East County: Former wrestler still helping teens grapple with life
Shannon Yancey, a Brentwood resident and physical education teacher at Oakley's Freedom High, had a successful 10-year wrestling career. Her skills on the mat took her all the way to "American Gladiators," where she competed for a season on the popular TV show.
Master teacher Nancy Fierro will instruct selected local students who will perform at the Pittsburg event.
The 13th annual Brentwood Liberty Idol competition opens at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m. Friday at Liberty High School's Performing Art Center. Tickets at the door will be $8 for students and $10 for general public. Proceeds will go to ALS Association.
