    RIP Jim Beeson

    RIP Jim. He was such a great mentor to so many young officials, he wasn't about letting you know how much more he knew but about helping you get better. When I first started officiating, I would watch him every chance I could, the way he communicated with wrestlers and coaches, his position on the mat, anything I could pick up to make me better. He was one of the best. Will be missed, but his imprint will live on through many, many officials throughout Indiana.
  7. I have the same question. I have 2 wrestlers that qualified from the north qualifier and 1 that qualified from being a non placing state qualifier. Is there anything we need to do to register for this Saturday? It is not on the flyer and don't know where else to look for info.

    Wow - Fattore pinned himself!

    The picture posted on this thread shows it well. If you all really knew the pinning area (it is not the shoulder blades!!), he was definitely pinned. Take a look at the rule book and you will see the pinning area is more than half way down the back. When I give coaches/official's clinics, this is the one most are surprised to learn.

    Willis Might have Surgery

    Duck, did you even wrestle? Your comments on this site make me wonder. If you did, did you put in the time to be any good? Did you make it out of the sectional? When you put in the extra work to be as good as Willis is, it is nearly impossible to not give it your best shot at the title, 2 years left or not. You were not on the mat to hear the conversation between the trainers, the coaches, the officials, and the wrestler. Maybe the trainer suggested he not wrestle, see how it feels in an hour and re evaluate. That would make sense wouldn't it? In high school, my sophomore year I separated my shoulder, wrestled anyway (5th), junior year broken wrist, (runner up), had surgery 3 days later, senior yr. I snapped a tendon in my ankle in the semi state finals (ranked #1 at the time), tried to wrestle anyway. It may not be the smartest thing, but when you give everything you have to get there and you are that close to your dream, you can't just walk away. Willis should not be boo'd, he obvioulsy worked way to hard to ever deserve that. I saw Willis several times over the course of the year, he gets my respect! You say he took a free ride to the finals? He won just as many matches to get there as everyone else!

    Janney/Travis Match

    It is dificult to get consistancy with judgement calls. It's also different if you are in the stands or on the mat (not knocking fans knowledge, it just is a different angle). Most officials will call the line tighter if there is no action (which the N.F. added this option to officials in the rule book this year), but if there is a scoring opportunity they will let it go a little longer. Give the more aggressive wrestler a chance. High school mats are not big enough to call it like college. The fleeing call with the HWT match was obvious (in my opinion). The Merr. wrestler's first turn to the line was not fleeing but a natural defense to the single, but when the Ytown wrestler pulled him back in and the Merr. wrestler turned again, he had other options and did not choose any of them. That is fleeing. Randal Hayes Official
