About Mike Wolo
Mike was able to return to his former life as a result of years of hard work and the assistance of his family and friends. Three months after his accident, Mike was able to return to snowmobiling and racing up the mountain peaks of Maine and New Hampshire. Being outdoors was virtually everything to Mike.
Mike returned to riding motorcycles and ATVs only six months after the accident, as well as mountain biking, hiking, boating, and hunting by the end of the summer and into the autumn, gaining the confidence to do and achieve more. Mike’s desire to do more was fueled by his return to such a high level of activity, and he set goals to accomplish everything he once did and more.
In the summer of 2012, weeks before his 40th birthday, he worked out with a semi-professional football squad to get back into peak physical condition after a 16-year hiatus from skiing. After three weeks of working out with the team, he was asked and encouraged to play with the team; however, due to his size and age, Mike assumed he would be a reserve to a backup.
Two hours before the start of the season, the defensive coach asked him if he had experience on the offensive line because they were shorthanded. The majority of Mike’s high school playing career was spent as a nose tackle, and he began a new journey when he was able to fly through the offensive line almost unimpeded as the large linemen struggled to halt a small opponent who was twice as fast as them. He had around 583 followers and 194 following on his Instagram account under the username @titanium_mike110.
