A former standout lineman for the Golden Tornadoes from 1991-94, Jason Wargo is entering his sixth season as offensive line coach. “Jason is one of the most loved coaches by his players and he does a great job of developing the young players,” says Coach Geno DeMarco. His passion for Geneva College and his loyalty to the purpose of the Golden Tornadoes football program is what motivates him as a coach.
Wargo played for the Golden Tornadoes in the early 90’s and was on Coach DeMarco’s first team in 1993. Following his playing days, he began coaching in the high school ranks at Union in 1995 and 1996 and then at Freedom in 1997. He then moved on to the college ranks with coaching stops at Thiel College in 1998 and 1999 and then onto Geneva with two stints from 2000-2002 and 2008-present.
To add to his coaching duties Wargo also serves as the Associate Head Coach for Geneva’s Men’s and Women’s Track and Field teams. Along with his football career Wargo was also an accomplished thrower in his time at Geneva. Coach Wargo is also an instructor in the Physical Education department at Geneva.
Jason and his wife Rachel reside in Franklin.
