Every member of the Beat the Streets staff is here for one reason. TO HELP KIDS. We chose to use the sport of wrestling to accomplish this.
Why wrestling? Wrestling is arguably the oldest of all sports but the lessons it teaches are as relevant today as they ever have been: determination, self confidence, discipline, and most importantly hard work.
At Beat the Streets we believe that EVERY child has the potential to be a productive member of our community if they are given the proper support and opportunity, and one great aspect of wrestling is that any body can wrestle. Boy, girl, tall, short, husky or thin, every one will participate and everyone will have the chance to grow as a result. As one of the greatest wrestlers and coaches, Dan Gable, said, “More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill – none have wrestled without pride.”
Tyson Dippery joins us as Head Coach of the Beat the Streets program at the Lancaster Recreation Commission location after competing at Division I Rider University, where he graduated in May 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. Throughout his five-year collegiate career, Dippery compiled a 101-48 career record. He transferred from Rutgers University where he was a 2016 NCAA Qualifier at 149 lbs. and a Big Ten Championships placewinner – finishing sixth.
A native of Harrisburg, Dippery was a two-time PIAA State Finalist for wrestling-powerhouse Central Dauphin High School, graduating with the most wins in both school and district 3 history with 183. He was a three-time Fargo All-American, placing twice in Greco and once in Freestyle.
Isaias Rodriguez serves as Head Coach of the Beat the Streets program practicing at the McCaskey High School location. Coach Rodriguez graduated from JP McCaskey High School in 1998. He wrestled for Millersville University while earning a degree in education. Coach Rodriguez returned to McCaskey High School to serve as an Assistant Coach for 7 years. These years gave him the experience to take over as Head Coach in 2014 where he currently leads the Red Tornado Wrestling Program. Coach Rodriguez has been a Fourth Grade teacher at Martin Luther King Elementary in Lancaster for the past 10 years.
We have gathered a great group of young men to be role models for the young men and women of Central PA.
Current NCAA Div I wrestlers from Franklin&Marshall College Brett Kulp, Cole Aaron, Chris Bolletino and 2016 & 2018 NCAA Championship Qualifier Antonio Pelusi along with Div II wrestlers from Millersville University will be working with both Beat the Streets Lancaster programs.
