Education and careerEdit

Stieber went to Monroeville High School, in Monroeville, Ohio, and won five Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) state wrestling championships (four individually, and a team title for Monroeville in 2010), losing only once his entire high school career, to David Taylor of St. Paris Graham. Stieber finished his Monroeville career with a record of 184-1, and his 179 straight wins is still an OHSAA record as of 2016.

Stieber later committed to Ohio State University, where he became one of the most decorated wrestlers in NCAA history.

Already a four-time Big Ten Champion, on March 21, 2015, Stieber became only the fourth wrestler in NCAA history to win four individual National Championships. He also led the Ohio State Buckeyes to their first team National Championship for wrestling in school history.[3]

Stieber finished his NCAA career with a record of 119-3.

Following college, Stieber went on record as stating he would be training in hopes of joining Team USA for the 2016 Summer Olympics.[4] Steiber would later represent Team USA on its 2017 World Team. Stieber retired in April 2019 and will be coaching at the Ohio RTC Center.
