Childhood Bouts to Coaching Showdowns

The Unique Wrestling Journey of the Timmerman Brothers

By Brian Jerzak

From the outside, it was just another early January dual meet in Minnesota. It wasn’t even all that competitive, with one team destined for a twenty-win season and a top-four finish in a very competitive section and the other struggling through an under .500 season that would see them knocked out of their section in the quarterfinals. To the head coaches – it was much more. St. Peter and Tri-City United have faced off on the mat enough in the last half dozen years that it is no longer a novelty, but when brothers and head coaches Ryan and Shaun Timmerman stare across the mat from each other’s corner, it means a little bit more.

With a wrestling coach as a dad, both brothers grew up around the mat. In older brother Ryan’s case – on the mat.

“Ever since a young age, wrestling is just what I did,” Ryan said. “I didn’t go to daycare after school. I went to practice. I grew up in the (St. Peter) wrestling room. There are still parents of kids now that say, ‘I remember when you were running around the wrestling room when you were three or four years old. It has been an important part of my life.”
