    Jesse Mendez

    So me being the mother of one of his opponents of course I'm going to root for my kid.. But I would just like to say Jesse is an amazing wrestler and even better individual.. Jace did not finish his high school career quite like he wanted do to an injury he couldn't control happened and Jesse by no means had to reach out to him but he did. Jesse I don't know if you will see this but I would like to thank you and congratulate you on your 3rd 1st place finish! We love watching you wrestle and wish you the best in the future!

  3. It doesn't matter if random fans remember who a "champion" is. It matters to the kids that win and their schools. High school athletics should not be about the wins and losses, it NEEDS to be about building up great kids to be GREATER adults. More kids participating in wrestling or other sports will never be a bad thing. Right now our participation is on a sharp decline and we need to get it back to a solid level. To what degree do we need to kill our sport to realize that this one true champion thing is detrimental to the sport? Do we have to lose 25 teams? 50 teams, 100? How man

  4. Just came across this picture of Montgomery from Brownsburg talking to Heath from Leo after their match. I know a lot of these guys who wrestle each other are practicing together all the time and it’s amazing to see how much they respect each other. Does anyone else have any pictures or examples of instances like this?

  9. I think that Ty Mills was really good despite never winning a championship. He went 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, and had multiple wins over state champs in his career, like Asa Garcia and Jacob Moran. Crazy that he was never able to get a title, I think the closest he got was his junior year when he lost by one point to Cayden Rooks.

  11. In my opinion. Coaches encouraging kids to do one sport only is the biggest issue to why participation in all sports is down.

  12. Yea when I watched it live I never seen Baumann nod because I jumped out of my seat. Insane man. He could of easily wrestled to not lose and gave up a reversal etc etc... he wrestled to keep scoring insane. Just like when he was on top yea he got too high and kept giving up reversals which made the match entertaining but he wrestled to turn him/pin him. He didn’t wrestle to just ride him. He was always looking to score and wrestled loose I loved it. Ruhlman at 220, Jesse, Zeke, Hall were all very impressive but the most entertaining wrestler for me to watch was Baumann!

  15. Most people won't ever understand small school athletics. It's easy to say just work harder. I've been coaching small schools for 33 years. It's been a struggle for most of them. We don't have the same opportunities as big schools. The lack of facilities,multiple coaches and practice partners are the biggest hurdles we struggle with.

  16. And you could argue Reynolds as a 7th grader, and Hockaday, Brewer, Henry, Forrestsr as 8th graders all could have placed this year. Not to mention the smaller 7th graders like Dickman, Haines or the younger 7th graders Rojas or Day in 2 years that are placers and eventual champs. It won’t be #TheCounty as much as it will be #TheBurg. Their expectations along with their coaches are state championships, not placing. It will be a fun next 5 years! The wave is coming for sure.

    I find the whole "down year" and "recruiting" notions preposterous when talking about EMD. They have always had the best JV in the state and have always had a top flight varsity team as far back as my mind can recall. The only thing that would alarm me is if they suddenly started to hover toward or go below the bottom of the top ten teams in the state.

Why have they been able to keep participation at a higher and more consistent number? Statically speaking, they are a comparable state due to the number of schools that support a wrestling program,

    State recap

    First and foremost, another great season wrestlers. Thank you and to our Seniors, I wish you the best in your next journey. You have not disappointed. 106- ACTION Jackson was all business from the get go. This sophomore is going to be fun to watch the next couple years. 113- 4X time state placer and now 2X time CHAMP wasn’t about to be denied. Junior Ruble wrestles hard and as a junior, we will see him again next year for some more excitement. 120-Great hand fighting while on their feet. But Lemley was just too much on top. He had over 3:00 ride time against a sol

    Kudos to this guy! I'm a late comer with him, but man, he is a tough and dangerous wrestler for anyone he faces. He can score on anyone and is very hard to score on. Makes everyone earn it every time. Thanks for your hard work.

    If Cottey has a 12-1 lead and gets aggressive and gets caught and stuck everyone would be saying he shoulda just played it safe and not been so aggressive with that lead. Lol.

    Baumann Vs Majors

    This is like one of those things you watch that there was just so much going on that you could probably see something new everytime. Like when he hit that Lat, I missed coach coach in the background jumping and then Baumann himself nodding to the crowd. They knew it! none of this is a knock on Majors as he was one hell of a competitor and brought it too. And just classy at the end.

    Parris' dump series on everybody was unstoppable.. HWBubba Dickerson hitting hit famous Dump and Pinning B.J Scott in a minute 95 finals was nasty barely accumulated 10 mins on the mat at state. Nosko chin whipping Milius(had over 200 TDs that season I heard) in the 03 finals was unreal. Mckinleys Headlock on Kieffer was BRUTAL, you could feel the thud! Mendez toss on lil Ruhlman was beautiful. Allred using the NC patented bar and Wrist Coach Black and him mastered was lights out!

  44. My hat goes off to this kid and I had the pleasure of watching him all the way from Texas for 4 years. This kid could’ve went up once he saw Mendez was in his weight class, but instead he stuck around and competed like the warrior he is! He gave Mendez his most competitive match all year and earned his respect. He’s on my Mt. Rushmore of favorite MD wrestlers and I know the kid will go on to do great things in the future. Once again thank you Blake Boarman it was a pleasure watching you compete for past 4 years!

    Couldn’t have said it better. I wonder how many people commenting on Cottey’s match have ever been in a position like this. No need to put your lead at risk when you’re up 10+ points after the first.

    State recap

    Mater Dei fans have a right to crow a bit. They were handed a tough draw first round but as a team they wrestled hard. Coming from NE, I was rooting for Chesterton, who also wrestled well, but I have to concede that MD deserved the trophy.
