Darryl S. Ellrott has dedicated the majority of his adult life to his two great passions: teaching and coaching. Introduced to the sport of wrestling as a child, he used it as a means to rehabilitate his body from he effects of Cerebral Palsy. This life changing experience inspired Darryl to go into education as a teacher and coach. An author and editor, Darryl has taught young people the ins and outs of English and composition as a twenty year veteran of Georgia’s public schools. When he wasn’t instructing students on how to build a better essay, he was on a wrestling mat creating championship teams as a long time Middle School coach. Recently retired, he was a 2009 inductee into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the only Middle School coach in Georgia to have ever been so honored.
