Jim Short
Jim Short, the patriarch of Minnesota's first family of high school wrestling, died Saturday at his home in Inver Grove Heights after a two-year struggle with cancer. He was 67.
Short not only built Simley High School into a perennial Minnesota wrestling power but also volunteered time and energy to development of the Minnesota USA wrestling program.
"No one can match what he has done in terms of the development of wrestling in this state," said his son Will, who also serves as the activities director at Simley and its head wrestling coach. "That is why he is so respected. That is why he is a legend. That is his legacy."

Here are my top ten reasons why kids should wrestle.
