On April 25, 2015, at the Minnesota Chapter National Wrestling Hall of Fame Honors Banquet, Jon Rhodes was inducted into the hall of fame as a 2015 Lifetime Service Honoree. Jon began his 36 year coaching career in Perham, Minn., moving on to coach at Harmony High School from 1969-1992. He finished his professional career in Tokyo, Japan, teaching and coaching there from 1992-2006. Jon’s coaching career earned him a 249-99-8 record, including getting 104 individuals to tournament titles, as well as winning 20 conference titles, 11 of which were from Harmony. His teams captured 54 tournament team titles, including three Far-East championships. Jon also posted one undefeated regular season in Harmony and two undefeated teams in Tokyo.

Jon began the Harmony Holiday Tournament, which is now in it’s 42nd year and one of the oldest in the state. Jon’s influence also remains in the Far-East Wrestling Tournament format, as he introduced the Minnesota State Tournament Dual-Meet plan, which was adopted and is still utilized in the individual tournament and dual-meet tournament format in the Far-East Wrestling Championships.
