, spladle counters, and the chest crusher (a counter against an opponent's body lock on a sprawl).
  • Jab Step - Cozart emphasizes this basic skill as the key for proper penetration to your opponent's leg.
  • Blast Single Leg - Use this high level single leg attack against your tired opponent to send him to his back with a cradle, a turk, or a navy ride.
  • Finishing Takedowns from your Knees - Develop the technique and toughness to finish after your opponent has sprawled on you - drilling to a double leg, high crotch, single leg, and head in the middle (Iranian) finish.

Above all, this DVD will help coaches organize their practices, starting with a good cardio warm-up and moving on to daily basic drills. From there, you can teach the techniques you want to see your team perform in competition. Your team will find success on the mat through repetition of these drills. Gauge your team on what they are doing in live wrestling and adjust the next practice accordingly.

Let Coach Cozart help you build champions and a "Streak" of your own!

435 minutes (3 DVDs). 2012.

Coach Cozart begins by putting the team through a track practice, followed immediately with a circuit in the weight room. From there, Coach moves his team to the mat as they do their basic skills warm-up that includes acrobatics, scrambles, neck work and back arches. The drilling portion of Cozart's practice includes top position work, neutral arm up drilling (horning up), hand fighting, bottom position drilling, and takedowns on your knees from a sprawled opponent. He finishes off practice with 30 minutes of live wrestling.

Techniques include hip heists, leg ride counters, and arm up (horn up) drills. Drags and ankle picks are covered from standing position, and arm chop and spiral series are covered from top position. After 30 minutes of live wrestling, Coach Cozart puts his team through a "warm-down", consisting of three sets of rope climbing partnered off with various calisthenics designed to work his team hard.

While beginning with the team's standard basic skills drills and ending with live wrestling, this practice focuses more on techniques from the neutral position. Takedowns drilled are single legs, arm drags, duck unders, ankle picks, and firemen carries.

Tapering down, Coach Cozart puts the team through the most technique-oriented practice of the week, one that he traditionally uses the day before a tournament. Each team member performs his favorite technique from all three starting positions. Coach demonstrates how to troubleshoot a stalemate position from a single leg attack that he has been seeing in live wrestling this week. He also goes over some of his favorite specialty moves. The team focuses on upper body throws including attacks from collar ties, underhooks, whizzers, lateral tie-ups (over-under position), and bear hugs.

All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's practice can be costly. That

by Coach T

I have purchased quite a few DVDs over the past year and the quality of the instruction is first rate. However, Russ Cozart’s DVD is like being inside the mind of a genius for an entire week. His approach is simple, organized, and insightful. I recommend this DVD to all new coaches, like myself, who are looking for a template on how to train your wrestlers for greatness. This DVD and the ones by Ken Chertow is the standard bearer when it comes to training high school wrestlers. I highly recommend this DVD.
