Argos Ink Two Bison Wrestlers

Posted: Updated:

GREAT FALLS, Mont. – University of Great Falls wrestling coach Caleb Schaeffer has announced the signing of Great Falls (Mont.) High wrestlers Randy Keesler and Casey Dobson.

“Randy and Casey are exactly the type of student-athlete we are trying to have wrestle for our program,” Schaeffer said. “They both are amazing young men with high character, great grades and are exception athletes.”

Keesler and Dobson join classmate and teammate Jarren Komac, who signed with UGF in August. All three are seniors at GFH, which is chasing its third-consecutive Class AA team state title this winter.

“They both where being recruited by numerous Division I programs across the country and decided staying local was the best fit for them,” Schaeffer said. “I think that says a lot about our program and what direction we are heading as we strive to be the best academically and athletically in the nation. These individuals will be the start of one of the best recruiting classes I have ever had.”

Keesler, the son of Randy and Anna, is a two-time state runner-up for the Bison. Keesler claimed the individual title at last December's C.M. Russell High Holiday Classic in Great Falls, and also captured the Jug Beck Rocky Mountain Classic title in Missoula. He boasts a prep record of 91-27 with 38 pins.

He also won the world title at the Reno World Tournament and was named the meet's outstanding wrestler this summer while representing North Montana Wrestling Club.

“It was close to home and I really liked the class sizes,” Keesler said. “It is a good education and I want my family to be able to watch me.”

Dobson, the son of Bryan and Jill, won the 132-pound state title at the state tournament in February. He was also a two-time state runner-up in 2012 and 2013. Dobson has won the Jug Beck title twice, and was runner-up at the Reno World Tournament this summer. His career record is 108-11 with 58 pins.

“I like Great Falls and I like UGF,” Dobson said. “The school is good and I think the NAIA is good fit for me.”

UGF is coming off a runner-up finish at the NAIA tournament last season.
