Really hard to say this early on about a class.

 

There have been so many good ones. 2004 was loaded, with its 9 champs and numerous legends amongst them:

 

112 Chris Miller (3 time placer)

119 Jose Escobedo (4 time qualifier, 3 time placer, 2 time finalist..part of the legendary Griffith group of that era)

135 Andrae Hernandez (2-timer, junior national runner-up)

140 Darren Elkins (UFC mainstay and world top 10)

145 Alex Tsirtsis (4-timer, 236-0, some people's GOAT)

160 Adam O'Neill (small school college AA)

171 Blake Maurer (4-timer, junior AA, some people's GOAT)

189 Heath VanDeventer (3-time top 3, cadet AA)

275 Chad Ruggeri (arguably most electrifying state run ever...3 first period throws to pins--including the final--and one tech off of 3 throws)

 

Add Reece, Angel, Coughlin, Kasten to that list of state champs that year too--what an unbelievable all-time group of state champs

The national success of the class of 2016 with Red, Rypel, Streck, and Hughes amongst others is hard to beat.

If the 2004 class only had 9 different state champs then that is a below average class in terms of number of state champs? Do you see why......? I'm sure there were many more but you are looking at the question differently then then the actual question of graduating class.
