The Best Wrestler in the History of YOUR school

Recommended Posts

Portage - Leroy Vega

Chesterton - Keith Davison

Lake Central - Mike Escobedo or Vince Sessa

 

How about Merrillville?  There are quite a few that i would consider..

 

I think a strong argument could be made for picking  Sean McMurray-Portgage.    I would go with Dexter Larimore-Merrillville

Sean, how does your high school state tournament resume compare to Leroy's?

 

 

Vega - 3x placer 3,1,1

Me - 4x Placer 7,1,1,1

 

But Vega won a double title his senior year i think... He ended up with a few national titles..

1 - Reece Humphrey: IHSAA State Finals Qual, 1st, 1st, 1st; Junior National Freestyle Runner-Up; 2X Div 1 NCAA All-American

2- Cashe' Quiroga: IHSAA State Finals Qual, 2nd, 1st, 3rd; Junior National Freestyle Champion, Div 1 NCAA All-American (at least once)

T3-Brandon Ingalls: IHSAA State Finals 1st, 5th, 1st

T3-Brad Stephens: IHSAA State Finals 4th, 1st, 1st

4- Case Hooper: IHSAA State Finals Qual, 1st, 1st

5 - Brandon Nelsen: IHSAA State Finals 4th, 3rd, 3rd, 1st, only 4X state placewinner in LN history, Junior National Freestyle All-American

 

I'm not sure if Ingalls, Stephens, or Hooper had any success on the National level. If not, I'd put Nelsen above them.

I'm pretty sure that Hooper was runner up at Sr. Nationals in '93.  Ingalls was dominate his senior year, nobody really came close to him that I can recall.  Just from seeing these guys, I'd put Humphrey at #1, Ingalls and #2 and Hooper #3, with Quiroga #4.  this is based strictly off of HS results.

David Palmer won 2X for Delta. His 10th grade title was at Muncie South. He was a Junior National Champion though.

I believe John Ginther was probably the most decorated Delta Eagle. If I am not mistaken, he was 4th-1st-1st and

an NCAA All-American at Arizona State.

David Palmer was a freshman state runner-up for Muncie Southside (only loss of the year was in the finals). State Champ undefeated as a sophmore for Muncie South, then Junior and Senior undefeated State Champ for Delta. Yes, John Ginther was a monster. Delta has had many that could qualify as best including Trent McCormick, now coaching Yorktown. I would not overlook Craig Campbell 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 1985 State Champ. David Locke was a State Champ and a World Champ at the Cadet level also. Delta was truly statcked in the early to mid 80's.

Whiteland Community High School- Has had some standouts in recent history, the ones that stands out the most would be.

 

Jason Fryar - State Champ

Chris Cooper- SQ, State Champ (beat Bedoy and Dolly that year)

Clint Palmore - 6th, State Champ (Beat Macke in the finals)

Matt Fields - 8th, 5th, State Champ (Beat Taylor March in the finals)

 

They have had other placers and qualifiers, but these have to be at the top of the list.

Palmore beat Coughlin in the finals, not Macke.

For Center Grove, you have to include the Gaskin brothers, Tom and Ron, from back in the 70's.

Center Grove

 

Ron Gaskins would be the unquestioned #1 as he placed 3rd, 1st, and 1st.  After him you could debate quite a bit.

 

Brandon Yates (6th, 4th)

Joey Strausburg (4th, 3rd, 2nd)

Jay Yates (SQ, 5th, 2nd)

John Baxter (3rd, 2nd)

Jeremy VanAlstyne (SQ, 1st)

Tanner Yates (4th, 5th)

Shelby Mappes (SQ, 3rd)

Matt Milton (6th, 6th)

Thanks jlittlejohn.  I couldnt think of his name.

 

sb25, Obrien finished 3rd I think.

 

I would still vote Brimmage.  He wrestled against a great 171 lb class his junior and senior year.  Gill Journey (2nd, 2nd, 3rd), Will Hill (state champ 95), Dan Pleak (state champ 94), James Brimm (4th, 3rd, 189 state champ 95), Robert Miller (state champ 93).  I know Brimmage beat Hill, Brimm and Miller during those years.  Im pretty sure he beat Pleak and maybe Journey.
