Ohio’s Logan Stieber wins the 2010 Dave Schultz High School Excellence National Award



STILLWATER, Okla. " Logan Stieber, a high school senior from Monroeville High School in Monroeville, Ohio has been selected as the national winner of the 2010 Dave Schultz High School Excellence National Award presented by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum.

The High School Excellence Award is named in honor of Olympic and World Champion Dave Schultz. Each award recipient is evaluated on excellence in wrestling, scholastic achievement, character, citizenship, and community service.

Stieber was selected from the 49 state winners and five regional winners that were announced one week ago.

“I never knew Dave Schultz personally but Jeff Jordan, one of my mentors, talked a lot about what type of a wrestler and person he was,” said Stieber. “It is really humbling to get this award and I hope someday I will be as good of a wrestler as Dave Schultz.”

Stieber’s high school career record stands at 184-1. He is a four-time state high school champion and was named Ohio Wrestler of the Year in 2010. He is also a three-time USA Wrestling National champion in freestyle as well as a National Champion in Greco-Roman on the Cadet and Junior levels. In addition, he is a FILA Junior National Champion in Freestyle and placed third in the US Senior Freestyle Open and fourth in the Senior World Team Trials in 2009.

Stieber also participates in other activities such as Spanish Club, FFA, Renaissance, and is a member of the Student Council. He was also the class Vice President for the 2009-2010 academic year. His academic achievements include a 3.78 GPA, recipient of the Presidential Education Academic Award, the Award of Merit, Wendy's Heisman Award as well as being a member of the National Honors Society. He will be attending Ohio State University this fall.

“The selection committee felt that Logan combined an impressive balance of excellence in his academic and wrestling credentials while being an active participant in school activities and giving back to his community in the form of community service,” said Lee Roy Smith, Executive Director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum.

Stieber will attend Honors Weekend on June 4 and 5 to personally accept the award.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Stieber is expected to compete at the U.S. Open in Cleveland this weekend. He was third at this Senior-level event last year as a junior.
