David Derby

David’s journey began with his own personal struggles. Growing up in a neighborhood plagued by drugs and crime, he knew he had to break free from that cycle. Wrestling became his refuge. When he relocated to Lake Panasoffkee, he noticed a void in wrestling programs for local youth. Determined to fill that void, he founded the Lake Panasoffkee Wrestling Club.



The club operates out of the Lake Panasoffkee Methodist Church. The club’s doors are open from Monday to Thursday, welcoming both boys and girls who want to challenge themselves physically and mentally.
