    Coach McCormick

    Thank You Louis Rosbottom

    It is my understanding that Keith Davison is the new ISWA chairman. I first want to congratulate Keith on his new position and wish him the best of luck. I would like to thank Louis Rosbottom for everything he, and his wife Sharon, have done for the ISWA over the years. Their dedication and devotion to Indiana wrestling is immeasurable. I had the privilege of sitting on the ISWA board of directors for roughly 8 years (a number of years ago) with the Rosbottom's. When you start looking at the ISWA's annual budget meeting, services, programs, the ISWA office, trips, coaches, tournament management, etc, etc, etc, the ISWA is a HUGE undertaking and the Rosbottom's have been a positive influence and driving force behind all of these operations for many years. Thank you Louis for your servant leadership style of management. Indiana wrestling wouldn't be where it is today without everything you and Sharon have done with the ISWA. Regards, Trent McCormick Yorktown Wrestling

    ISWA Chairman Vote Keith Davison

    It’s sensible that people who only know me as a coach might think that I might be biting off more than I could chew with the ISWA Chairman role. I’ve also picked up vibes that some of the existing board members are bothered that my supporters and I believe that I could come in with no ISWA board experience and be an effective leader. Please know that I have a lot of respect and appreciation for our existing board for the countless and often thankless hours of work that they continue to put into the organization to help keep it going. On the other hand know that I have extensive volunteer leadership experience and would allocate the time that’s needed to get acclimated to the role and its responsibilities as well as assess what we do and how we do it before trying to prioritize what we should focus our efforts on improving. I’m not aiming to or promising that I’d fix “all of the problems.” I am not concerned about commitment significant amounts of my time to our cause. I have served the board as a coach of national teams for the past 6 years and have been generous with my time preparing for and traveling to these tournaments. My cumulative time that I’ve committed to these exceeds three months. I am currently president of our wrestling club and plan to reduce my involvement on that front to offset the added responsibilities of ISWA chair. From my vantage point it seems we have many capable board members in place and I wouldn’t intend to take effective people and processes and change them. However I do expect that feathers will be ruffled as we re-focus and make changes to our board as we move to being more wrestling centric as we work to be national wrestling power. Should I be voted in I will actively solicit and welcome thoughts and suggestions as to how we can improve as an organization.

    Rest In Peace Tim Ayersman

    As some of you may already know my father Tim Ayersman passed away Sunday afternoon. My father was the biggest supporter of me, Lake Central, Purdue, and now Brownsburg. He loved Indiana wrestling and everything that went with it. Vistation will be tomorrow (Wednesday the 13th) from 3-8 at Kish Funeral Home in Munster, Indiana. If everyone could send a few prayers towards my family we would greatly appreciate it. He loved getting on Indianamat just to see what was going on after I graduated from high school. Lastly, contrary to to popular belief, my father was not "Buttdrag" as some of you thought. Kyle Ayersman

    220- Kyle Cornwell, I'll take him as my #1 in NC Semi State if Mason Parris doesn't make that cut. Cornwell has had a great summer, got to watch him in Texas . Definitely going to keep a eye out for him this year.

    Tough loss 1-1 on criteria. Neither wrestler scored any points as both points were passivity shot clock points. Two trips to the world championships and two medals, with one more year of cadet eligibility for Alara Boyd.

    Men's Freestyle World Championships

    Great back and forth battle. Could not have asked for a better final match to decide everything. Snyder gets match winning TD with 30sec left to secure the World Title. He is now in the argument for the top P4P wrestler in the world. Our first World Team Title since 1995. And with the recently announced new world weight classes starting soon we maybe set up for a run of team titles over the next couple years.

    Thank You Louis Rosbottom

    And in spite of all the responsibilities, time commitment and doubtless frustration at dealing with coaches, wrestlers and parents who all want their way NOW, I can't remember a time when Louis didn't greet me with a warm smile and a handshake. Great guy, great family. Thanks, indeed for all you have done! Dave Cloud

    Middle schoolers who could place

    I agree with you completely, and also thank you for your time & effort you give to these kids. On this whole topic of Jr high kids wrestling in high school I believe it is fine , if a younger kid is good enough to complete at that level, why would we won't to restrict that? Do we not continually seek the best competition we can, to try and make our wrestlers better? Some restrictions that we put in place will only restrict our progress in the long run. My son Bryer wrestled for you at the heartland duals in Iowa earlier this year. He's a freshman this season & has been working his tail off . He wrestled IHPO this weekend at 129 & faced the #2 seed in the 2nd round ( Hassan Johnson ) last years IHPO Champion. I honestly didn’t think he had a chance, but he surprised me again with his throw caution to the wind and go for broke style of wrestling that seems to wear people down & pulled out a big upset. Bryer did not place but he did win some big matches against some really good competition in a 64 man bracket. Again thank you for your time and the compliments you gave my son before, it means alot to these young men.

    Middle schoolers who could place

    I coached the middle school national team at folkstyle national duals the last handful of years (including the team that took 3rd this year). With this said, very few middle schoolers and incoming freshmen have been able to place in the top 4 at the ihpo. Saw some really good kids come up short yesterday. But... I assure you that a handful of freshmen will place at state this year. The growth of these studs from November til February is typically amazing to see. With that said... I will say it again... Jesse is born ready. Look forward to seeing him being our next 4 timer (unless he goes to Blair or something like that).

    I know that Marion always brings a scrappy squad to the mat, great athletes that aren't afraid to put it all on the line. Numbers are always good and the Giants always have individuals that have success. I also know that kids like you can always make a difference with the program. I see you working hard and putting time into the offseason, this can be a great influence for the young wrestlers in the program. People from the community will notice your hard work and success. If you follow that up with good grades and being a good person, you can help make a huge impact on that program. Keep it up, see you soon!

    Middle schoolers who could place

    I just tweeted this, four middle school wrestlers have made the finals 3 champs all at 109, Brandon James at the 1st IHPO, Nick Lee at the 2nd, and Jesse Mendez this year. Also Mason Manville made the finals at 155lbs as an 8th grader losing by 1 point to an Illinois state champ. That's some very good company.

    Mendez could win state at 106-113 as an 7th grader and 113-132 as an 8th grader. He just beat two Indiana state place winners and one Kentucky state place winner yesterday as a 7th grader We know Nick Lee won as a 7th grader. Who did he beat in his path? One big name I remember is Hayden lee...who else?

    ISWA Chairman Vote Keith Davison

    Listened off and on while feeding my lil guy. Good answers and ideas to help create a better connection from wrestler, coaches and board members(club and ISWA itself). Sounds like he has some pretty good background with 501's and if he can help bring in good fundraisers as well, that'd be a huge bonus. Some of the cost for the trips have hindered good wrestlers from attending.

    No one thinks you would be punking out, sometimes things just don't work out but with that said you should research all options to fund raise and or ride share if its something you want to do as there are people out there that are always willing to help out. Good Luck to you this season and like Grappleapple said this thread has made the board interesting at least !!!!
