    Weight Classes, just for discussion

    Amen! This strikes a nerve with me. My freshman son is 85lbs soaking wet, but he's a pretty decent wrestler. He can compete with bigger kids, but giving up +20lbs is a stretch (particularly to the Cottey's, Dalton's, & Nelson's, etc). Competing on a level playing field was the whole reason that I encouraged him to wrestle. He wrestles year-round in the academies, and I can assure you there are a number of very good kids at or around his weight. Many parents just hold their kids back; who can blame them. We can't, in good conscience, do that, so one way or the other he's going to take his lumps. It is what it is. I understand the rationale, but given how hard he (and the other little guys) have worked; the idea of 110 as the lowest class gets me a bit frosty.
  2. For the love...the other rule is never listen to JMill. FYI, I believe Outlaws has practices at Huntington once or twice a week. Bryan Bailey is a good guy and takes dual teams all over God's creation. Kids from all ages and all over the state (in various clubs & academies) travel with Outlaws. He's a good guy to get to know.

    Top Middle School Wrestlers 2018/2019

    Love seeing Billerman & Syra make the list. Here are a few other little guys for your watch list: Preston Haines, Dillion Graham, Charlie LaRocca, & Tony Wood. Dickey is certainly deserving, but I 'believe' he is now a Freshman.

    Best Incoming class

    I don't know how many of them are going to be Freshman next year, but the Center Grove MS and youth program are loaded (and so is Brownsburg).

    Best Career

    Off the top of my head at Cobra over the past two years: CJ Red, C Brewer (a lot), A White, D Blubaugh, K Wagner, G Rooks & D Combest & of course the Brownsburg guys.

    Wrestling Academies

    Amen! I am at a loss when I hear a particular high school coach doesn't want his kids to wrestle at an academy. I am 'assuming' that is ego getting in the way of clear thinking, but perhaps that is an overgeneralization. However, Brownsburg & Avon are a excellent success test cases (and you can extend that to the Evansville & Region schools as well). A lot of the better kids are going 4-5 days a week year around. Maybe not so much with the little guys (under 10), but some them do as well.

    Middle School State System Glitch

    I don't have a solution, but I know 6 grader whose mom had a difficult time getting him registered. As I recall it was something to do with date of birth (too young), so it's not just your wrestler.

    Brayton Lee Article...

    THIS...any parent with young wrestler in the Cobra room has seen it.
  9. I agree with Maligned. I think the it was the right decision and partially worked. And, not a lot worked for Cathedral that night, nevertheless, a call or a mistake goes the other way and it's a different outcome. Two very good and closely matched teams...it was fun.

    Depth of 126

    I recall those guys, but I didn't recall the bracket. That's a good one, particularly since none of the champs made the finals. What struck me today was the ranking of Mills & Mejia at 7 & 8. That's not a comment on the ranking, but rather how loaded and deep that class is.

    Depth of 126

    Oh yeah, were Brooks & Phillips in that one or was that the year after?

    Depth of 126

    So for folks that have been around awhile, how does the depth of 126 compare to other weight classes over the years? Just curious.

    I don't know about that, but I do know "who's buried in Grant's tomb."
