Florida Chapter

Official State Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame

Thank You John Hauser

Alum John Hauser(2013) donated memorabilia to our museum collection at the 2024 FHSAA State Championships. He decided it was time to relieve himself of some special items and make them available for public display. He was the Head Coach for Stetson University, a Division I wrestling team in Deland from, 1984 - 1986. The program has been discontinued. Among the items he included were Stetson Wrestling schedule posters, hand made by him and a large poster advertising a team reunion in 2017. John wrestled for the now extinct Florida Gator team. He compiled 3 personal scrapbooks completely documenting the last three seasons of Florida Gator Wrestling and now they are a historical addition to our museum collection. On behalf of museum curator, Pete Collins (2012) we thank John Hauser for his kind contribution. Receiving his donation on behalf of the Hall is alum Sam Agresti (2009)

The HOF traveling Museum of Florida Wrestling history is always on the look out for more items.

Our Mission: To honor the sport of wrestling by preserving its history, recognizing extraordinary individual achievements, and inspiring future generations
