Competitors Hall of Fame: Rudy Glur

Hall of Fame – 1990

Glur began wrestling in junior high and took to the sport like a duck to water. Rudy groomed a high school record to an impressive 79-2 which earned him three state titles for Columbus from 1975-1977 and earned him high school All-American honors. He garnered two state freestyle titles while in high school and earned the Junior Golden Gloves title in 1974 and a year later was the AAU Nebraska Boxing Champion. Glur attended Huron College in South Dakota after junior college and earned All-American status three times in the process. A bronze medal was earned in the junior college nationals in 1979, and NAIA Championship in 1980, and another bronze in NAIA in 1982. He was team captain in 1981 and 1982. Glur moved into the coaching ranks with a brief tenure as an assistant at Kearney State from 1982 to 1984 then coached at Boy’s Ranch Texas from 1984 to 1987 and the Maverick Boy’s Club from 1987 to 1989. Opposing coaches will be dismayed to learn Glur is now coaching at Oxford, Nebraska! Rudy marks earning his 1980 NAIA National Championship and securing second place in the nation as a team as his greatest thrills.
