Kyle Dake leads All-American coaching cast in Lansing youth wrestling program
March 14, 2017


The talent bunched into a small padded room in the back of Lansing High School on any wintry Tuesday or Thursday evening would boggle a wrestling fan's mind.

There are a combined five state titles, five NCAA championships and two U.S. National team members between the four collegiate All-Americans who tower over bouncing bunches of possible future Lansing Bobcat stars.

Bellowing the loudest instructions and bouncing the most on the final night of the recreation department's annual program is the 26-year-old 2016 Olympic alternate who made wrestling history and had even the most casual of sports fans turning their heads: 2009 Lansing graduate and two-time New York state champion Kyle Dake.
