Head coaches Mark Moos and John Rositano were both selected as Lake Erie League Coach of the Year for their respective sports.
The varsity wrestling team this year was very young with only one senior yet the team showed a lot of progress throughout the season making them poised to make some noise next season. They turned some heads late in the season as they finished runner-up to Maple Hts at the Lake Erie League Tournament.
This is Coach Moss’ 4th year as the head wrestling coach at Lorain High School. He is a graduate of St. Edward High School where he was a 4-time state placer (4th, 2nd, 1st, 1st), Junior Freestyle Champion, and Senior National Champion. He was ranked #1 in his weight class in the country as both a junior and senior. After graduating from high school, Coach Moos went on to the University of Michigan where he was a 4-year starter and 3-time Big Ten placer (5th, 4th, 4th). Before becoming the head coach at Lorain High, Coach Moos was an assistant coach at Southview HS (2008-2010), St. Edward HS (2009-2012, and Avon Lake HS (2012-2013).
