  1. 2017 Mr. Gorilla Award

    Wrestling 45 matches in a season without a defeat is an impressive feat. What about also adding in 38 pins including 27 in the first period? Let’s also add in only three matches going into the third period, with only ONE, yes one, match that went the full six minutes. When you add all that up you get this year’s Mr. Gorilla, Andrew Davison of Chesterton. Davison put together one of the most dominating seasons the state has ever seen this year. The future Michigan Wolverine already had a laundry list of accomplishments highlighted by national titles in folkstyle and Greco-roman before capturing his first state title this year. Davison’s career record was 121-4 with 79 career falls. On top of his accolades on the mat Davison has also been academic all-state based on stellar work in the classroom.

  3. 2015 IndianaMat Awards

    1A Coach of the Year Tony Currie- Adams Central In his first year at the helm of the Flying Jets Currie continued the storied tradition of the program. The list of accolades in his first season will set a high standard for the years to come. In early January the Currie lead Jets captured the 1A Team State Duals title in dramatic fashion over Prairie Heights. They kept the ball rolling winning the tournament portion of the Allen County Athletic Conference. Adams Central was also the only 1A team to take more than one wrestler to state, which included 4th place finisher Kaine Luginbill. 2A Coach of the Year Trent McCormick- Yorktown The Yorktown contingent had an outstanding year once again, led by Coach Trent McCormick. The Tigers captured their third straight 2A Team State Duals title in dominating fashion. The won in the finals 45-18 and in total outscored their opponents 229-59. Along the state path they captured a sectional, regional, and semi-state titles. They also qualified eight wrestlers for state and finished 11th in the final standings. 3A Coach of the Year Brad Harper- Penn Adults often joke about the endless energy of kids…and Brad Harper. Harper is a high energy coach that is a master motivator. The architect of the Penn resurgence is the 3A Coach of the Year. With a banged up and patched up team at the 3A Team State Duals Harper’s squad was an eyelash and a tiebreaker from the finals. Then came a state run that was redemption for team state. Penn lost two very important wrestlers in the first round of state and came into the quarter-finals with one less wrestler than Cathedral. They managed to outpace the Irish as Harper’s squad brought home two individual titles along with a runner-up finish. This is Penn’s first wrestling state title in the school’s history along with the first individual titles since 1971. 1A Wrestler of the Year Sawyer Miller- South Adams After being in the semi-finals as a freshman and sophomore, Miller was knocked out of the state tournament at semi-state as a junior. That fueled the motivation to not quit until he was under the lights in his last go-round. He had an unblemished record until the finals where he dropped an overtime bout to Brock Hudkins. Miller wraps up his career as the most decorated Starfire in history with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place medals. His legacy will be hard to top, but he does has a younger brother just itching to break all his records. 2A Wrestler of the Year Brock Hudkins- Danville Luck hasn’t been a friend of Brock Hudkins during any of his three high school seasons. As a freshman he missed the first half of the season with an injury and came into the state tournament with a limited amount of matches. He ended up 5th in a very tough weight class. As a sophomore he came into state as a semi-state champion, weighed in, then became ill and couldn’t participate. His junior year was cruising along until a midseason weight room injury almost sidelined him for the season. Even with a mangled finger Hudkins captured a state title in one of the toughest weight classes in the state. He finished his junior campaign without a loss and will look to build upon it for his final year. 3A Wrestler of the Year Chad Red- New Palestine There are many superlatives that can be used to describe Chad Red. His career to this point is nearly spotless with his only blemishes coming when he attends national events. Along with his three state titles he has championships at the Super 32 and Fargo. He also has a 4th place finish at FloNationals along with leading Team Indiana to All-American finishes at the Cadet Duals. The icing on the cake is his #1 ranking in the country which has prompted visits from top college coaches to New Palestine. Mr. Gorilla Voting Results (1st Place Votes) Tommy Forte- 106(13) Tommy Cash- 90(9) Garrett Pepple- 74(1) Dylan Lydy- 28 Brandon James- 24 Tommy Forte- Mishawaka The experts often say to keep your resume to one page, but for Tommy Forte he will need a forest to print his resume off. One of only two seniors this year with four state medals(Brandon James the other), Forte has cemented a legacy of one of the greatest Cavemen ever. Two state titles to go with a runner-up and third place finish are just the tip of the iceberg. Nationally, Forte has placed at USAW Folkstyle Nationals twice and finished 4th at the Super 32. He also holds national rankings of #8 by Intermat and #15 by FloWrestling. He will be continuing his education and wrestling career at Buffalo with former coach Bryce Hasseman and the Bulls. This year he became only the second wrestler ever to capture four titles at the prestigious Al Smith Classic. He finished his career with an impressive 140 wins with only 5 losses to three different wrestlers(Jarred McKinley 2x, Cody LeCount 2x, and Anthony McHugh). With that he is the first of many Mr. Gorilla award recipients.

  8. IndianaMat.com has decided to sponsor an award honoring the state's top senior wrestler. Most of the other high school sports already are honoring their top seniors and we felt that 2015 would be the right time to present such an award for wrestling. IndianaMat will start things off by publishing a watch list of senior contenders for the award (i.e. Heisman watch) in early November. We will then pare this list down to approximately fifteen wrestlers after the team state duals and holiday tournaments and then further refine the list prior to sectionals. The criteria for selection will be left intentionally vague as we want a variety of opinions as to who the voters think is the best wrestler. Some general criteria that can be considered is listed here: 1. Must be a senior 2. Undefeated/fewest losses. A midseason loss would not disqualify a wrestler. 3. Domination. Number of pins, tech falls 4. Level of competition. 5. Body of work previous to senior year. State and national resume. 6. Character 7. Grades Any, or all of these may, or may not, be taken into consideration by the voters when making their selections. We have chosen 39 voters to make this selection because we value their knowledge and experience regarding Indiana high school wrestling.
