Wally Pesch Wall of Famers announced
Wally Pesch is no longer living — but his memory lives on and Sunday his son J.D. Pesch had the honor of naming four new members to the highest wrestling honor at Minneota — The Wally Pesch Wall of Fame.
Pesch called it an, “Inspirational Support,” given to the program, which he labeled, “The top program in the state.” He said the four new “Wall of Famers” used the drive and determination to make the program better.
The new members include Bruce Laleman; Josh VanOverbeke; Dennis Stoks and Rick Callens.
VanOverbeke, a three-time state entrant, was a state champion.
Rick Callens was the first two-time state entrant and one of the first four entrants into the state in the first 10 years. Laleman took third and was runner-up at the state and has been a long-time coach of young wrestlers and a Minneota Booster Club member and supporter.
Stoks wrestled in 1977 and went to state and also was one of the first of our early state entrants. He was runner-up.
