Tucked away in the middle of corn fields just east of Beresford, lies a training center that's beginning to make a name for itself.
"It's great. There's nothing else to compare to it right now," Fraase said.
From wrestling facilities to dorms, office space and even a cafeteria, Legends of Gold National Training Center seems to have it all and its growing. With 7,200 square feet of mat space on the way, it's not something you would expect from a place off the beaten path. The center is the vision of former college coach Terry Pack. He set out to create a place for rural kids to get the best training possible and it's taken off.
"Right now we're the No. 1 ranked youth club in the United States. We've wrestled some of the biggest venues in the country. We've won the biggest tournaments in the country over the last three years. I was a college coach for 15 years. I've won a couple of national titles. I've also coached at the Olympic training center in Colorado Springs. All of that together, people found out that we were here and doing training full-time. It's caught on from there," Pack said.
While young grapplers in Beresford are reaping the benefits from a location standpoint, miles aren't stopping others from showing up in droves.
"I want to wrestle for the Olympics, the U.S. team, that'd be pretty fun," Fraase said.
Jonathan Fraase and his dad Jamie drive from North Dakota to Beresford on the weekends during the school year. It seems to be paying off as Jonathan has picked up multiple state and national championships.
"I've spent time in them dorms, my kids have. We almost live there all summer it seems like. It's our home away from home," Fraase said.
Taking it even further, Darren Galt moved his family to Beresford so his son could spend even more time at Legends of Gold. He's really looking forward to the new building set to open in October.
"You don't find that in colleges. It's something that's unique and it's something that we'd like to take advantage of and I hope other people do," Galt said.
