PELLA -- Former all-American Daniel Page is Central College's new varsity assistant wrestling coach.
Since 2015, Page served as a volunteer assistant but now joins the Dutch staff on a full-time basis.
A 2015 Central graduate, Page earned all-America distinction that year, placing seventh at the NCAA Division III Championships at 125 pounds. A three-time national qualifier, he was a three-time all-Iowa Conference honoree as well.
A native of Tumwater, Washington, Page received the team's Outstanding Freshman Award in 2012, the Outstanding Performer Award in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and the Lawrence Award for outstanding work ethic in 2015 and 2015. He also served as the 2014-15 team captain and posted a 103-40 career record.
Page was a certified personal trainer in Pella from 2016-17 before entering private business in Des Moines.
"We're extremely excited to bring someone like Daniel back with experience in our program," said coach Eric Van Kley. "He has a great understanding of the Central wrestling culture and is a tireless worker. He's well-organized and energetic. Daniel is a tremendous addition in all areas."
