Who Is Tate Picklo?

My name is Tate Picklo and I was born along side my best friend and twin sister Trinity in Mustang Oklahoma. I was raised in a household that was very competitive and built me into who I am today. I grew up doing almost every sport you can think of, and wrestling just stuck out to me.

I love the physicality and the fact that all the wins and loses are on my shoulders alone. There is no blaming anybody else out on the mat. My dad was a 2 time All-American for Michigan State, and he has been me and my older brother Cameron’s wrestling coach since I was 6 years old.

We were raised in church and taught that our faith came before all. I am very blessed to grow up with two very loving parents who deeply cared about our success when it came to everything from grades to sports. I now wrestle along side my older brother at OU while working with their FCA.

Tate in Action

“Whether it’s wrestling related or me as a person, I want to leave a legacy that doesn’t die when I do. I want to set a standard of what it looks like to be a Christian athlete and how this platform can be used for the better.”
