Mike Eierman is awarded the Hometown Hero Award — along with a $25,000 check – on Tuesday at Eierman Elite wrestling club in Fulton. Eierman has been coaching wrestling for 25 years and was given the award, which is sponsored by the sports streaming website FloSports, for his positive impact on the wrestlers he instructs. Jaydin Eierman, who changed his last name from Clayton to Eierman in honor of his coach, nominated Mike for the award. Despite the festivities, Eierman began wrestling practice promptly after the ceremony.
