Perhaps one of the greatest wrestlers in Boston State history, Louis Mancini '73 was a four-year letter winner with the Warriors. During one of the most distinguished careers in the program's history, Mancini posted an undefeated 42-0 record in dual matches. Named a three-time co-captain by his coaching staff and teammates, Mancini was perhaps the greatest competitor in the 142 lbs. weight class.
As a sophomore, Mancini led the Warriors to a third place finish at the New England State College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) championship tournament. It was in that year that Mancini notched his first conference championship, with a win in the 142 lbs. division. He was selected as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player as well. Named a two-time team MVP, Mancini closed out his college career with an overall record of 48-5.
In the classroom, Mancini earned a pair of bachelor’s degrees, first earning his BS in Physical Education from Boston State. He then earned his BS in Art from Framingham State College. Mancini then spent the next 30 plus years coaching high school wrestling, cross-country, and track and field.
After a 33-year career at Ashland High School in Ashland, Massachusetts, Mancini retired from the education system. However his dedication to children has not waivered as he continues to sponsor physical fitness programs for the children of Ashland.
Today, Mancini owns and operates his own business, Mancini Signs. He and his wife Geri still live in Ashland with their three children Michelle, Brenda, and Paul. They are also the proud grandparents of five grandchildren.
