Mr. Dansby, Mesa Athletic Director & PE Teacher

Coach Dansby was raised in Pebble Beach, California. As a young boy he played baseball, basketball and football while dabbling in various other sports like wrestling and gymnastics. As a Freshman, while attending Palma High School in Salinas, he experienced being cut from an athletic team for his first and only time in his life (basketball). Hence, began Dansby’s flourishing wrestling career. While in high school Dansby also competed in Football, Cross-Country and Track & Field.

After graduating high school Dansby continued wrestling at nearby California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo on a scholarship where he was a 2X NCAA qualifier and PAC 10 runner-up. He also qualified for three Final Olympic Trials (1992, 1996 & 2000) in addition to being a 1995 National Team Member in Greco-Roman wrestling.
