Wayne Van Burger

A teacher and coach for 35 years, Wayne was recognized twice as Oregon Career Educator of the Year and once as National Career Educator of the Year.

As Head Wrestling Coach for 21 years at Marshfield High School, his teams placed first or second in district for 20 of the 21 years, with a combined record of 238 Wins, 72 Losses and 6 Draws.

Wayne feels right at home in front of the camera where he can still educate and introduce people to the beauty of the world that surrounds them.

A fifth generation Oregonian, Wayne grew up with a fishing rod in hand and a love of the outdoors. His goal is to share that passion through his outdoor television series.
