  1. Rest In Peace Tim Ayersman

    Kyle, Words cannot begin to explain how sorry I am for your loss. I remember almost every interaction I had with your father, & 'passionate' about the sport does not do him justice - he lived for the sport & watching you compete. On behalf of Roncalli High School & the Rebel Wrestling Foundation, we are sincerely sorry for your loss. We will continue to keep you & your family in our thoughts & prayers. Riley McClurg
  2. INDIANA WRESTLING, PLEASE DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS OPPORTUNITY! Jordan Blanton is known coast to coast. The Illini of the University of Illinois and the Monarchs of Old Dominion University still bring Mr. Blanton in monthly to train with their top-level wrestlers in the offseason. I do not mean to name drop, but Blanton has trained along side former UFC World Champions Jon "Bones" Jones and Holly Holm at JacksonWink MMA, helping them sharpen their wrestling skills for their upcoming battles in the octagon. The man's accolades speak volumes; losing one high school match, which came in the state finals in 2007 (L to Mike Benefiel), 3x NCAA All-American, former member of the notorious NYAC, and is currently Israel Martinez's right-hand man. I have learned from the man firsthand, and his technique is second to none! High schoolers who are looking for a competitive room to prep for ISWA Freestyle State must attend! Jordan informed me today that he is working on bringing 3-4 IzzyStyle club studs with him as well. I may be biased, but opportunities like this one do not come very often, especially for $40! Hope to see some of the state's best in attendance. Spots are very limited!
  3. Proposals to the IHSAA

    Why is the IHSAA against elite Indiana teams traveling out of state to the best tournaments (Beast of the East, Powerade, Cheesehead, Iron Man, ect.)? Maybe Y2 or Danny can provide further information, but it seems like they are just holding the state back. I know for a fact that the Perry Meridian team of 2013 was invited to one or more out of the state tournaments (outside of the travel restrictions) and the directors were contact with Coach Tonte, but he had to turn down the offers due to the sanctions of the IHSAA.
  4. What's the seeding criteria? Just trying to wrap my mind around some of these seeds. There will be some awesome match ups, as always. Toughest county in the state.
  5. Joe Kieffer rings the bell

    Wow. Words cannot describe how happy I am for the Kieffer family and Joe. I knew this day would come, and I am so glad it has arrived. Joe Kieffer you are one of the toughest people I know -- a true champion and inspiration to us all. God Bless.
  6. Preseason Rankings coming in October

    Y2 --- Thank you so much for your kind gesture and donation. Words will never be able to explain the impact Coach Dave Thornton made on my life. Thank you again and God Bless.
  7. Thank You!

    I know this is a little late, but I was to thank the studs and the studs' parents for coming out to the Granby School of Wrestling Clinic that was put on at Perry Meridian. We had an awesome turnout with around 70 wrestlers, and the room was packed from wall to wall! There is not one thing more exciting than seeing an Indiana wrestling room packed full of kids that want to get better and raise their wrestling IQ! Not very often do you get two world class coaches to fly halfway across the country to help our Indiana kids get better, and I was happy to see numerous kids take advantage of the opportunity! Coach Steve Martin, Coach Kyle Hutter, and myself were very impressed with the kids' attentiveness and will to get better. Little things like the clinic this past weekend are what make me proud to say I hail from Indiana. I hope we can make this an annual event because there is not a single thing better than giving back to sport and the state that helped mold me into who I am today! Thanks again to Coach Jim Tonte and the rest of the Perry Meridian family for being outstanding hosts as usual.
