  1. 100% agree regarding all 3 wrestlers you mentioned. A couple others that stuck out to me were Calhoun given his success at NHSCA.....and of course Brewer with the strong performance at Flo Nats. Viduya is probably 1 strong showing at Fargo away as well.
  2. Congratulations young men! I fully anticipate a few other Indiana studs who are undoubtedly on the cusp, if not arguably excluded from the list......to join these worthy gentlemen in due time.
  3. 3 Indiana hammers find themselves in the Flo Class of 2019 & 2020 “Big Board” National Rankings. These rankings consist of every wrestler within that specific graduation class at every weight. Eli Pokorney- 59th among all incoming seniors and currently 8th in class of 2019 heavyweights. Manzona Bryant- 37th among all incoming juniors and currently 2nd in the class of 2020 138lb’ers Silas Allred- 34th among all incoming juniors and currently 5th in the class of 2020 195lb’ers. Congratulations gentlemen! Time to climb!

    Most Indiana Triple Crowns?

    Silas won back 2 back Trips and would have likely coasted through Cadet again this year (no disrespect to other Cadet 195’s). The gameplan was to wrestle Junior 195 for better matches and preparation for a heftier Triple Crown of the National variety. But even with the USAW National Folkstyle Stop Sign on the mantle.......I figured I’d break the bad news. Silas didn’t compete over the weekend due to a slight tear in his meniscus. Surgery is needed and he’ll be out 6-8 weeks post-op. That unfortunately is going to make the OTC Training Camp and Fargo not possible for him. Discouraging......yes, very. But.....thankfully just a bump in the road. Could’ve been much worse. Prayers for a quick recovery is genuinely appreciated. In the meantime......he’ll be getting healthy, hitting the iron pile hard on his upper body......and mentally beginning to set his sights on IHPO and Super 32. Congratulations to all the Champs this weekend. Keep the momentum rolling fellas and go pound some outta towners at Cadet/Junior Duals and especially Fargo!!! The Allred’s will be with you in Spirit!

    Indiana Gold finishes runner-up to a very talented Illinois Outsiders squad. Great effort by these young men and coaches. Undefeated wrestlers going 7-0 for Team IN Gold included...... 120-Watts 145-Slivka 182-Allred 285-Pokorney Multiple other 1 or 2 loss records on the Gold squad, with W’s against legit opponents. Blue Team and the Indiana Renegade Teams also had some outstanding individual performances as well. Great effort collectively by these Indiana student-athletes.

    I respect your opinion. But I think these young men at 170-220 are well prepared. Especially 182 & 220. 182-State 5th, 2018 USAW Folkstyle Cadet National Champ, 6-1 at this same tourney last year. 220-State 5th, 2018 USAW Folkstyle Nationals Junior 4th. 170 & 195 both very capable young men. Should be an enjoyable, very competitive weekend.

    Indiana Gold is extremely solid from light to heavy. They potentially have the talent and horsepower to win it this year.

    Physical maturity was an overwhelming factor. Jesse also attempted an ill-advised throw early in the match that he seemed to never fully recover from psychologically. But I can guarantee you this......Knowing Hector and Jesse as I do, they are probably in the weight room today and counting down the days until Jess can get some redemption.

    Yeah......Allred & Drousias won soundly. The Deters match was easily the best Cadet final. They did everything possible to make him earn it! Questionable stall call, didn’t award a borderline takedown......then he wins in UTB on a stall call! The kid kept legs locked as Deters easily got to his feet off bottom twice. Desperation. I was not only impressed with Deters skill set.....but his mental toughness and gas tank to grind out that W and become a National Champ was a privilege to watch.
  13. Mendez (Cadet 120) and Allred (Cadet 195) undefeated and into the semi-finals tomorrow morning. Penola (Junior 195) guaranteed placement and still wrestling.

    Calhoun undefeated and into the semi’s in the sophomore 160 division. Great kid. Outstanding job young man! Get it done!

    Iswa depth and thoughts

    Agreed. Especially Junior 160. Calhoun lost an absolute war to eventual champ Slivka. And Jacob Laplace wrestled like a man on a mission. Knocked off Elliot Rogers in the quarters, Graves in the semi’s and was narrowly defeated by Slivka in the final 1-0. It was obvious he was there to prove a point after falling short of his goals a few weeks ago. Very impressive weight class and showing from all these hammers. Other notable results I personally found interest in........ -Bailey vs Casebolt was a great semifinal match. Lowery defeated Bailey in the J 120 finale. -Brewer looked solid and won J 182 soundly. -Irrick wrestled real well and won J 195. -Cornwell was relatively unchallenged from what ai seen at J 220. -Allred repeated as Cadet Champ (182). And Mendez didn’t disappoint (126). Plenty of other great matches and performances. These were just a few that sparked my interest and stood out to me personally. Always a long weekend.....but also always very enjoyable. Davison did a solid job running the show in his first major event as president.
