Although he may not look like a typical athlete, it turns out Logan was a total hot-shot in high school athletics. According to Patch, he was an all-star high school football player, and was even better at wrestling. He took fifth place in OHSAA State Championships during his senior year of high school, and ultimately decided to join the wrestling team at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where he enrolled to study industrial engineering.
Apparently, during his short time at Ohio, Logan ended up qualifying for the school’s wrestling championships, according to Metro US. Considering the fact that the school is NCAA-Division 1 for wrestling, that’s a pretty impressive feat. However, the YouTuber ended up deciding to drop out of school in 2014 at the end of his freshman year to move to Los Angeles and further pursue his career as a YouTuber, and thus, his wrestling career was officially over.
This explains why Logan Paul is offering $10,000 to influencers to wrestle him. Per News Week, MMA fighter Dillon Danis offered Logan $1 million to beat him, and pro-wrestler Elijah Burke offered him $15,000. Others who responded included: MMA fighter Mike Davis, ex-hedge fund manager Mike Novogratz, YouTuber James Charles, MMA fighter Tara LaRosa, YouTuber Joel Morris, comedian Fakkah Fuzz, pro-wrestler Joseph Janela, pro-wrestler Thunder Rosa, and pro-wrestler Ethan Page.
