About Iowa Wrestling Hall of Fame
Genuine and amazing Iowans along with their athletic success in wrestling have a strong foothold in Cresco, Northeast Iowa, and the State of Iowa. Wrestling has always been in Iowa’s bloodlines and the Iowa Wrestling Hall of Fame tells this story second to none.
Established in April 1970, the Hall of Fame honors native-born Iowans who have contributed to amateur wrestling as either a wrestler, coach or official. However, recipients who were born in Iowa are not required to attend an Iowa school.
“More than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride.
Some have wrestled without great skill - none have wrestled without great pride”. Dan Gable, Inductee
Iowa Wrestling Hall of Fame.
