Lillashawn entered the sport at the age of ten with his younger brother (and WCAP teammate) Ellis Coleman. He followed in the footsteps of their former-wrestler stepfather and loved it from the moment he stepped onto a wrestling mat. He played other sports growing up, earning football offensive MVP in grade school even though he was the smallest kid on the team. Still, wrestling remained his passion. After high school, he wrestled at multiple colleges and was the top-ranked athlete in his weight class at each one. Named a world team trials semifinalist his first tournament after boot camp, Lillashawn is now grappling on the world stage.
