Coach Olanowski started Prestige Worldwide as a Sophomore in high school to get some extra competition throughout the off season. In the team’s first event they took a title at their first dual tournament in Hampton Virginia.
In high school Olanowski was a 4x state place-winner and a state champion as a senior. He eventually went on to wrestle at Michigan State University. Olanowski was a varsity letter winner as a freshman, but his career ultimately ended before his junior season due to a series of injuries. He continued his education at MSU and will have a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising upon his commencement in May.
After high school Olanowski took the position as a Head Coach of Prestige Worldwide Wrestling. His passion for the organization made him seek out the opportunity to turn the team into a non-profit organization that funds high school athletes to travel and compete throughout the summer at little to no cost.
Coach LaVey was brought in by Olanowski in 2014 to help coach the team. Since then it's been a perfect match for Prestige Worldwide.
LaVey came to Hanover, Virginia from Pennsylvania his sophomore year of high school. He went on to become a 3-time state place winner, winning a state championship his junior year. LaVey was ranked as high as 14th in the country his senior year of high school.
Gabe attended and wrestled at NC State University his first two years out of high school. To pursue different opportunities Gabe moved back to Virginia to coach where he now is Head Coach at Hanover Hawkeye Wrestling Club.
