Despite retiring from coaching the prep and collegiate level five-plus years ago, Tom Beyer still remains with the sport of wrestling.

He said, “My grandson asked me to coach him, and how can you say no to that?”

Beyer coached wrestling for 26 years at Willmar High School and did another five-year stint with Ridgewater College until 2011-2012.
