Best to Never Place

Recommended Posts

A wide variety of kids could be considered here. I'd give a nod to Austin Bethel. Four-time qualifier and was ranked fourth. One of J. Lee's four losses and B. Lee's only loss.

In the early 2000 Madison had a middle weight named Michael Miller that was a 4 time qualifier, but never made it past Friday.

 

Around the same time Bloomington North had a HWT Joey Author who was a Fargo Champ I believe and placed at Fargo another time, but never placed at state.

Blake Denton should be up there. 3x SQ; won semi state as a junior but got upset in the last 10 seconds on Friday, and was injured during the tournament his senior year and lost at semi state.

Very tough Blake was very exciting to watch

Here is one that most may not know.  Antwaun Neal from Lawrence North in 1996.  He never made it to state, however he beat TJ Hays from Bellmont (who won state and i think a 2xer) pretty easily.  He also majored, tech'd, or pinned several place winner that year.  In his career, he had close matches with David Maldonado, James Leavell, and several other Indiana greats.
