Former Queen of Peace head wrestling coach Scot Weaver, who once spent 13 years of his life (1988 through 2001) as the head wrestling coach at Lyndhurst High School, has come home to once again serve as the head wrestling coach at Lyndhurst, according to Jim Hague of Observer Sports.
After QP closed its doors in June of 2017, Weaver was a coach without a home. During this time, Weaver found himself volunteering at Bergen Catholic, where his son Dylan attended and wrestled.
When the head wrestling position at Lyndhurst opened, Weaver, who still resides in the town, decided to put his name into the ring.
Weaver met with Lyndhurst athletic director Jeff Radigan and some parents, and even consulted alumnus and current coach of Rutgers Donny Pritzlaff, before he decided to take the job.
The Golden Bears have been doing remarkably well in Weaver's return. They own a 6-3 dual meet record and finished fifth over the weekend at the prestigious Elizabeth Minuteman Tournament.
