"Here's the pic I took of you and Colton tonight. We're so glad you liked the sign. You truly make such positive impacts on kids' lives every day, and have for so many years. What you do is so much more than just coaching wrestling. You help to instill valuable characteristics in kids that serve them their entire lives. You've made such an impact on our family personally. From Coaching Dave all of those years, helping him to become the amazing man he is to all of us, to now helping to teach Colton the same important life lessons. You're very special to our family, and we're so grateful to have you in our lives!"

Thank you Coach Marc Sprague and Cobra Wrestling ... this is the pay off after nearly 100 camps and 1200 hours. Josh went 14-0 and took home the Triple Crown from USAW Western Regionals in Pocatello.

Chase & Trey Conner, Kody Kagelar and Jeremiah Van Cleve represented the local Cobra Club and took the trip in the van. It was a smaller group then we hoped for but we HAD A BLAST. Between the swimming, Hot Tubbing, Cosmic Bowling and upwards of 16 hours of cradle training... All the boys where excited to get home... The VanCleve family looks forward to Hosting another camp soon.... Lifelong memories are priceless....."|

The camp (2015 WESTERN REGIONAL CAMP) has prepared Diego for competition like I have not seen before. He has wrestled exceptionally well in Freestyle and Folkstyle with only one point scored on him so far. Tomorrow is Greco where his goal is to capture the triple crown. Thank you for inviting him to your camp this year. Diego actually told me today that he feels strong as ever and it’s because of the camp, so thanks again!

If this Marc Sprague you know who I am better than most. I spent years training with you and learning from your hand and I wanted to say thanks you taught me to never give up to always do a little more "and then some" from this I earned many state and national titles I all americaned in college and had a full ride to almost any school I wanted. Now I have a degree and a family I am now training for an elite military group hoping to get accepted. (I am not allowed to say which one ) but I know that if I apply the things I learned within cobra from you I will succeed and I will hunt down those that oppress and kill and defend those that cannot defend themselves. I just wanted to say thanks for all you have taught.
11/23/14 As I recall, last year Josh Neiwert, from Spokane only won 2 matches and did not place at the Big Foot Tournament. However, after a year of hard work and attending over 40 Cobra Camps he went undefeated, did not give up a point and was the outstanding wrestler in his age group at the 2014 Big Foot Tournament.
"If there is anyone on earth that can teach the Granby system, it's Coach Sprague... He changed my life and hundreds of other athletes, on multiple levels!"
"After 30 years of coaching, both as a head coach and as an assistant coach at the high school level, I have never seen a coach more passionate and with technically sound as Coach Marc Sprague. I started taking my son to him when he was 8 years old. We would drive over 3 hours twice a week to get the best coaching in the state of Oregon. I have seen my son grow into a national champion and he is currently ranked in the nation’s top 10 in his weight class. I am so grateful for everything that Coach Sprague has done for my son."

"Cobra camps focus on a specific series of moves then variations in setups and counter attacks to opponents’ reactions, yet are fast paced and interesting enough to keep the kids engaged. These camps don’t go through dozens of moves that the wrestlers don’t really have time to develop and then often forget. Several commented that they learned more useful technique in one week than from all the camps they had previously attended. We had novice to state finalist in attendance and everyone got better every hour of camp. Coach Sprague’s motivational and lifelong application sessions were a big hit with the athletes. The camp’s real payoff is in seeing the wrestlers actually using the techniques in match competition; that’s when you know they truly learned something."
