Kimball High School wrestling coach Devon Forsten has taken a female athlete to the state tournament every year since he started the girls’ program in 2000. That’s 20 all-state female wrestlers in 20 years. But only one has won first place. That’s Destiny Miles. Miles, who graduated from Kimball High School this year, is the first wrestler of any gender in Dallas Independent School District history to win two state championships. Forsten had seen Miles run track at T.W. Browne Middle School, and when she got to Kimball, he noticed her horsing around with boys in the hallways. She made it to the state tournament all four years of her high school career. Miles grew up with six siblings in a household where money was scarce, and she says she even shoplifted groceries to keep herself and her siblings fed. Wrestling requires extreme discipline with diet and workouts, plus the mental toughness of a soldier, Forsten says. Miles won a wrestling scholarship to Schreiner University in Kerrville, where she plans to major in criminal justice. When she’s not training or going to school, she works at Family Dollar.
