Craig Wilson is an Olympic water polo player and 1975 graduate of Davis High School.

Wilson began his water polo career at the age of thirteen with the Davis Recreational Water Polo Team. It was at Davis Senior High School where he began to play goalie and played his way to high school All-American status in 1975. At the University of California, Santa Barbara, Craig did not play water polo until his junior year. He began as a walk on fifth string goalie and concluded his career as the starting goalie, NCAA Champion and NCAA first team All-American. He was invited to join the National Team Training Squad, again as a fifth string goalie and once again, earned the starting job.

Craig was a member and starting goalie for Team USA from 1981 until 1992. A three-time Olympian (1984, 1988, and 1992), Craig has been called, “one of the greatest goalies to ever play the game of water polo.” He currently holds the Olympic record for most saves. Craig won Olympic Silver Medals in 1984 and 1988 and was a member of the 1991 World Cup team. He was also a member of three Pan American Teams winning gold medals in 1983 and 1987, and a silver medal in 1991. Craig competed on Five FINA World Cup Teams for the USA in 1982, 1984, 1988, 1990 and 1991, winning the gold medal in 1991. Twice, he was voted as the World’s Top Goalkeeper.

Craig is a member of the UCSB Hall of Fame, the International Swimming Hall of Fame and the Davis Senior High School Hall of Fame.
