Alex Sebahie, a two-time state medalist at Paramus, was killed early New Year's day in a single-vehicle accident on the Garden State Parkway, according to Allison Pries of NJ Advance Media.
Sebahie, who collected 100 wins during his time as a Paramus wrestler, was a junior at Rider University on a partial wrestling scholarship.
Paramus wrestling coach Chris Falato remembered Sebahie as an amazing and fierce competitor -- and a great person, according to Jerry DeMarco of Daily Voice.
'He was an incredible part of our program and person,' Falato said. 'He touched the lives of everyone in the program. He will be sorely missed by the entire wrestling community.'
Paramus Mayor Rich LaBarbiera expressed his condolences.
Former teammate and four-time state high school wrestling champion Nick Suriano saw Sebahie recently.
'Alex was always real and respectful to me, it went both ways,' said Suriano, a Rutgers wrestler. 'I always had respect for Alex, his brothers and his family. We climbed the rec and high school ranks together -- although at different schools, still representing Paramus.'
'My family and I extend our deepest condolences to the Sebahie family.'
