Former football player wrestles his way through more than just his opponents

By Caley Chelios

Former Northwestern football player Jack Schwaba, is on the road to wrestling superstardom. He’s traveling around the country performing at various venues including Northwestern’s own Wrestlepocalypse. Schwaba is a maniac in the ring, tearing down his opponents under his stage alias, Jack Sheridan- a country-club rich-kid with no regrets. But his early years as a Northwestern football player presented many challenges for him, and the transition was far from easy.
