Put me in, Coach

Friday, March 16, 2012

Cherokee native Dewey Hupke, left, coordinator of the annual Northwest Iowa Coaches & Officials Association High School Senior All-Star Wrestling Meet in Cherokee last week, was a happy camper afforded the opportunity to reminisce with his "old" high school coach Jim Lewallen, who was among the honorees at Friday's meet here. The Braves' highly successful wrestling coach from 1969 to 1990 and a multiple time Northwest Iowa Coach of the Year honoree, Lewallen coached Dewey and his brothers Ben and Chris - all outstanding prep wrestlers. Cherokee senior heavyweight and State Meet qualifier Miah Back is at right. Photo contributed
