Dan Gable Wrestler of the Year Award Winners



A committee selected by the Iowa High School Wrestling Coaches Association will provide IAwrestle with list of 15 candidates, regardless of their year in school and weight class, for each of the three state wrestling classes.

The top 15 will then be presented online mid-December for a fan vote. Fans will have the ability to vote once per day for their top wrestler in each class until mid-January where it will be narrowed down to the top 10. The fan votes will count as one vote towards the IWCOA’s committee votes. Another round of voting will take place to find our three finalists, whom will be invited to the year end lunch gala where a winner will be announced in each class.

The remaining two student-athletes will each receive a finalist award plaque. A duplicate Ms. and Mr. Wrestler trophy and duplicate Ms. and Mr. Wrestler finalists plaques will be given to each high school where the nominees attend for permanent placement in the high school trophy case.
