DADE CITY – Former Pasco Wrestling coach Mark DeAugustino held The Tuff Team Tournament every year since his first year at the school 20 years ago. DeAugustino, who still teaches at Pasco moved over to Zephyrhills Christian to coach the Warriors in 2017. The tradition that was started by Coach “D” at Pasco was picked up by the Pirates current coach Josh Thornton who has enlarged the tournament over the past two years to now 14 teams that will be competing for the trophies on February 2nd.

CSSN will be covering the event and posting photos and results. With our busy schedules we can’t give the minor sports a lot of coverage during the season, so we are more than happy to dedicate the time and effort to bring this event to our site.
