Lucas Dobbins graduated from Lyons Junior/Senior High School in 1988. Lucas started his High School Varsity wrestling career as a 7th grader in 1982. That year, despite missing most of the season due to a broken arm, he placed second in the Sectionals. Lucas wrestled at many different weight classes during those years and after that first year he went on to win each year from 1983 to 1987 the Section V Sectional Title. On top of this accomplishment he won numerous other tournaments throughout New York State. Lucas also held the record for the most wins in the history of Lyons Varsity wrestling
After high school, Dobbins wrestled for both Monroe Community College and the Rochester Institute of Technology and had the opportunity to wrestle all over the United States. He was within one victory of becoming an All-American wrestler while attending college. In one memorable and improbable match, Dobbins nearly defeated a two time National Champion, Sammy Francis, losing by only a single point in the final seconds.
After college Lucas moved to Rochester and worked in the Financial and Insurance markets. He moved back to Lyons in 1995. Today Dobbins lives in Lyons, has two children, Noah and Alyssa, and is the Owner of Dobbins Painting & Contracting, Inc. which he founded in 1996.
