Vos was a high school math teacher and head coach of the wrestling team.

In a posting on its blog, the school’s booster club said Vos started as a teacher at the school in 1998 and was an assistant varsity wrestling coach until 2001, when he took over as head coach.

Numerous high school athletic events were called off Tuesday.
