The values he acquired on the mat were an integral part of his Navy SEAL ethos and his 20 year SEAL career and influenced him to become the man he was. He never quit and even though he perished doing what was right, his heroic actions the night of September 11 and morning of September 12 in Benghazi, Libya helped save the lives of 30 other people.
To honor him and his legacy of valor, TSWWF recognizes his "never quit" attitude, determination, inspiration, grit, and loyalty. With the presentation of the annual Tyrone S. Woods Memorial Trophy and scholarship, we encourage and mentor academic excellence, community service, and an exemplary code of ethics for success both on and off the mat.

To be recognized for our charitable efforts to help youth wrestlers by such a prominent and
well-respected business in the Pacific Northwest is truly an honor. Thank you, Les Schwab!
With your donations, TSWWF can help these young athletes and/or wrestling programs in several ways to ensure that the opportunity to participate in the great sport of wrestling is available to them.
For example, through your contributions, TSWWF can purchase new pairs of wrestling shoes, pay-to-play fees, uniforms, or contribute to transportation expenses for out-of-state tournaments. If a wrestling program needs new mats or other equipment, TSWWF can help. Among many needs, these are just a few examples of how your donations will benefit these wrestlers and programs.
You can donate either by check or online.
