Avon High School wrestling standout Zane Zeman has made school history before the wrestling season even started.
The senior signed a national letter of intent on Wednesday to attend the University of Minnesota.
Athletic director Erich Frombach said that Zeman is the first Avon High athlete to get an athletic scholarship to a Big Ten school.
He’s also the first Avon wrestler to get a Division I scholarship, coach Mark Porter said.
“Minnesota recognized a lot of things in Zane we’ve seen,” Porter said. “He’s improved every year. He’s focused and extremely hard-working. But he’s not an egomaniac. Wrestling is an individual sport, but he cares a lot about the team and his teammates.”
Zeman plans to study bioengineering.
