Andrew Criswell

My name is Andrew Criswell. I am a Tualatin High school alumni. I’m very excited to be a part of the staff here at Liberty!


Hunter Dehlin

My name is Hunter Dehlin, I wrestled for Coach Givens for 4 years and went on to wrestle in college for a top 10, DIII college in the country. I started my freshman season for Givens as a novice wrestler, not even getting a varsity match. Yet I stayed through the trials and tribulations that wrestling will throw at everyone and Givens helped me every step of the way. He helped me become the first State Finalist for Liberty, 2x state placer, 3x district finalist and district champion. His lessons went much further than wrestling, molding a mindset for life, and I hope to return all of Givens’ lessons to this amazing group of athletes. 2018-19 is my first year coaching.
