Jon was a 3x All-American (2nd, 2nd, 3rd) and a 3-time EIWA champion in 3 post-seasons, missing the 2001 post-season due to detached and torn retinae in February. That year, as a r/s freshman, he owned wins vs. the 2001 NCAA 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th place winners. The saga of his senior year in 2004-05 (Lehigh’s best team in more than 30 years) was converted into a popular movie, entitled: “Veritas: The Story of Jon Trenge.” His 5th place finish at the 2004 Olympic Trials is Lehigh’s highest since Bobby Weaver in 1984.
In short, Jon has competed at the highest levels and firmly carved out his place in wrestling history. His highly decorated career has won the hearts of fans and movie critics.
