Coach Shannon started his athletic career as a varsity wrestler at Mansfield Madison and finished his wrestling career with an 82-15 record. While still in High School, Coach Shannon was introduced to the sport that would forever change his life. Triathlon gave him an opportunity to continue his athletic career and fuel his passion for competitive sports. As the founder of HFP Racing, Coach Shannon has been able to closely watch the sport of triathlon over the last 3 decades go from a fledgling sport for non-traditional athletes to a main stream sport with supporting technology and major advancements in training. Coach Shannon has also been involved with youth sports in several different capacities including youth wrestling and basketball coaching.
