Sean Richmond, the athletic director of Stroudsburg High School and a graduate of Easton Area High School, passed away, leaving the wrestling communities in the Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania in sadness.

A tractor trailer travelling north on Interstate 380 struck and killed Richmond just after six o’clock on Saturday, according to Monroe County Coroner Tom Yanac of lehighvalleylive.com. State police estimate that the collision occurred close to mile marker 1.4. After being transported to the St. Luke’s Hospital–Monroe campus in Stroudsburg, Richmond was subsequently declared deceased.

Yanac stated on Monday morning that the cause and manner of Richmond’s death are still being looked into.

Richmond wrestled at Easton and won two state medals. He carried on with his career at the University of Pittsburgh, where he qualified for the NCAA and won an EWL medal.

In a statement released on X (formerly Twitter), the Easton sports department wrote, “We are disturbed and heartbroken by the passing of Sean Richmond.” “Despite moving to Stroudsburg for his professional career, Sean remained an integral part of the Easton family, keeping tight ties and interactions with numerous people.”

“We shall miss him terribly.”

Richmond returned to Easton after graduating from college to work as Steve Powell’s assistant coach. In 2016, he was appointed head coach at Stroudsburg, and in 2018, he took on the position of athletic director for the Mountaineers.

In a statement, District 11 on X said, “Our whole District XI family mourns the death of Sean Richmond.” Sean was an AD and a capable coach who had a great deal of concern for the Stroudsburg High players. We’ll all miss him very much. Greetings to his wife, kids, and complete family, as well as the Mountie family.

In December, Richmond, the wrestling coach at Stroudsburg, celebrated his 100th victory.

Head coach of Easton wrestling at the moment, Jody Karam, posted on X, saying she was “saddened by the unfortunate passing of Easton wrestling graduate and former assistant coach Sean Richmond.” Sean’s participation in our programme has improved it. The Stroudsburg community has benefited from Sean’s influence as a coach and administrator.

With almost 100 victories under his belt, Richmond was a part of Easton’s heyday as a wrestler. Over the course of his four years on the squad, the Red Rovers won four straight PIAA Class 3A team titles.

Legend of Nazareth Sammy Sasso posted on X, “Heartbreaking news.” Sean Richmond was an excellent instructor and individual. For all his athletes, he genuinely cared. Since I was a child, he has always treated me incredibly well. For the Richmond family, let us pray.

On Sunday, a GoFundMe campaign was created in support of the Richmond family. Richmond leaves behind two kids and his wife, Krista.

Pennsylvania State Police in Hazleton are now investigating the collision that occurred on Saturday.
