    Mike Ester

    I was around him a lot of times from the early 90s to late 2000s, but I won't forget the first. In my 8th grade mind in 1992, undefeated Aaron Wilson of Warsaw was unbeatable at 119 pounds and destined to win state. But senior Mike Ester had other ideas. After getting beat by Denny Schwartz of Adams Central at regional, Mike out-gutted the favored Wilson for an incredible upset win in a semi-state ticket round death draw. He went on to win semi-state and then take 3rd at state, beating Schwartz in the consolation final in his last high school match in a rematch of their regional championship. I distinctly remember my first glimpse of Ester's passion in that upset over Wilson and I saw it many more times in his coaching over the years. RIP

    Hey guys: I hope your as excited for the start of school as I am!!! You should be, you get to help kids!!! You are an "impactor", how can you not be excited!! One of the best ways to stay fired up is to always continue your coaching education. This fall, October 17-18 we have an awesome lineup we are very excited about! Thursday we have Mark Manning (head coach of Nebraska, head coach to Jordan Burroughs, James Green and Chad Red Jr.), Thursday we also have the IHSAA Rules interpretation meeting with Robert Faulkens, and we will give you a chance to have your voice heard! We will be having break out sessions to get ideas and help on "hot topics" in wrestling. Friday we have something new to the Fall clinic. The NWCA Leadership academy. This teaches the head coach of a team, to act more like the CEO of a program! We will be having leaders from the NWCA come in and teach this awesome course. Being that it is new, and we want big attendance. We are offering some scholarships to those that email me. These scholarships are for coaches that have not been to the fall clinic before, and will be coming with another paid coach, or veteran coach. Email me to see if your eligible. This is really going to be a motivating two days! Take a look at the flier, in the link below. The registration is in the link as well. You can mail in your registration if needed, however we prefer signing up online, and mailing your check. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1quk9-_nte98dB7AGDEax6u-nL6MJmFhhBtFehAFsi_E/edit?usp=sharing One more thing.....take a look at the attached video and see what Wisconsin Head Coach, Chris Bono, says about the Leadership academy!

    Very sorry to hear about Mike's passing. He was great to be around and like Jimmy T said, there was no one who did more to help kids who had nothing else in their lives. Staggering to think how many kids were given a future because of Mike's love for them. Miss you Mike.

    I don't even know where to start. This breaks me. Mike was brash. Mike was tough. Mike might have ticked some people off. But he was a dear friend and most of all he would do anything, anything humanly possible for kids. And especially kids who needed more guidance, more support and more love. Miss you coach.

    I hear “Hotcake” Harold Sorenson will travel form Wisconsin to challenge the living legend James “Flapjack” Flanders for the Midwest Pancake Eating Crown. As the current title holder Flanders gets to choose flavor of syrup and I’m hearing rumors of Butter Pecan in an attempt to throw Sorenson off his game. This is gonna be on epic eat-off.

    To go with the strong ties you have to the state or support the goals of your nation. Man that type of decision once divided families on the battlefield in years past. But at least for this one I think we all come out as winner if they both just make it to the finals.

    Tough kid. It’s just very hard for a freshman at an upper weight to place top 3. What is his weight? Who on these list do you have him beating?

    The kid has been in some national rankings. He won his state title at 152 last year in Michigan. The Willis kid from Florida was also in that bracket he is a two timer from Florida. He was also a Tulsa finalist back when. Jaden Reynolds gave Willis all he wanted and lost a though one 4-3, for 3rd and 4th. Jaden looked good. 148 was the toughest bracket in my opinion. Again, some kids got weight down and came to win.

    My OW goes to Logan Bailey. Mendez put on a show too. Crown Point, Avon, Brownsburg, EMD, Cathedral, Chesterton, Roncolli, and Mishawaka with multiple placers. Sorry if I missed any other school with multiple placers. Only top 4 place. Btw... weights were all funky, so take the results with a grain of salt. Some kids wrestled at off season walk around weight, and some kids cut hard. I like that fact. We get to see match ups that we would never get to see in season.

    Well, the state tournament actually starts at sectional time. So technically you have to win several matches before you step on the podium at Bankers Life. But no doubt IHPO is tough to win.

    Mike Ester, the late Matt Morris, and Demetrice Burton anchored that team.. Tony Graduated in 1991. Mike was the first person I met at Snider in the summer of 1988. I was an incoming senior transfer from SB Washington. He was an incoming 82lb freshman. He was scrappy and someone nicknamed him "Spike". He was also the only person I wrestled with in high school and in college. Mike was tough as nails as a wrestler. He wasn't quick nor strong. I wouldn't have called him an athlete. He was just tough as a bulldog. Same way in college. Hard worker and he expected the same from his athletes. It will be strange not seeing him at Snider Crossroads or some prestige-less off-season competition. I know he loved the sport and cared about the kids. He will be missed.

    I think it was easier for me to do Mater Dei's lineup then our own. Lots of question marks where kids weights are... hopefully we get a full squad at IHPO to get an idea where they will fall. 106: Goin/Bahl 113: Frazier/Goin 120: Bettich/Frazier/Roberson 126: Roberson/Tattini/Carter/Bettich 132: Taylor/Mendez/Roberson/Tattini 138: Mendez/Taylor/Tattini 145: Goodwin/Cruz 152: Cruz/Goodwin 160: Willems/Hollendoner 170: Hollendoner/Willems 182: Taborski/Ayala 195: McElroy/Ayala 220?285?

    The former Missouri Tiger was a four-time All-American WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue wrestling head coach Tony Ersland made a splashy hire Wednesday, welcoming four-time NCAA All-American Daniel Lewis into the Boilermaker wrestling room as a graduate assistant. The former Missouri Tiger competed at 165 and 174 pounds over the last four NCAA seasons, graduating as one of the top wrestlers in program history. “It’s not every day you have the opportunity to bring a four-time All-American into your room, and we’re thrilled to welcome Daniel to our team,” said Ersland. “His success on the mat speaks for itself, his abilities in the classroom are even more impressive and I can’t wait to get him around our guys.” The Blue Springs, Missouri native racked up a career record of 118-17 for the Tigers, earning All-America at 165 pounds as a freshman and sophomore and then at 174 pounds in his final two seasons. He’s one of only three four-time All-Americans in Missouri wrestling history, joining Ben Askren and J’Den Cox. “I feel blessed to be granted such an amazing opportunity to continue my education and start giving back to the sport that gave me so much,” said Lewis. “My glory days of college wrestling are over, but I plan to find success in the lessons and experiences I pass on to my new Boilermaker family.” Lewis won four straight Mid-American Conference individual titles, leading Missouri to the team championship in every season and was named the MAC Most Outstanding Wrestler in 2018. Fifty-three of his 118 career wins came by fall (44.9%), good for second-most in Missouri history, and he took home the 2019 Gorarrian Award for recording the most falls at the NCAA Championships. He earned MAC Freshman Wrestler of the Year honors and Missouri’s Marshall Esteppe Most Outstanding Freshman award in 2016, finishing 29-6 at 165 pounds and finishing fourth at the NCAA Championships. He followed up with a 28-6 mark in 2017, again at 165, and took sixth at the national tournament. After moving up to 174 pounds as a junior in 2017-18, Lewis reeled off 32 straight victories to start the season, including a flawless 26-0 mark in the regular season and his third straight MAC title. His 17 falls were a team and career high, and he went on to finish fourth at the NCAA Championships. Lewis’s senior season brought a similar level of success, posting a 28-3 overall mark with 17 falls, earning his fourth straight MAC crown and another fourth-place effort at the national tournament. He went undefeated in duals over his final two years and finished 25-1 in dual competition for his career. He shared Missouri’s Most Outstanding Wrestler honors in each of his last two seasons and was named the University of Missouri Male Athlete of the Year in 2019. Lewis earned his Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering in May of 2019 from Missouri with an emphasis in aerospace engineering and will be pursuing his master’s degree in Business Administration from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue. He completed a construction/property management internship with The Kroenke Group in Columbia, Missouri in the summer of 2018, and worked at ProCraft Mechanical in Broomfield, Colorado as a project operations intern in 2019.
