Dake competed for the wrestling team at Cornell University. Between 2010 and 2013, he became only the third wrestler to win four NCAA Division I titles. Among four-time champions, however, he is the only one to win each title at a different weight class, and the only one to forgo a year of not officially competing.
Dake won the United States World Team Trials in 2018 at 79kg and will represent the United States in the World Championships in Budapest.
Dake was the runner-up at the United States World Team Trials in 2013, 2015, and 2017. He was also the runner-up at the United States Olympic Team Trials in 2016. In 2018, Dake earned a silver medal at the Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix, a major wrestling tournament held annually in Siberia.
