We’re highlighting all the New Jersey Olympians this summer because there are so many to watch for. Frank Molinaro will wrestle in the 65kg weight class for the United States.

Molinaro grew up in Barnegat and was a three-time New Jersey State Champion at Manahawkin’s Southern Regional High School and placed second at High School Nationals. After a redshirt season in his freshman year at Penn State, Molinaro claimed All-American honors four times—becoming the fifth Penn State wrestler to be a four time All-American.

Frank and his wife Kera moved to State College, Pennsylvania recently. His parents, Frank and Michele, still reside in Barnegat and older brother Robert is a graduate from the Naval Academy and now an officer in the Navy. Frank and Kera are expecting their first child in November.
