Raised in North Dakota, Troy and Terry Steiner exemplify the values of the American Heartland. Driven to outwork the competition, the Steiner twins became known for their relentless pursuit of excellence and clean lifestyle. Five state titles later, the brothers were a natural fit for Gable’s Hawkeyes. From Bismarck to Iowa City, they brought their legendary work ethic and the results followed. The twins terrorized opponents as they led the charge for Gables’ Hawks during the golden era of Iowa dominance. Following a collegiate career featuring NCAA titles for both and seven All-American awards, the twins enjoyed successful careers on the senior level cementing their status as Hall of Fame competitors.
Today the brothers continue to lead the charge on the forefront of growing our great sport. Troy has been chosen to revitalize NCAA wrestling in the hot bed of California, as head coach of the storied Fresno State Bulldogs as they make their return to competition. Terry is our longest tenured coach on the USA wrestling staff, leading a strong women’s team that has developed into a perennial world power. Raised in Bismarck, North Dakota, for Troy and Terry Steiner it has always been…… A WAY OF LIFE.
