  1. By Drew Hughes Anyone that has been around Indiana wrestling in the last decade probably knows the name Chad Red. In high school Red had about as good of a career as anyone could ask for winning 4 state titles and going a perfect 183-0. Along with this he won 3 of the toughest off- season tournaments in the country; Fargo, Super 32, and FloNationals. He finished his high school career ranked #1 in the country at 132lbs along with being ranked #8 out of all seniors in his graduating class. Being one of the most sought after recruits Red decided on Nebraska as h

  3. By STEVE KRAH stvkrh905@gmail.com Real adversity meets opportunity. That’s the story of Jacob Linky. The wrestling room at Warsaw Community High School is filled with pulsing music and coaches barking instructions as more than three dozen Tigers get after it. One wrestler — junior Linky — goes through the workout, rehearsing his moves with his workout partner, cranking out pull-ups and running laps around the room. But without the sounds heard by the others. Linky lives in a world that is mostly silent. Wi

  4. By JEREMY HINES Thehines7@gmail.com For as long as Sullivan freshman Lane Gilbert can remember he has dreamed about having his hand raised at the Indiana High School wrestling state championships. He’s done more than dream about it. As a young kid he would go into the wrestling room at Sullivan High School and act out having his hand raised. It didn’t matter that nobody else was around him. In his imaginary scenario he always emerged victorious. No obstacle stood in his way. No opponent could beat him. He was the champ. That dream would never be taken away.

The trio is known around town as the Three Amigos, primarily for their success on the wrestling mat. They are tough wrestlers that like to grind out wins and be physical. One wouldn’t expect anything less from a Floyds Knobs resident. Floyds Knobs is named after the Knobst

Irick knew, because of the injury (he tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus), he wouldn’t be able to remain in the 220-pound weight class. He also knew he needed to get stronger, but he couldn’t do much with his legs in the weight room due to the surgery on his knee and the recovery time needed. So, he started working upper body.

With under a minute to go in the match Rodgers trailed Greenfield’s Cooper Noehre 7-4. Rodgers was wrestling for an individual title and a chance to all but secure a team title for the Irish. “It was nerve wracking,” Rodgers said. “It’s scary to be trailing like that. I don’t like it. But, you just have to think if you win, you win. If y

So when Katie (Downing) Kriebel and her dad met with Pendleton coach Dave Cloud about joining the high school team – she was a little nervous. Coach Cloud told her dad that he had never had a female wrestler before. “Dad told him that he had never had a daughter that wanted to wrestle before, either,” Kriebel said. “So, he told him that they were in the same boat.” Cloud agreed to let her wrestle. That would be the start of many firsts for coach Cloud where Kreibel was inv

Almost every time he stepped on the mat, he would eventually watch his opponent have his hand raised in victory. The losses piled up, and the frustration mounted along with it. “I’ve had some mental blocks in wrestling,” Cornwell said. “In sixth grade I was something like 1-26. I was so frustrated with myself. I didn’t think wrestling was for me. I really wanted to just throw in the towel.” That’s when Cornwell got a little encouragement from his family and one of his closest friends.

While most sane people run in the opposite direction of a fire, firefighters run towards it. Garcia is one of those that run toward the fire. A perfect example of this came a few weeks ago when Avon competed in the team state tournament. Garcia knew that he would have a gauntlet of top tier
