Not many people get to meet their childhood heroes. For Milford resident Scott Schulte, not only has he had the chance to meet his hero, Dan Gable, but he has spent the last two years writing Gable’s biography.
Gable is perhaps the most recognizable wrestler in the country and even the world. He won a gold medal at the 1972 Munich Olympics and then became one of the most successful coaches in college history. His Iowa Hawkeyes won 15 NCAA championships under his guidance. Now Gable remains involved with the sport he loves and is a sought-after motivational speaker.
