Jesse Dellavecchia's Finals Match

March 20, 2021
• Rider University’s Jesse Dellavecchia stunned top-seeded Ryan Deakin of Northwestern with a fall in 3:18 in their 157-pound semifinal of the NCAA Division I wrestling championships last night. Dellavecchia, a 2015 graduate of East Islip High School became the first Long Islander to reach the NCAA Division I wrestling finals since Shoreham-Wading River’s Jesse Jantzen won the 2004 title at 149 pounds. Dellavecchia is 11-0 on the season. He won four matches in the tournament to advance to Saturday’s final at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis. The senior pinned Deakin with a half nelson after a scramble mid-way through the second period. --Andy Slawson

Becoming Elite in Life and Leadership

Life & Leadership

Author Tom Ryan calls this “chosen suffering.” He knows that success comes with a price, paid for by the daily choices we make. He also believes every person encounters “unchosen suffering,” the type that brings us to our knees. In Coach Ryan's darkest hour, he and his family discovered joy, peace, and hope.

Coach Ryan walks you through the pages of his life and shares his moments of "chosen & unchosen suffering."
