Owner & Operator
Jeff Upson became involved in the sport of wrestling at age ten and created the Pennsylvania rankings website Pa Power Rankings five years later in December 2004. Jeff wrestled for the Central Dauphin Youth Program, the Central Dauphin Junior High Program, and eventually the Central Dauphin High School Program coached by Jeff Sweigard. Despite not having a glorified varsity career, Jeff explains that “the sport of wrestling has taught me discipline, respect and intensity. I did not walk out of the Central Dauphin High School wrestling room with state, region, or sectional medals but I did take with me lifelong friendships.” Jeff graduated from West Virginia University in May 2010 with a BA degree in Criminology and Investigations. Jeff then spent one year in London, England where he completed a MA degree in International Criminology, maintaining his website throughout. Throughout all of these different roads Jeff continued to provide PA State Rankings and coverage of wrestling. Jeff resides in Pittsburgh, PA where he is a Police Officer for the City of Pittsburgh.
