Hall of Fame Wrestler Dan Gable was the featured speaker for this year’s Eblen Charities Headlock for Hunger Leadership Dinner at the Mission Hospital/A-B Tech Conference Center that happened on Friday April 28. From what people who were there are saying, Gable gave a very motivating talk on how important it is to be there for people and do things as simple as giving a loved one a phone call. In addition to that, the former wrestler shared a few stories about his exciting career as an Olympic athlete as well as coach for a popular university. The following day Gable held a wrestling clinic and tournament at the nearby Enka Middle School which kicked off at 9 a.m.. Overall, it was an exciting time for the locals of this part of North Carolina.
The Iowa native stuck around his home state for college as he attended the University of Iowa and began his career in wrestling. Part of the motivation for his drive in wrestling goes back to when he was still a teenager and went on a vacation with his parents, and while they were gone his sister who stayed home was murdered during their absence. He wrestled all throughout college and then became the head coach of the team at the University of Iowa in 1976, where he spent the next decade becoming the best coach in the history of the school.
Gable recently visited the Ashville, NC area earlier this year to give a speech for the Eblen Charities Headlock for Hunger Leadership Dinner and Conference, and it was a big success.
