Thank you to Jason, Chris, and the rest of the ISWA. The trip was a blast. The organization was excellent. Once again, all of the wrestlers made it to the Omaha area on time. All gear was handed out, and once again the Indiana teams were first on the scales. Our hotel was within walking distance to the arena. The coaches took the kids to weigh in while the parents were able to unwind and relax (much needed after long drives).

 

As far as my team (middle school gold). We had a ton of fun. All of the kids were very respectful and well behaved. All were great teammates and supported the other kids.  It was very evident during our last match of the day. One of our guys got crossed faced hard, and was accused of a bite. We gave up 6 for the match and lost 3 points for the penalty. Our boys rallied. While the Missouri team paid little attention and were playing on phones, our kids were laser focused and helped each other rally to bring home the bronze medal. That was just one of the reasons, that this team was so successful over the weekend.

 

A few things stuck out to me:

 

I believe that I team was led by a very more mature and focused Ben Dalton. This kid was the heart and soul of our team. That sweet mullet hardly never touched the mat.

 

The EMD kids were fun and were hammers. Fitts is a great wrestler and even a better kid. This kid is a great listener and will do whatever it takes for his team (future team captain). Ross and Boarman are strong as can be. These kids are high school ready. Freeman is just a great kid. Very smart wrestler who wins each position. Look to see all of these guys at the bank very soon. The EMD kids were our hammers. By all accounts they had fun at Bass Pro Shop too!

 

Logan Frazier is a kid that I have coached over the years. He was our pace setter, as we started at the lowest weight in every dual. He is also a fun kid.

 

Eli Anthony and Cole Solomey and a couple of younger guys that stepped in and did a great job. These are kids that should make the trip again next year.

 

Zeke Seltzer is a kid that I have seen around for years. He is typical coaches son. He has a great skill set and a solid tank. Look for big things from this future Cathedral stud.

 

Bryer Hall was by far our most exciting wrestler. He has a tank that was unmatched by anyone at this tournament. If he was up he punished kids. If he was down he punished kids. Watch for this kid to nearside cradle his way to the bank soon.

 

Griffin Ison asked more questions than all of the kids on our team combined. His dad and I have been friends since high school. Fun kid that took some lumps. Look for him to get stronger and do great this for the Brownburg team. He is in great hands.

 

Prior to this weekend, I had never saw Evan Bates wrestle. He is steady as can be. Keeps his cool and just handles his business. Since our 160 was injured, I asked him to watch the other team and tell me if he felt like he wanted to bump. Each time he told me what he was going to do and did it. Cool dude here.

 

Dylan Case bumped heads and had to call it a short tourney. He was doing great up until the injury. He did try to give it a go on day two, but the trainers shut him down. Tough kid.

 

Garrett Sandefur is a tough kid. He was winning a match in the semis and ended up getting caught. In the next match (for third place) he had a kid with man muscles. Garrett tossed the kid on his back and stuck him! He pretty much iced the dual for us. The Cavemen have a good one here.

 

Brayden Erb was another kid that I have never seen. He is a man child that is raw as can be. This guy just man handled kids. He is a kid that has a very high ceiling.

 

Reeve Muncie is big! This kid has a great frame, and is all business. Not sure that he has ever smiled. He is crazy intense. Carroll has a good one coming in (if that one coach don't mess it up).

 

Last but not least was our big guy... Nick Morgan. Nick is another raw big fellow. Nick took some lumps. As soon as this guy gets into a high school weight room, he could be scary.

 

Big props to our young coach Brendon Kelly. Most of you know that he was a state champ, and is currently wrestling at the University of Indianapolis. For a 21 year old dude, he had a lot of good things to share with the kids. He did a great job coaches matches. As a college kid, he could have worked his job this past weekend and made some much needed cash. Instead... he chose to came on this trip. Great to see a young guy giving back to our sport. Please support Coach Kelly and his future efforts.

 

All in all a great weekend. There were 5 pools and we were seed 2nd in our pool. To finish in third was a great accomplishment.

 

On a personal note I have coaches the ISWA teams to a 3rd place finish at the Kingsport Elementary duals, a 3rd place finish at the Heartland Elementary duals, and now a 3rd place finish at the Heartland Middle school duals. I have seen it.... we are right there!!! I think (with the help of academies) that we are gaining the depth we need to develop the talent to win a national title. I was at Hooters..... arrrrrr.... a local eating place during the tournament. I overheard a bunch of Iowa guys discussing how tough Indiana has become. As a state, our talent level is on the rise. I would like to see all of the politics take a back seat next year. I would love to go out there and bring home the gold next year. The future is bright folks!

Parents and coaches of the kids currently involved in the ISWA wrestling..................Mattyb is right.  We are right there and need to make that final push to put IN wrestling on the national map at these type of tournaments. 

 

Next year is already upon us and who out there does not want to be a part of the team that brings home the first Heartland Dual Elementary or Middle School National title ????

 

Some things are in the works to make some tweaks to the qualifications for the teams but in the end it will put IN in the best possible position to challenge for the titles and level the playing fields with the other states that are the perennial powerhouse's year in and year out.

 

Train hard all summer and next season please consider being part of the teams that head out to Council bluffs Iowa and bring home the first ever 1st place trophies for the state of IN.

Guys it was my first trip to Heartland Duals and I will rank this up there with other team trips I have went on.  Jmills did a great job of making sure everything went smoothly.  I was impressed with how our teams competed and stacked up to the best the other states had to offer.  Was a honor to corner for a lot of kids that I have no doubt will be wrestling on Saturday at State Finals in the future.  Also I had the unique oppurtunity to view this trip from the parent angle as well.  My son wrestled for two of the best youth coaches in the business (Ryan Parrish, Blake Harvey) and enjoyed every second of it.  #4thesnap   Our state has some of the best youth programs and coaches around and it makes coaching high school easier when the level of guys your getting is raised by the youth coaches throughout our state including Madison Youth Director TripleB himself.

 

As JMills knows we learned from this trip that no matter how hard you get hounded you fight and no matter what fence is in your way you find a way.
