NFA's Maxx DeCapua Commits to Wrestle at Johnson & Wales
Maxx DeCapua has single-handedly rewritten the Newburgh Free Academy wrestling team’s record book.
He owns every lifetime Goldbacks’ record and along with teammate Tyler Serafini, has been the backbone of the program for the last four years. DeCaupua's 213 wins are a school record. He also has the most pins, and number of matches wrestled. He’s also ranked fourth in Section 9 in career victories.
It’s an impressive resume that DeCapua will bring with him as he recently committed to attend and wrestle at Division III Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R.I.
He’s been in the Newburgh Free Academy wrestling program since he was a seventh grader, but he’s been in the kids’ program for years before that.
“I’ve been on the team six years and I’ll miss the team,” DeCapua said. “Everyone works hard, and everyone works together ever day. Everyone wants to be good and everything wants to be better.”
The NFA Wrestling team is coached by Coach Chris Leggett.
