When it’s time to talk about the strongest Michigan high school athletes of all time, Fowlerville’s Adam Coon will have to be included in the conversation.

Few athletes accomplished what the Fowlerville strong man has. A multi-state champion heavyweight wrestler, Coon was also an all-state football lineman.

During the spring season, Coon could be found putting the shot throwing the discus, and at this year’s Division 2 state finals, he closed out his high school career in a big way. Competing as a high school athlete for the final time, Coon finished second in the state in both events. In the shot put Coon finished with a top put of 57’0″, finishing second to Cadillac’s Riley Norman, while in the discus, Coon topped out at 176’7″ to finish second to Quincy Byrd of Zeeland East.

“I felt I did real good,” Coon said. “I set a new personal best and school record in the shot put, which went pretty well. I thought I threw as well as I could.”

The state meet marked the end of Coon’s track career, as he plans to focus on wrestling in college at the University of Michigan. “I had a lot of fun with track,” Coon said. “I started track in the seventh grade. This is probably the last time I compete in track.”

Now that track has ended, Coon will focus on wrestling. “I have a couple of tournaments coming up this summer,” he said. “I’m going down to Oklahoma, and I’m also going to the trials for the world juniors at the end of July.”

After that, it will be on to the University of Michigan, where a new set of challenges awaits.

“It will be a huge learning curve,” Coon said. “I have to get used to college life and academics. I’m going to train as hard as I can. I will have to see if I’m going to redshirt the first year or make the starting lineup. I’m excited and looking forward to get going with college.”
