Joe Colon kicked off UNI Wrestling team

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -
University of Northern Iowa head wrestling coach Doug Schwab announced junior Joe Colon has been dismissed from the Panther wrestling program.

"Joe had previously been suspended during the fall semester as a result of not fulfilling the social and academic obligations of a student-athlete at the University of Northern Iowa," Schwab said. "Subsequently, Joe failed to honor the conditions he agreed to in order to be eligible for reinstatement as a student-athlete.

"The standard of excellence we demand in the wrestling room extends to every aspect of a student-athlete's life. The most important thing for Joe right now is to commit himself outside of wrestling the same way he committed to wrestling. If that happens, we would welcome Joe back for his senior season."
