@ 126 I think mckinley would beat ayersman.
I'll take the kid with 3 state titles, a 193-2 career record, a 15-1 record in Indy, and a pretty decent gas tank. His only two loses came in close matches.
> State 2009 - As a freshman in State 103 Semi's, he lost in double overtime to Dusty Kief. (Kief beat McKinley 9-2 in round 1)
> Al-Smith 2010 - He lost to Beck (Mish) at Al-Smith. He came back to beat Beck at Semi-State and State Finals. (*Beck beat Todd and Campbell at State)
People seem to forget the level of competion he faced or the guys at his weight for four years. He is probably one of the few to own wins over
Brooks, Petrov, Campbell, McKinley, Harvey, etc. (Phillips may be the other), while also beating some 9 other eventual or current finalists.
With money on the line, Ayersman seems to handle the pressure decently, and has ok conditioning: http://www.ihigh.com/hoosierauthority/video_893317.html
1. I think Mr. McKinley is an exciting wrestler to watch, but when he does not aerial launch or pin, he has had some close matches. At State, he labored with Moody in quarters
being ridden hard and taken down in a tight 8-6 match, and was tight with Johnson in first round before creating space. He has gotten more well rounded, but there is no
doubt if you withstand the initial head attacks, Campbell, Phillips, and Ayersman have shown he can be beat.
2. I doubt Ayersman is dumb enough to walk into McKinley's headlock. In their only prior meeting, the 2010 112lb semifinals, Ayersman quickly took him down and
3. LeCount - After watching LeCount, I believe LeCount could actually be top dog in that room. The LeCount kid is the real deal, and word from some in the PM camp is that
Mr. LeCount does very well against Mr. McKinley. I would not be surprised if you told me Mr. McKinley rarely scores on Mr. LeCount.
