Dakota Grappler

In 1999, Jon Gums started Dakota Grappler.   The vision was to give wrestling a voice, wrestling was pretty much overlooked by sports pages.  Dakota Grappler was about to give wrestling a powerful voice, give wrestlers recognition they deserve and to provide the wrestling fans with a source of wrestling info.  After the first three years covering North Dakota, Dakota Grappler added South Dakota and for almost 20 year have brought fans a preview book of most if not all the high school wrestling teams.  In 2003 the website was started.  Here we are today still working on promoting the sport we love so much.
