  1. Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    If the concern of this post is simply scholarships, then how about having your son/daughter focus on studies? No injury there. If they are successful enough in a sport to warrant a scholarship; great! If not, no sweat. They will have already been building towards a more sustainable endeavor. As much as we love watching our children play sports, most of them will not be doing it later in life. If your child has already passed the threshold for an academic opportunity then adjust for your younger children to focus on academics.
  2. Wrestlers on the field

    Brigham Kleinhenz had an article called Tackling Machine in the Columbus Republic. Great kid and a 2X semi-state qualifier for North. http://www.therepublic.com/2017/10/12/tackling_machine/
  3. Who's #1 (B.Lee & J. Lee)

    220 and Hwt is probably hard to do right now because of football.
  4. cosgrove

    Crown Point acts like they are trying to win a state championship or something. Congrats!

  8. Heading North

    Some of you already know that my family is headed to Columbus, IN from Seymour. We have wanted to move to Columbus for several years but now is the time. Our children are enrolled in the Bartholomew County school system now and love it. While we are still living in Seymour, we hope to move very soon. One of the hardest things to leave behind is our Seymour wrestling family. The past five years has been an absolute joy for our family. Sharing and passing on the love for the sport of wrestling in Seymour has had an impact on myself and family that will last a lifetime. I want to thank coach Todd Weaver for giving me the opportunity to help grow the program and be a part of something special. Adam Wolka is the HS assistant coach/youth director now. He will do a great job of continuing the success of the Seymour youth program. I also wanted to thank all of the Seymour coaches/volunteers that have helped me the past 5 years: Joe Penegar, Greg Musser, Matt Martin, Darin Kriete, Bill Castetter, Matt Chandler, Chad Chambers, Tony Combs, Joey Shepherd, Ben Rorick, Nathan Canaday, Ron Zike, Chad Garner, Andy Wilson, and Matt Ruddick. Our next adventure takes us to Columbus North where I will be helping develop the youth program with Justin Cooper, Anthony Meister, Joe Martinez, Andrew Douglas, Ethan Ott, Zach Metz, and Mike Anderson. If you need to contact me about wrestling please email me at cndogswrestling@gmail.com.
  9. Chris Bono and Jon Reader @ Warren Central

    Thanks for hosting this camp. Our wrestlers had a great time. Thanks to the ISWA as well!
  10. State champions

    The Evansville semi-state is going to be very tough!
  11. B. Lee down to 6 schools.

    You are right. That is who I was thinking of but got his name mixed up. That is a tough room!
  12. B. Lee down to 6 schools.

    Garrett is there too, right? That is a pretty tough room.
  13. Grand River Rumble Open Weights

    He was picked up by Tenway.
  14. Grand River Rumble Open Weights

    Coach, I know of a possible 74 lber. He is a 5th grader from Floyd Central. Tough kid, hard to wrestle. He's really tall, fast and strong. What is the cost to be on the team and can I pass along your number? Thanks, Justin Ratliff 812-525-7304
  15. Juniior Duals (Greco - FreeStyle)

    I just meant that some kids seem to be focusing more on Folkstyle so it may be hard to put together our best team. I think with some creative thinking an all-star team is possible. You just have to make them an offer that is hard to turn down.
