Got Game: Adam Coon
By Christopher Parish
Name: Adam Coon
Got Game: There are a lot of ways to describe Coon's impressive wrestling career thus far. But world champion? That's the most impressive by far. The senior, who's the reigning Division 1 state champ at 215 pounds, won a Cadet World Championship in Hungary, beating a competitor from the nation of Georgia in the 100 kg (220 pound) freestyle category. He's the first American to win a world championship in the event since 1999. That's a pretty impressive accomplishment to bring into this season's competition. Let's see what the grappler can do next.
