Stan Zeamer, of Manheim, Pennsylvania, has been involved in wrestling for many years -- from serving as a leader at the highest levels to success as an athlete and coach. He is involved with FCAW because "it will build a culture of moral leadership as did Athletes in Action."
Stan currently serves on the Board of Governors for the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, and served as its chairman for a number of years. His leadership has helped the Hall of Fame grow and expand its activities for the sport. He also served as the president of the Pennsylvania chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame from 1993-2003. In that capacity, Stan helped organize highly successful banquets for the honored inductees, setting a standard for how state chapters of the Hall of Fame should operate.
Zeamer graduated from Manheim Central High School in Pennsylvania, where he was a two-time district champion, two-time regional champion, and the Most Valuable Wrestler at the high school level.
As an undergraduate, he attended Northwest Missouri State University, where he was a 1970 NCAA Division II National Champion and two-time All American. He was the Outstanding Wrestler at Northwest Missouri State in 1969, set a number of school wrestling records, and completed his career never having been pinned.
Stan served in a number of coaching positions on the junior high, high school, and college levels, with his first assignment in 1970 as the head coach at Manheim Central High School, his alma mater. His coaching career has gone full circle, as he is presently the head coach at Manheim Central Middle School. His college coaching positions have included head coach and assistant coach at Franklin and Marshall College, assistant coach at Clarion University, assistant coach at Elizabethtown College, and assistant coach at Wheatland Middle School.

Zeamer also received the Meritorious Service Award from the National Wrestling Coaches Association in 2003, and was named Lancaster/ Lebanon Middle School Coach of the Year in 2004. He has also founded "building Leaders in Life" -- a respected leadership development program.
After receiving his Master's degree from Slippery Rock University, Zeamer went on to become a successful businessman.
