Six years ago, Shawn Contos was coaching wrestling at Eastwood High School.

He is the grandson of the late Steve Contos, a Waite graduate and a member of that school’s athletic hall of fame for his football prowess. After a football career at the University of Michigan, Steve Contos once held NCAA Division I all-time receiving records. Steve went back to Waite to become principal.
