  2. Darren Elkins this weekend

    I respect your opinion but I would say that Fitch still has the edge. Elkins is a tough dude, I wrestled against him in high school and I have never seen anyone take punches like he did in that last fight. That being said, Fitch was undefeated in the UFC and a number 1 contender before losing a 5-round title fight to George St. Pierre by decision (who is arguably one of the greatest fighters of all time). I hope Elkins can get to that level and be the main card on a pay-per-view but he hasn't done it yet. Although, I will say Elkins is a much more exciting fighter to watch than Fitch. I will be rooting for him to pick up a big win this weekend.

  12. Wabash

    When I heard last year that Owen was going to Wabash, I thought it was a great fit. I had a feeling he would excel in their room. Congrats on the All-American finish. That is an unbelievable feat for a freshman.

  14. Spenser lee goes down in PA

    I also thought fleeing should have been called in the first. Great match - was really impressed with DeSanto's gas tank in the 3rd. Lee looked gas and tried to slow the match down (i.e. tying his shoes, fixing knee pad, walking slow back to the center of the match, etc.). I applaud Lee for wrestling through an injury and embracing the competition. I hope he recovers well and has a healthy 4 years for the Hawkeyes. Nothing against Drexel (DeSanto's college choice) but I feel that Lee has a better room for growth if it is a good fit. Regardless, it would be nice to see a rematch at full health. Would it be competitive or more like their matchup a year ago which ended 15-0 in favor of Lee?
  15. Semi-State Champions Scorecard

    If you include private schools (like St. Vincent's), you get a few more because of the Lutheran schools. However, if we are discussing public schools, the only middle school program for Fort Wayne Community Schools is Blackhawk. That program was only started because Mike Ester was passionate about the product he was helping produce at Snider. Say what you will about Ester, but wherever he goes, teams tend to win (Snider, Trine, Indiana Tech). Since his departure from Snider, the school and the conference have been on a decline. Personally, I don't think the SAC is going to invite Carroll and Homestead any time soon for wrestling. This year, Carroll would have placed wayyy out front with Homestead a distant second, followed by Dwenger in 3rd (based on tournament results i.e. Concordia Invite, New Haven Invite, Mooresville Holiday Classic, IHSAA Regional). As a head coach, I have learned that this sport takes a lot of time, energy and commitment. I know that most sports do but I think wrestling is unique because we have a smaller number of families, individuals and leaders to draw upon to help organize things. As a result, the few leaders in the area may get burned out and invest the minimum time necessary to run a successful PROGRAM but don't have the extra time and energy to help develop a COUNTY. Potential solution: The head coaches in the area form meaningful relationships, put aside our egos and use our resources collectively so that all wrestlers in the area can rise together. Believe me, I am just as much to blame as the next guy. I want Homestead to win championships so most of my time and energy is devoted there. However, I love this sport and how it helps develop young men and it would mean a lot to me to see Fort Wayne wrestling back on the map.
