Willmar wrestling coach Beyer decides to step down after 26 seasons


Tom Beyer thought about stepping down from his post as head wrestling coach at Willmar High School for several years.

"What kept me going was a great group of kids, this year's seniors," said Beyer the other day. "I really enjoyed being with these kids. It was a good group to leave with."
