    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

    Congrats to Trizton Carson

    The 170 pound soon be Danville junior recieved one of the only 4 Black Hats given at J Robs 28 day intensive camp out of hundreds of wrestlers...He graduated with over a perfect score gaining 10 positive ratings during camp and ran his 15 miles in 2 hours and 6 minutes...very proud of this young man who is like a nephew to me and glad he represented Indiana so well during a challenging but life changing experience! Look for big things the next 2 years and beyond out of this fine young man! He's had a very productive off season winning Nuway and Indy nationals while wrestling on dual national teams and gaining valuable knowledge for the future.

    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.

    Darren Elkins this weekend

    It's not talked about here often on this discussion board as others, but Darren Elkins has had quite the UFC career. If you get a chance to watch Darren's last fight, you might be able to understand how tough of a guy Darren really is. I watched the fight from my sofa with my wife, and to be honest. I was hoping the ref would stop it because I can't see a situation where Darren would quit and I was worried for his safety........and 5 min later he knocks the guys out to get what some have called one of the best comebacks in the history of UFC. Darren has his biggest fight of his career this Saturday on Fox if you get a chance to watch a fellow Hoosier as Co-Main event for UFC Fight Night.

    Silas Allred with some positive press on Flo. 2 away from the podium. A foolish weight cut resulted in drastic underachieving at Freestyle. The days of 170lbs are over.

    Congratulations to Christian on his commitment to serve our country and attend the United States Military Academy at West Point! Not only has this kid put hours of diligence on the mat but has made leaps and bounds in the classroom. I'll never forget when a scrawny 106 pounder with an indifference to his GPA told me over the dinner table three years ago that he wanted to go to an Academy and wrestle. Knowing the rigors of that decision, I rolled my eyes but said "well let's go to work." Three years later, I stand corrected. Good things come to kids who work hard in the classroom. Congratulations to Christian and his family, and Go Army!

    Disney Duals

    I couldn't say enough good things about Team Balboa. Kids battled hard all duals vs some very tough teams, especially after all the other wrestling we did down here before the duals. Thanks to Social Circle GA, Manatee FL, and Brandon FL teams and coaches for allowing us to come workout and compete at their schools. Very coachable and hard working group. It was nice to see all the Indiana teams compete and do well. Hope everyone has a safe trip home.

    Thank You Louis Rosbottom

    Louis, it was my pleasure working with you. Whether discussing Team trips or setting up numerous ISWA events, you would not only lend an ear, you would lend a hand. I have nothing but the deepest respect for you and I considered it a privilege to serve under your leadership. Mike McCarthy III

    Flo's first 2017-18 Rankings

    Fargo, big pre-season events, and weight shifting will change things a decent amount, but here is their initial rankings http://www.flowrestling.org/ranking/2871-new-faces-new-rankings/2017-07-09/p4p Pound for Pound #9 Parris 106. #20 Moran 145 #2 Brayton Lee (behind Sasso of PA) 145 #16 McIntosh 152 #1 Joe Lee 195 #13 Davison 220 #1 Parris ( initially he was slotted at #2 behind Schultz of CO but was moved up in the revision) HWT #16 Pokorney These rankings could set up a Who's #1 clash between B. Lee and Sasso. It also could make meeting between Parris and Schultz unless Football gets in the way. Indiana is a little light on this list and with little Hoosier movement during the regular season (travel restrictions) hopefully we have some of our top guns participating in some of these spring and fall events.

    Past USAW Triple Crown Winners

    Not much of a dry spell. Jesse Mendez just became Indiana's 12th triple crown winner today competing in schoolboy division at 105 pounds. Side note, Jesse wrestled another Indiana kid(Zeke Seltzer in the freestyle finals). Must be the 2 qualifiers that got him over the hump.
