It's hard to believe but another year has come and gone already. The FloFilms department is always striving to tell the best stories in wrestling and we continued that trend this year. Let's take a look back at the top 5 FloFilms from 2016:
In 2015 we told the comeback stories of Kyle Dake and Jake Herbert. This year it was Daniel Dennis. He's not your grandmother's Olympian. With a rough and rugged exterior and disregard for social norms, Iowa's Dan Dennis is one of the toughest S.O.B.'s on the planet.From a non-state champ to NCAA finalist and from living in a van in the California mountains to becoming America's most unlikely Olympian - watch Daniel's journey in FloWrestling newest documentary series: Wild Man.
Jordan Burroughs is 4x World and Olympic Champion. He's the best American freestyle wrestler since John Smith, and he is the first great wrestler of a new era. One with social media, more media, and more exposure than ever before. In My Name Is Jordan we get to see how Jordan Burroughs is approaching Legendary status while coming from a humble background.
After spending 12 years as an assistant at Iowa, J Robinson finally got his big break. Robinson was named the head coach at Minnesota in 1986, and since then has made the Gophers a national powerhouse. Robinson has led the Gophers to three national titles, helped develop 63 All-Americans, 14 individual national champions, and won six Big Ten team titles. In our newest FloFlims series, Minnesota: Keepers Of The Flame, we highlight how Robinson was able to make Minnesota a national powerhouse, and focus on the historic 2001 season. Not only did Robinson deliver Minnesota their first national title in wrestling, but he did so thanks to an astounding and record breaking performance of 10 All-Americans.
