Our varsity wrestling team is headlined by senior, Jakob Koleszar (152 lbs.) a returning State Alternate from a year ago. We have 2 returning district qualifiers in Jakob Koleszar (Sr.) and Brandon D’Egidio (Jr.). The core of our team is still very young and lacks experience, however, the team as a whole works extremely hard! Currently we have only one freshman, seven sophomores, two juniors, and two seniors on the team…very few are willing to put in the time and effort these young men do on a daily basis. Today’s featured senior athlete is Jakob Koleszar

Here’s a little bit about Jakob in his own words:

     How long have you been playing this sport?

I’ve been wrestling for 8 years.

     What are you looking for out of this season?

I’m looking for a successful and memorable season.    

     What’s your favorite Vermilion sports moment?

Districts, 2018. Running through opponents.  

     What other activities do you participate in?     


     What are your plans after graduation?

I plan to attend Cleveland State University going to school for Physical Therapy.  

How do you hope to “Fill the Sails” and leave a legacy for future Vermilion athletes?

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
