“I sincerely believe that of all the people I’ve been associated with, Bob Siddens has been the biggest factor in building my desire and attitude in wrestling. Just one big ‘thank you’ to him for helping me set my lifestyle as well.”
-Dan Gable, 1972 Olympic Champion, Coach of 15 NCAA Champion teams

-Jim Miller, NCAA Champion wrestler and coach

“West Waterloo High is so fortunate that Bob Siddens came … and stayed.”
