TSWWF was created in 2015 to provide financial assistance to Oregon youth wrestlers and wrestling programs. Through this mission, we are focused on paying forward Tyrone’s love and passion for the sport that inspired and influenced him to become the exemplary man and warrior he was. As a state champion in 1989, he learned values from wrestling that became an integral part of his Navy SEAL ethos that he called upon on September 11, 2012, in Benghazi, Libya, courageously fighting to defend the lives of his colleagues and Ambassador Christopher Stevens and Sean Smith. He never quit and even though he perished doing what was right, his heroic actions helped save the lives of 30 other people. To honor him and maintain his legacy of intrepidity and valor, TSWWF emphasizes his winning spirit, his “never quit” attitude, endurance, inspiration, grit, and loyalty. In addition to promoting wrestling achievements, we also emphasize academic excellence, community service, and an exemplary code of ethics that will help these young wrestlers find success both on and off the mat.
