Sean Finkbeiner plans to rebuild Athens Wrestling
August 27, 2012Athens Drive High School
Athens Drive High School in Raleigh, North Carolina has hired a new Head Wrestling Coach Sean Finkbeiner , who was a Pennsylvania Wrestling State Champion at Northampton High School and a 3x High School National Wrestling Champion. He was also an NCAA Division I All-American at Penn State University and a member of The United States World Team in Greco-Roman.
I’m looking forward to using my knowledge and experiences in wrestling to rebuild the program at Athens Drive that was 0 – 8 and has 5 returning wrestlers from last year. I’m looking forward to working with WRAL which is the 2nd oldest wrestling tournament in North Carolina. I’m excited about the strong family based academic and athletic environment here at school. During Freshmen Orientation, we had seventeen wrestlers sign up with more parents emailing Athletic Director Alvin Thompson regarding the oldest and toughest sport in the world.
The team will experience a Division I wrestling, weight lifting and conditioning practices to make them better athletes for all sports and better prepare the athletes we share for an academic and athletic career in college. I’ve already introduced the wrestlers to some exercises by bringing in almost a ton of dumbbells to add to the weight room to make it happen.
My wife Sabrina, who is the new Career Development Coordinator located in the Library, and I have found a new home and we look forward to watching our daughter Brynne graduate this year and tenth grade son Grant play soccer and wrestle for the Jaguars.
