Springstead wrestling assistant receives national honor

Springstead assistant Sal Basile was named the Regional Assistant Coach of the Year by the National Wrestling Coaches Association.

Basile, who has been on staff with the Eagles under head coach Eric Swensen the past seven years, is a former state-placing wrestler for Springstead under Hall of Fame coach Bob Levija.

After helping lead the program to its first state championship in school history, Basile was the only nominee from Florida to win an award from the NWCA this year. In less than a decade, he has already coached 13 state champions, 17 All-Americans and three national champions.
