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. Shawn’s father, Mark Contos, is now wrestling coach at Maumee High School, and Shawn is continuing the family tradition.

Shawn is now part of the staff at Penn State University, where he serves as strength and conditioning coach. The Nittany Lions wrestling squad last month won its fourth consecutive NCAA D-I national title.

Basketball has always been my favorite sport. I always told myself I wanted to go to the next level. I’m thankful for getting a scholarship. I’m just trying to work hard these two years (at Columbus State) so I can go Division I or D-II my last two years.”

Coach Craig Meinzer’s squad lost to Maumee, 4-1, last Saturday and followed that with 14-3 and 8-1 losses to Fremont Ross and Northwood, respectively, this week.
