Thanks for putting that list together SIG.........do you have grades, projected weights, and what High Schools, or communities they live in. These boys are definitely the FUTURE of Indiana wrestling.

Top 25 Indiana M.S Leader Board would be great. You might be one of the few knowledgeable enough for that age group to put this together.

It would be something for the young kids to shoot for as they come up through the ranks.

That said, I am really proud of the overall rise of Indiana Wrestling. Thanks to everyone helping the cause.

Weights would be difficult because there doesn't seem to be a uniform weight class listing for middle school in Indiana. It seems to be a regional decision or a school-by-school decision. And with open enrollment, projected high school may be a tough one too. Especially with the amount of private schools around the bigger cities.

Middle School State weights could be used. High school is never certain but could use current district. Subject to transfer or Catholic League School.

I think some should create a top 25 M.S leader board at the end of each month

Like to see the list after state. I bet will be some changes with the rankings

I modified my list to top 25.  It was pretty hard to narrow it down to 25 wrestlers.  I have seen many of these wrestlers at national tournaments and duals which is why some of them were ranked higher then kids that wrestle mainly in state.  I also didn't rank any 6th graders, but I am sure that will change after middle school state.  Inbox me if I missed someone, I'll adjust my rankings every month.

Hardcastle will definitely be in the mix. Speaking of 95, did Alstott move? I was putting him in the top 25, but his track profile says he lives in Wisconsin. I left him out because of it. Last I knew he was in the Indy area.

Sig, I'm pretty sure Alstott is still a Floyd Central kid, probably their 106 next year. Comes up to RC every Tuesday; last I saw him was just after the new year and he was still driving up from Louisville.

I actually just looked him up today after I saw he beat Brody.  He is a first year schoolboy and he didn't wrestle in middle school state last year, so I am assuming he is a 6th grader.  Hopefully he signs up for middle school state so I can see him wrestle.

We had a great time at Mooresville (PHMS) 16 School MS Tourney. Would love to see a few more of those to shake the kids out before State. By the way not only was a very well run MS tourney, but a fantastic hospitality room too!
