    Thank you to all the coaches in the northwest Iowa duals. I enjoyed watching this. I love to watch my grandsons participate in sports and out of all of them wrestling teaches so much that they can have an advantage in most other sports. Again Thanx and if the stuffed shirts in the OIC can’t see wrestling is very popular they should have been in Des Moines these past few days. Des Moines and the Wells Fargo did an awesome job.
