Competitors Hall of Fame: Scott Stara

Hall of Fame – 2003
David City

Scott is a man of many talents. He has been a wrestling official the last 11 years but is probably better known for his outstanding abilities as a 3x State Champ and moving in that direction, setting many, many records along the way. Scott’s high school wrestling career spand the years of 1989-1992. He qualified for state all 4 years and took home 3 gold medals which he counts as his biggest thrill. As quoted by Don Strecker of the Columbus Telegram, Scott “was one of the most dominant wrestlers in state history, winning the Class C 275 lb. state championship in ’90, ’91,’92.” Finishing 2nd his freshman year at state he set the record of 33 pins in one season his junior year. His season record stood at 36-0. He also set an all-class state record of 41 consecutive pins during the ’90-’92 seasons, now tied by David Miller of Kearney. Scott has also held the record of 13 state tournament pins which is now tied with Miller, Duaine Martin of Omaha North (Hall ’97), and Jason Dethlefs of Bennington (Hall ’98) . He also held the Class C record for the most career pins with 103 until it was broken by Rick Hasenpflug of Creighton. So, as you can see, Scott has been a trend setter and a leader when it comes to setting records in wrestling . In ’92 he received the National Pins Record which was 4th in the nation at that time. Scott is being introduced by his friend and coach, Gaylen Kamrath, Hall ’99.
