Coaches Hall of Fame: Jack Ramey

Hall of Fame – 1988

Coach Ramey began his coaching career in Redfield, South Dakota in 1961. After three years there he went on to Kearney High School for another three years. In 1967 he journeyed to Lincoln East and accepted the head wrestling job at Kearney State College for the 1969-70 season. His high school record shows 82 wins, 29 losses and two ties. At college he gathered 142 wins, 51 losses, and six ties. His personal wrestling accomplishments boast a silver medal in the 1961 NAIA Nationals and All-American status. He was inducted into the NAIA Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame also this year. He has coached 21 All-Americans, 20 of whom were Nebraska high school wrestlers. His biggest thrill is attending the Nebraska State Wrestling Tournament and observing his former Kearney State wrestlers now coaching high school teams of their own.
