Wrestling Wagners build on each other's success
March 31, 2017


As the eldest Wagner brother described a difference in excitement being an assistant coach versus an assistant coaching a brother, the youngest Wagner couldn’t help but smile.

“Sometimes I think he’s more into the match than I am,” South Seneca senior Adam said while seated next to his brother, Ian, in the school’s wrestling room in March.

“I don’t know if he misses it or he can sense that I’m out there and he feels something and he likes the excitement.”

Adam finished his final Falcon year as runner-up in the 145-pound weight class at the New York State wrestling championships at Times Union Center in Albany, his only loss on a 45-1 senior year that also ended a three-brother grapple on wrestling success over the past decade.
