  1. Past hour
  2. With D1 program Old Dominion shutting down it’s wrestling program. Will other programs follow suit ? They said in the press release they didn’t have the $ to support the program. They would save a million $ cutting it. I thought OD Wrestling had a great year. With the recruiting they had coming in was pretty good also . I think more programs will follow suit with smaller Football & Basketball program. With the Covid virus cutting into their $ to support other programs .
  3. Yesterday
  4. I’ll take it. Although seems more logical to go in chronological order.

  7. As a parent who has lurked here for the 4 years of my son's high school career, I just wanted to to say thanks to all the rankers and members of the community here. This has been a valuable resource that I have shared with others throughout the years and has helped in getting to know the competition and sometimes what to expect during the season. I wish other sports had the same kind of community that I have seen with Indiana high school wrestling.

  9. My Boy Bradley stays raking in the in state studs! He's really building something special that within next 3 years will be contending for National Team Titles along with more and more Sl Americans! He's a great coach and an even better person.. Congrats Ty you'll flourish under your new coaches @Marian!
  10. Dear Coach, and Indiana Wrestling Leaders: (email sent to all IHSWCA Coaches Membership, and ISWA Members in our Coaches Application pool) Hope your all staying safe!! I know your like me. You are at home, doing work you never did as you were always coaching, watching series you never would have watched, hopefully reading and working out more than you normally have had chances to do, and just wondering when the heck you will get to get on the mats again!! While I can't tell you exactly when that will happen. I can tell you what information I have, and what things we can be doing at home to better ourselves as coaches and wrestling leaders. I actually type this email while on a ZOOM meeting with USA Wrestling, and the latest date to target, and re-evaluate the state of the virus is May 10th as an aspirational date - not a hard date, but an aspiration. While I can not predict 30 or 45 days out, this is just an aspirational date, and things can change daily. As far as local clubs and such - please pay attention to the rules your state, local and school governments set forth to you! SUPPORT WRESTLING! I know some of you out there are wondering if you will get refunds, and such on wrestling items with USAW. Well, I'd say probably. But, think about what your asking for a refund on first. If you can let you money go - remember your just supporting wrestling!!!! Wrestling businesses, ISWA and USAW revenue is going to be down as well. If you can keep supporting, buying your cards, and all those things.... i know I will be grateful that you choose to support wrestling. Make sure you are following the ISWA Twitter and Instagram accounts. Daily "at home" wrestling drills are being shown. Its some great stuff!! Please repost it to your teams and clubs. If you have anything wrestling specific to post, and share - send the drill with a caption, and the tags to 812-786-2308 I want to share with you some other information below: A) A message from the USAW National Coaches Council. B ) National Wrestling Coaches Association Scholastic CEO Leadership Academy - It has been a good way for coaches to gain professional development, CEU's and other requirements schools have asked for teachers/coaches to complete. The certificate is also something you would like to hang in a frame on your office wall. C) USA Wrestling makes online National Coaches Education Program courses free to members until April 5th, 2020= Lets have Indiana be leaders in Copper and Bronze cards! They are free right now - challenge your club members to get their Bronze or Copper card for free!!! When the virus subsides, have them ready to coach!

Danny Struck ISWA State Coach IHSWCA Vice-President IHSWCA Regional Rep USAW National Coaches Council @danny_struck IG and Twitter A) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- A message from the USAW National Coaches Council. The USAW National Coaches Council represents the second largest demographic in the country.. the coaches. Yet within that coaching demographic is the parent, the wrestling apparel vendor, the tournament director and many others. These are undoubtedly difficult times for many members of our wrestling community. Yet, while difficult, we do know the resilience and fortitude of our wrestling community will sustain our passion for the worlds oldest and greatest sport during this period of delay. Since time immemorial, our sport has been blessed with weekly tournaments, an abundance of wrestling apparel, educated active coaches, gymnasiums/clubs to practice and an infrastructure which allowed all this to thrive. We will return to practice before you know it. We will be competing and reunited with our coaches when the time is right, the coaches who are always there for you win or lose, every weekend. We want to encourage everyone to be safe, but also be confident in the timely return of wrestling, the day when wrestling roars back into our lives and communities. That optimism can be contagious, spread it! Take a leap of faith, bet on wrestling, be part of the return! Yours in wrestling, The USA wrestling National Coaches Council B )------------------------------------------------------------------------ FROM THE NWCA: - FREE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES!!!! I hope you are doing well and what we all need to do to beat this COVID-19 Virus. I want to encourage you to take the time to complete the online modules as a part of the National Wrestling Coaches Association Scholastic CEO Leadership Academy. Either you have registered for a past Scholastic CEO Leadership Academy or are registered for one of this years SLA's. If you have not completed the online modules there is no better time than now. I think we all have some free time on our hands and this is a good way to help progress with the growth of wrestling. If you have registered for an upcoming SLA that has been postponed until this Fall it will be a good time to go ahead and complete the modules now. If you have completed the online modules and the Leadership Academy without receiving your certificate of completion email me and I will make sure we get this to you. It has been a good way for coaches to gain professional development, CEU's and other requirements schools have asked for teachers/coaches to complete.

  11. Remember that Micic was also younger for his grade on top of all of that.
  12. Congratulations to Ty Haskins from Portage for signing with Marian. He is projected to wrestle 125. View full signing
  13. He'll turn 26 that academic year. And he'll be transfer eligible and have great credentials. He could look for an opening and go for the ultra boss senior-year double of head coach-national champ.
  14. Exactly! I believe some of us wrestlers were put here 2 do bad things 2 bad people! My mom'a dead beat BFs didn't like when I came to visit her in HS and on..my little brother Chris Collins R.i.P was literally test driving a truck with the salesman and seen my moms ex that put her in hospital 5 years before..he commenced to putting the vehicle in park and Head kicked the bum 1 time knocking him stiff... The even better part of the story is that he got the car and ended up selling a V.I.P table worth of tickets to all the sales DEPT at the car lot for his upcoming fight😂
  15. If Micic is allowed to take another OR he would then finish his collegiate career in 2022 after graduating in HS in 2014. That would mean Senior Stevan Micic beat Freshman Nick Lee in 2014, yet Nick Lee would conclude his college eligibility before Micic. Crazy!
  16. You just don't know who might be around the corner...
  17. Castle High School is looking for one more team for the Castle Invite on 12/5/20. Guaranteed 5 matches. Current teams include Castle, Evansville Central, Evansville Harrison, Jasper, South Spencer, Tecumseh, and Vincennes. We have a JV wrestling all day as well. If interested, contract AD Brandon Taylor at btaylor@warrick.k12.in.us.
  18. Jimtown has advanced to Round 2 in the bracket challenge! If you wouldn’t mind helping us out and voting again we would greatly appreciate it. We are facing a team from Ohio and we know Indiana has a much better fan base than Ohio!
  19. Moral of the story is don't be a abusive p.o.s especially around a wrestler!
  20. I received a phone call from a college cross country teammate who lives in Las Cruces and he was delighted to share this story. I guess it becomes one of the corollary benefits of being a wrestler
  21. Congratulations to Will Stewart from South Spencer for signing with Marian. He is projected to wrestle 197, 285. View full signing
  22. From the NCAA By-Laws 12.8.1.6 Athletics Activity Waiver. The Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement, or a committee designated by it, shall have the authority to waive this provision by a two-thirds majority of its members present and voting to permit student-athletes to participate in: (Revised: 1/10/91, 1/9/96, 1/14/12, 7/31/14) (a) Official Pan American, World Championships, World Cup, World University Games (Universiade), World University Championships and Olympic training, tryouts and competition; (b) Officially recognized training and competition directly qualifying participants for final Olympic tryouts; or (c) Official tryouts and competition involving national teams sponsored by the appropriate national governing bodies of the U.S. Olympic Committee (or, for student-athletes representing another nation, the equivalent organization of that nation, or, for student-athletes competing in a non-Olympic sport, the equivalent organization of that sport). By "this provision" they mean the 5 year rule. So it would seem now that the Division 1 Council has denied an additional year of eligibility to winter sports, it would then be up to the Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement, or their designate, to decide on whether to grant an additional stoppage of the 5 year clock.
  23. Wrestling really does save lives kuddos to the kid in the video for taking action
  24. Barbarian Apparel is having a bracket challenge for a free set of Singlets and Jimtown needs your help with votes! I believe we are the only Indiana team in the bracket from my quick glance, if you have the Twitter we would be grateful if you Would give us a vote. Round 1 is underway now and we are pretty close to the team we are facing. thanks for your help https://twitter.com/barbarianwear/status/1244610856199106560
  25. Looks like the evening is more pro-wrestling but at least we have the afternoon time slots.
