Dalton started wrestling in the seventh grade when his twin brother did – because a wrestling coach offered free pizza to sign up. Within a month, Dean put Dalton in a cradle, and Dalton decided to learn some moves, too. He fell in love with the sport, wrestling through high school and college. At Northern Michigan University he wrestled Greco-Roman and traveled the world. Over his career he has amassed honors including two-time Junior World Team member, two-time Austrian Open Champion, two-time University National Champion, and two-time U23 World Team member. He now has the Olympics as his end goal…but still finds himself wrestling his brother over their mom’s last pierogi when he gets back home.
