This winter, Costanzo (38-5) won his second straight Class LL and State Open championships and finished second in New England.
He is the third Danbury wrestler to win wrestler of the year honors. Anthony Hayes (2003) and Leo Lopes (1997) were other Danbury wrestlers named the state's top wrestler.

and S tournaments while meeting academic requirements.
