Mendez vs Frosh Nick Lee

How unfortunate was Nick Lee during his HS career. He has to be the best ever Indiana 1x Champ, correct?

I think about this every time I watch a Penn State match & the announcers mention that Lee was a State Champ. Even though they never say anything about it, you can often hear in their tone that they are surprised to see he only won 1 title.

But how fortunate were Indiana HS wrestling fans? I don't have a deep knowledge of the history of IHSAA wrestling, but that sure felt like a golden age to have 3 #1s overlapping in the same weight classes.

I love how we dismiss who Lee’s 2 losses were to. #1 in the country Chad Red and #1 in the country Micic. He pretty much buzzsawed everyone else in his way. Not saying he was better than Mendez his frosh year, but there could be a valid argument made in his favor. 

I love how we dismiss this guy wasn't the best in weight class for 3 years

Wow.  Lee as a senior would have waltzed through the state.  No question about it.

That's almost like saying B. Lee got pinned at semi-state his frosh year to avoid getting beat by Nick.  Or him dropping to 138 to avoid both Nick and Joe.

Senior Watts takes it to senior Early, no question. But I think senior Watts and senior Zack Davis are very, very close.

you must be from jimtown, I have wrestled all 3. Early would smash watts, Davis and early had a close match on controversial call sending Davis to the finals. 

1. Early 

2. Davis

3. Both Gimsons

4. Watts

Now that you mention it. Lets call it the Platinum Age of IHSAA. If we expand across weight classes. Mason Parris, Brayton Lee, Joe Lee, Nick Lee, Chad Red, Stevan Micic all overlapping. Wowza. You fans were all very spoiled.

I hate feeding the trolls, but in response to BackyardChamp’s three posts, in order;

1. 2 years, not three. And because he was running into other Indiana all-time greats who had the privilege of being born before him.

2. No.

3. He was ranked #1 in the country his senior year, which he forewent to prepare for college. However, I can name plenty of wrestlers that were “so good” that never ranked first nationally.

Brayton lee would smash Nick lee, then pin Joe lee directly after his match with nick

So if you’ve wrestled all three, would you mind letting the forum know who you are? Just so we can gauge how you would have fared against Nick Lee.

You think you are, but you may want to spend a little more time with the books. You should start with set theory as you are clearly mixing up the sets. It probably feels like Indiana is bigger than the nation to you, but you may may be surprised to learn that it is actually a subset of the nation. I think that is covered in the first chapter.

You’re right; you were actually one of my favorites to watch for a couple years. Still disagree with your points on Watts and Lee though lol.
