As a debater, Prince competed at Apple Valley (MN) both locally and nationally for 3 ½ years. He qualified for the LD Tournament of Champions both Junior and Senior year with a winning record senior year (4-3). He also received invites throughout his career to numerous prestigious round robins, including Valley, Sunvite, Minneapple, Kandi King, and Debate LA.
As a drill instructor, Prince draws from a diverse set of experiences to provide the motivation and insight needed for students to achieve competitive success. His background competing nationally in NCAA Division 1 wrestling, as well as in high school circuit LD tournaments, have helped him develop a greater appreciation and understanding for the process that is preparation AND the art that is competition. Prince brings an intensive focus to every drill session. He expects the same from his students.
"I work to make the most out of every minute spent with a student because I value their time, energy, and resources. I don't care about previous success, just that my students are willing to commit to working hard to improve and achieve competitive greatness."
As a coach, Prince's students have qualified for TFA state, NSDA nationals, and the Tournament of Champions, with an elimination round finish at NSDA nationals.
