Mendez Does a great job of recognizing the middle school guys on our youth forum. He does a top 25 so I took off all non 8th graders and pasted to the high school board. These guys will be making noise at the bank next year or at ISWA as first year cadets with some young High schoolers. Enjoy

If you don’t know ... Better ask somebody , The Great John Smith did !  


Pistol Pete 

That would be a big jump for mendez 109 to 125. Garcia looked full at 126 maybe Garcia vs Bryant and Mendez vs watts under the lights.

Would love a Watts/Mendez match. Given they wouldn’t see each other until state they could both be undefeated and that would be a huge match if it was it under the lights.

Pretty sure your probably going to add another 2x Champ in that mix . Pretty sure he wrestled a lot of 120 this year if Pistol remembers .

That’s true, I was slating him at 120 and Watts/Mendez at 126 but he could very well be at 126 as well. A healthy Boarman going up to 126 would make it even more fun.
