Hayden Taylor nominated for 2020 Dan Gable Mr. and Ms. Wrestler of the Year

Fans can vote through Feb. 7

BOONE– Hayden Taylor of Solon is among a handful of Iowa high school wrestlers nominated for the Dan Gable Mr. and Ms. Wrestler of the Year Awards.
Fans have the ability to vote, once per day, for their top wrestler in each category until Feb. 7, when votes will be tallied from IWCOA and the fan vote to reach the top three. The finalists will be invited to IAWrestle’s premier event War at the West Gym, on March 14, held on the University of Northern Iowa campus, where a winner will be announced in each category prior to the event.
Fareway and BodyArmor present the Dan Gable Mr. and Ms. Wrestler of the Year Awards in coordination with IAwrestle and the Iowa High School Wrestling Coaches Association (IWCOA).
The IWCOA accepted nominations from high school coaches for student athletes in each of the three state wrestling classes for the men and combined all classes for the women’s award, regardless of their year in school and weight class. A committee selected by the IWCOA provided IAwrestle with a list of seven finalist candidates for public input.
The two runner-up student athletes in each category receive finalist award plaques. A duplicate Wrestler of the Year trophy and a duplicate Wrestler of the Year runner-up plaques will be provided to each high school finalists attend for permanent placement in the high school trophy case.
