    Congrats to Brock Bobzein winning a Greco National Championship. Brock moved out of Indiana a few years ago... it would have been nice to have kept him and his younger brother in state.

    Jesse will be defending his #1 ranking... hopefully in Carver Hall. The Viper pit looked like a cool venue, but I think Hawkeye nation will have way better attendance... plus are family and friends won't have that far to drive. We are so pumped about this.

    I may be sick to my stomach if I have to root for Mendez at IU for four years

    I’d be good with that. And will buy you a case of Pepto if you need it.

    In my opinion how that match played out was a great turning point match for Mendez rise to a state title. I’m sure he knew he had the ability to take on the best in the state, but the course of that match put his feet to the fire enough to solidify that.

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – IU head coach Angel Escobedo has announced the addition of three time All-American and NCAA Champion Jason Tsirtsis as a volunteer assistant coach. Tsirtsis, a native of Crown Point, Ind., where he won four state championships in high school, started his college career at Northwestern where in his redshirt freshman season he won the NCAA Championship at 149 lb. That year, in 2014, Tsirtsis also was the Big Ten Champion, Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Intermat Freshman of the Year and Midlands Champion. Tsirtsis concluded his collegiate career in 2017-18 with Arizona State as an All-American with a seventh-place finish at NCAAs. He was named the Comeback Wrestler of the Year at the NCAA Championships by FloWrestling. I'm very excited to add Jason Tsirtsis to our staff,” Escobedo said. “Since day one, our focus has been to keep the best kids in state and I believe having an Indiana legend like Jason will help achieve this goal. He will work directly with our middle weights (149-165) and we are excited to have him join our program.” “I am extremely excited to join the wrestling family down in Bloomington,” Tsirtsis said. “Angel has done a great job at changing the culture within the program and I'm thrilled to help further the growth & development of our wrestlers. I can't wait to get down to Bloomington!” View full article

    Fans at IU matches better strap in for a long day, where every match goes to tiebreakers at 1-1.

    J.tsirtsis lost multiple times and had close match vs Devon jackson who's a 3x under the lights finalist(this takes nothing from his accomplishments and i'm splitting hairs here) .Jesse hasn't hardly given up any offensive points if any yet ...Angel Escobedo and Alex Tsirtsis were the most dominant I've seen next to mason parris... Lance Ellis ws ws decent too😂..but I'll say this Jason beat #1 nationally ranked guy as a freshman and no other guy can say that ...but then again Jesse is #1.

    Best of luck to him. I was told by a good friend a couple years ago to keep an eye on this kid named Jesse Mendez. Was told that he is the next 4Xer and could possibly be the best ever here in Indiana. I always take that with a grain of salt, UNTIL his routing of everyone last year. His display that he put on at state was something special to watch and confirmed what my friend had told me. It’s truly a treat as a wrestling fan to witness something like this. The last person that I recall that was just this dominant was Jason Tsirtsis. And he very well could be even better than TShirts when it’s all said and done. Go get’em kid.

    Brennen Cernus Transfer

    Congrats to you, but this post opens a whole can of worms for me. Did you move into Indiana & CMA? It seems like if that is the case it was primarily for athletic purposes though you state " Academics are our top priority and we expected to have a good balance with wrestling as well, unfortunately that was not the case." Hoping I'm wrong, but your post seems to make me think that way even with the quoted statement. Especially mentioning preference of coaches. Having been around Ohio & Indiana high school sports forums, this post brings up the whole private/parochial/charter vs public debate. Kudos to you and your son for having the luxury of attending those schools as most in the state do not. It's not a knock per se against you & your family but the IHSAA and the way they handle things.

    Brennen Cernus Transfer

    I'm Brennen's father. I received a text from a parent who's son attends Culver regarding this post and the comments made by AdamscoBuschhh. Just to clear the air you don't know me and we never met prior to the finals. I have no idea who you are or why you felt obligated to completely fabricate a post like this. We were in our hotel room between the break prior to finals and my dad doesn't even drink. Anyone that has been around my son knows that he is a quiet, respectful, and focused young man that is a hard worker. I truly feel sorry for you that you would make false statements aimed at a 15yr. old, its pathetic. My name is TJ Cernus, I'd like to know your real name as well. Moving forward, feel free to contact me directly so you can direct your false statements towards me rather than my son. Culver is not a military academy for kids with disciplinary issues. Any one with half a brain would already know this. If they did they would be gone in less than a month, the school has zero tolerance for this. It has military structure however it is not what would be considered rigid. Wyoming Seminary was initially our first school of choice last year prior to enrolling at Culver. We ended up choosing Culver because it was much closer to home and there were a few other families that we are friends with whose son's were also attending. We left Culver because the head coach was not what he portrayed himself or the program to be. There was no direction for the program. It was very unorganized, undisciplined, and there was a severe lack of technical coaching ability. Josh Harper was later added to the staff, he was the reason we decided to stay this past year. Josh was solid, he was intense, a good motivator, and he was there to make everyone better, he cared. Culver is an excellent academic academy and we were disappointed to leave. It was not an easy decision. Academics are our top priority and we expected to have a good balance with wrestling as well, unfortunately that was not the case. 1prouddad, thank you for your comment, we greatly appreciate it. Indiana puts on a great state tournament and we were proud to be able to be a part of it. My son and our family received an outpouring of support from complete strangers during the course of the season and this is rare. Indiana is very much like Ohio, the wrestling community is a pretty tight knit group that for the most part supports one another. There were numerous people who congratulated Brennen and our family after the finals that were genuinely happy for him. This will be an experience that we will never forget. Thank you Indiana. Best of luck.

    y'all are making Indiana wrestling so proud! Get that double gold Monster Mendez..I can only imagine if Silas was there healthy as well.. Any insight on how you think Silas stacks up vs the field? It's unreal and surreal to have HS Indiana boys dominating not only the state but the national level dominance as well that's proved to be more than enough to compete internationally is something to behold... There's enough ppl on this board and around the state that have seen elite in state talent over the years and up to this point he's doing things that a 10x more rare than being a 4xer (pulled that figure out of my rear) it speaks volumes about Jesse and his whole support system.. I'll be watching tomorrow rooting y'all on.. Take from them what they won't give you Jesse Mendez!

    Indiana's Best Ever...

    I made a post earlier about the best one-time state champion earlier, but it got me thinking... Who is Indiana's best ever based on accomplishments in HS alone? I've picked my top three, and it was very difficult choosing the third one. 1. Chad Red - 4x undefeated state champion (2013-16), Fargo champion, Super 32 champion, Flo national champion, Flo #1 at WNO, #7 P4P 2. Jason Tsirtsis - 4x state champion (2009-12), Fargo champion, 2x Flo national champion, FILA Cadet champion, FILA JR placer 3. Alex Tsirtsis - 4x undefeated state champion (2001-04), Fargo runner-up, FILA JR sixth place, Midlands competitor as a high school student (3rd ever).

    Indiana's Best Ever...

    If you're putting Sliga in there for his dominant senior year, there's no way you can leave Andrew Howe off that list. 3x Champ with his loss in the finals freshman year coming to a senior Reece Humphrey. Then actually did tech his way through the state tournament his senior year, and did it without really breaking a sweat.
