Union County vs Mater Dei may be worth the price of admission.  Both are solid.  Have to give the edge to Union County in the upper weights though.

It's not a dual format. Are you saying that these teams are going to run away with it?

Anytime you have #2 Avon vs. #3 EMD is worth the admission !

Seriously, how many Ervin kids are there?  Are some of these cousins or did Mama and Papa Ervin not have cable TV the last 20 years?

 

On this team, the three Ervin's are brothers (Jr. Saul, and Fr. twins Micah and Mathias). But in the past many of them have been cousins. Papa and Mama had 4 boys and 2 girls, then those all had approximately 1000 kids lol. There was an article in the Courier-Press a few years ago about this family.

Thanks for sharing.  I knew a decent amount about the Ervin's, but was not previously aware that Memorial's Wedding family was another off shoot of that clan.

It's funny you ask if they didn't have cable TV when the family fortune I believe is from running cable TV to almost or all of Western Kentucky.  Pretty prominent family outside of wrestling I believe.

Hook's Picks

 

132- md's Luigs and union's Ervin produced the "top match" in 2015. This could happen again, IF they get through the semifinal. Four legitimate contenders will vie for the final. Don't miss a match in this bracket!

 

152- same deal; a loaded bracket. There may be a surprise entry here...

 

Hwt- can't see anyone but ripple and Henson on the center mat. These two both have another gear; I would like to see it. What will it be? Two very good athletes going at it, or two super tankers in a super dull push fest? Both have a chance at a deep run...turn the dogs loose!

 

Two new entries for gastro enthusiasts:

 

Breakfast- kite and key on historic Franklin street. Only a few minutes from md with the best coffee and friendliest staff in the city.

Lunch or supper- try azzip pizza for a truly unique pizza experience. I STRONGLY recommend the "westsider". It is topped with grippo chips. To immerse yourself in the experience, wash it down with a ski. You're welcome.

Can't wait to see how Avon stacks up at EMD. I like that only Avon thinks the Avon kids have a chance.It might be like at Semi State 2 years ago in Evansville when Avon won and they would not announce it or give Avon the award. Avon's Coach had to go up to the head table and ask for it. any where in Evansville is a VERY tough place to win, even when you win. :-)

I don't see Ervin at 170 winning it. But I do think Saul at 132 takes the crown. Also, Sam Bacon (union 120) just took the top ranked kid in Ky to overtime. He could place high on the podium at the Holiday Classic. Any reason on why memorial is not competing this year? Can't wait to see this tournament.

Deepest Weight Class-138

HM: 106-132-220

 

Weakest Weight Class- 170

HM: 195-285-120

 

Most anticipated match

1. Saul Ervin vs. Kyle Luiguis- Last year Ervin won 3-1 in the finals

2. Joe Lee vs Burk Van Horn- Indiana’s #1 versus #2

3. Avery Buckman vs Jaden Sonner Both are defending classic champions

4. Brett Henson vs Wade Ripple- Possible Semi State Finals match and top ten hwts

 

Question to be answered

1. Can Hinderlifter or Rioux give Kentucky’s stud middle schooler a match at 106?

2.  Will Van Horn or Lee bump up or down to avoid facing each other?

3.  Can Mason Miranda pull the upset of Ervin or Luigis?

4. How good is Sellmer?  He is having a great year in beating Melloh of Cathedral and losing to Rumph in OT.  I can see him getting 1st or 5th as 138 is loaded!

5.  Who from Avon will have a mediocre tournament but make it to state?  Last year Jacob Clark finished 5th at Mater Dei but 7th at state.  Conley finished 5th at Mater Dei and was a SQ. 

6. Most importantly, who wins the team race??  Union County beat Castle worse than Mater Dei did.  Team Rankings- Union County #1, Avon #2, Mater Dei #3. 

 

How many state champs will come from the classic? Every year seems to produce around 3-7 state champs.

Predictions- I say 9 state champs

#1 (KY) Union Zeke Escalena 

#1 Avon Asa Garcia

#2 (KY) St. X Nate Wheeler

#1 (KY) Union Saul Ervin

#1 (KY) Union Bryce Sheffer

#1 MD Joe Lee 
#2 FC. Van Horn

#3 (KY) Union Avery Buckman
