Kennard-Dale High School standout Chance Marsteller is the 2014 Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award winner.
The national award was presented by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum.
The award is based on excellence in wrestling, school work, citizenship and community service.
Marsteller was selected from the 49 state winners and five regional winners who were announced on May 6 by the NWHOF.
"I am very honored to have been nominated for the Dave Schultz award," Marsteller said in a news release. "When it comes to wrestling greats, one of the most remembered was Dave Schultz, on and off the mat. Growing up, I always heard stories of his work ethic and what a great person he was off the mat. In turn, to receive this award is truly humbling and a great way to cap off my senior year of high school."
Marsteller is a four-time Pennsylvania high school state champion, who earned the Outstanding Wrestler Award three times at the event. He put together an unblemished 166-0 record while at Kennard-Dale. He claimed two-straight USA Wrestling Freestyle Cadet national titles after he won the 2011 Greco-Roman Cadet national championship. Marsteller was most recently named the 2014 American Family Insurance ALL-USA Wrestler of the Year by USAToday and was honored by Intermat as the 2014 Wrestler of the Year.
He established the Pride Wrestling Club in his hometown to help train and coach wrestlers ages 8-18. He also volunteers as a coach with Kennard-Dale Youth Wrestling. On the scholastic side, he carries a 3.33 grade-point average and will attend Oklahoma State University this fall as a projected 174 pounder.
The Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award is named in memory of World and Olympic champion Dave Schultz.
Marsteller will attend Honors Weekend on June 20-21, to accept his award.
