There is a long history of wrestling in Fort Dodge Iowa with generations of wrestlers that have taken to the mat (past place winners). This could be one reason why the sport is in the blood of this town. There is never a lack of support within the community and fans have never let this program down.
There is a passion for the sport in this town, its almost a way of life for many. Many families have little ones starting young to some day head to one of the biggest high school tournaments in the nation. The state high school wrestling tournament will draw 13,000 to 15,000 fans and Fort Dodge is well represented within that number.
Although wrestling in a since is an individual sport its the school, coaches, parents, students and the entire town that help catapult these athletes and this program.
GO DODGER FANS!!
