Brad Traviolia, Wawasee. Big Ten Champ, NCAA Runner-up for Northwestern

 

I agree Brad or Mark Whitehead from Warsaw who was NCAA runner-up at 190 lbs in 1989.  Both were 3 sport guys. 

Whitehead was one of the best athletes I've ever been around.  Guy could play football, wrestle, and could probably run 

a sub 5:00 mile for a guy who was linebacker size...wrestled high school part time until he went to Northwestern.

Gotta be Lee, I don't really think this question could have any other answer.

I guess a d1 championship isn't enough when your name is lee and haven't yet wrestled a collegiate match for your team

Eric Keith

Eric was(might still be) a beast. The most technical wrestler I had ever wrestled. He had some Friday night struggles while beating top ranked guys every year and won w loaded 140 his senior year. All 4 semi finalist were unbeaten.

Matt Wills '91 HVY state champ.  Don't know what he did previous years, but he pinned Frank Hammond ('92 state champ) in the finals in about a minute.  Tossed him and then cradled him if I remember right.  I think he also won senior nationals in '91.

My updated top 3: I know, I know,  a lot of dudes from my generation. I'm sure I am forgetting some old timers who were solid as well.

 

1) Nick Lee

2) Jared Brooks

3) Devon Jackson

 

Honorable Mention: Taylor March, Garrett Pepple, and Drew Hildebrandt (spelling?)

I almost feel like the fact that Nick only wrestled 3 seasons somewhat disqualifies him....though a 145 Finals matchup with Brayton Lee this year would have been, and I hate this word, epic.

In a way, he did only wrestle his freshman and sophomore years.  Last year he was 3-0 going into Sectionals with his only 3 matches at Team State.  The State Tournament brought his final record to 19-1.
