Class of 2023
Roy Seeger wrestled at Lake Forest High School and returned as a volunteer coach 1982. This motivated Roy to pursue a college degree that would allow him to coach. He graduated from University of Northern Colorado in 1988 and returned to Lake Forest as assistant wrestling and football coach. In 1993 Roy took over as Head Wrestling Coach and his Lake Forest teams excelled quickly setting a record for single season wins at Lake Forest on the way to winning 67 duals over 5-years.
Running a business in Prospect, led Roy to look for other coaching opportunities closer to home and work. He reunited with his friend, IWCOA Hall of Famer Dale Eggert, whom Roy had coached with in the early 90’s. Roy spent 5 years as the assistant coach at Libertyville High School before Mundelein High School recruited him to lead their program. Roy turned Mundelein into a contender winning 43 duals over 3 seasons. A new superintendent joined Mundelein that year and required all head coaches to be teachers in the building triggering Roy to return to Libertyville.
During the next 8 years at Libertyville, he helped produce 7 All-Staters, 6 NSC Conference Championships, 6 Regional Championships, and the team that placed 4th in the IHSA Dual Team State Tournament. In 2008 Roy was awarded the NWCA Scholastic Division Illinois Assistant Coach of the Year. A turn of events took Roy back to Mundelein for the 2013 season, serving as Head Coach again in 2016.
Roy is the President & CEO of AECC Mobility in Mt. Prospect, IL and serves as an assistant wrestling coach for Libertyville High School for his 37th year of coaching. Roy & Stacy split their time living in Illinois and Colorado.
