Never Back Down: Alex Sebahie Foundation Will Help NJ Wrestlers In Need

Alex Sebahie was born a leader and a giver.

The star Paramus wrestler would have given the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He raised thousands of dollars for local and national organizations and in his spare time, he enjoyed mentoring younger grapplers.

Although the 21-year-old died when his car went off the Garden State Parkway hitting a utility pole New Years Day, his name lives on through Never Back Down: The Alex Sebahie Foundation.

The nonprofit organization will raise money to help New Jersey wrestlers and teams in need, covering costs of registration, tournaments, camps and equipment.

"With this organization, we hope to keep Alex’s name and message alive by giving back to those who need it because that is exactly what Alex would want," the site says.

"Alex saw the wrestling community as his family, and we hope to inspire many other wrestlers to ' Never Back Down .'"
