A Few Interesting Connections Between Dan Knight (Clinton) and Brody Teske (Fort Dodge)

Dan Knight- Clinton, 1987, 4 time unbeaten state champ.

Brody Teske- Fort Dodge, 4X state champ in 2018.


Brody Teske and Dan Knight… what do they have in common or how are they connected? Well that’s easy! Both were 4 time state champs, Einstein!!!  Yes… both were 4 time state champs, but there are some additional parallels between the two…

  • To start, both were 4 timers.
  • Both were in class 3A.
  • Both started out at the lightest weight as Freshmen.
  • Both won their 4th titles at 3A-126 lbs.
  • Both pinned their opponents in the 1st period to win their 4th titles…

BUT, the coolest connection between these two can be found in this video at the 3:50 mark:

Danny Teske placed 4th. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that Brody’s dad?

Imagine that… while Dan Teske is standing on that podium with Dan Knight, who is receiving a standing ovation for winning his 4th, it probably didn’t occur to him that he would have a son to do the same thing in the same exact class at the same exact weight.  Fun stuff.
