Holt, MI - In his 37 years of coaching Holt wrestling, Rocky Shaft created a tight, family-like atmosphere out of a demanding and intense sport. He has given more to the wrestling program than anyone would have expected in his 53 total years with the team as a wrestler, assistant coach and now coach.

So when the mid-Michigan community learned that his Type 2 diabetes was seriously jeopardizing  his health, they rallied together to raise money for a service dog that could save his life.
