Kole Hansen is the son of Julie and Randy Hansen. He has one older brother, Kody.  “My family has supported me through everything I have done,” Hansen said. In his free time, he often goes cruising with fellow senior Jake Redler.

In the future, Hansen plans on going to college and majoring in business. He said, “I chose business because that is the field I can see myself enjoying every day.” When Hansen was younger, he said he wanted to be an architect but has no idea why.

His biggest moment in high school was getting an A on his math test. “I was thinking ‘how did I get an A on this test?’ It pushes me to work hard in the classroom and do my absolute best,” Hansen said.

In first grade, Hansen began wrestling and he has stayed out for the sport ever since. Something he is most proud of is “placing at State for wrestling.” He said, “I have been to State every year. My freshman year I was nervous to go to State and it shows in my results. I went 0-2 freshman year. Then sophomore year I was more confident and I went 4-2 and got fifth. Junior year I wasn’t nervous either. As a team, we got to wrestle at State Duals and that was very cool. Then I also got to wrestle as an individual at State the following days.“

Hansen said his coaches have had the biggest impact on his life because “they push me as far as I can go every day.” He also said that wrestling has made him a “boss.” Hansen’s most memorable match was his first round match at districts his junior year. “It was against a kid that had beaten me twice before that match. I pinned him and the crowd erupted with screaming,” Hansen said.
