Dake-Taylor observations (long read) in College Wrestling Posted March 26, 2013 · Report reply Dake: I have known Kyle since he was in 8th grade and have seen him in many different arenas of the sport. He always has time for everyone and gives back. I'm glad to read this, because to me Dake comes across as an outstanding wrestler but a jerk in post-match interviews, calling out his (soundly defeated) opponents and complaining about the officiating when he'd just won 13-0. Most other wrestlers aren't that over the top, even right after winning. I'll assume it's just the thrill of victory, and maybe a little persona.
