    History of #1 vs #1

    Back in 2011, Doug Welch (152) would beat up on Chad Welch (160) everyday in practice.

    Hall of fame coach Bob Read was honored as he coached his final home dual after 40 plus years at Plymouth high school. It was a special night watching past wrestlers come from literally all over the country to honor him. Coach hates any attention on himself but this was well deserving. I’ve known this man over 40 years and I can honestly say I’ve never met a man with more class, ethics and integrity in my life. The video tribute showed countless former wrestlers share how they have become the husbands, fathers and men they are because of the time and care coach poured into their lives. He’s had numerous state qualifiers, placers and champions but the mentoring he has poured into people is what last. I’ve never met a man who hates to lose and loves to win more but it’s the lessons in life that leaves the greatest marks on his wrestlers. He is a man that is driven by his faith, his family and simply pouring into young men’s lives. I felt like I was peeling an onion all night! Thank you coach Read for all you’ve done in this great sport in Plymouth and in Indiana. Well deserved.

    The rule is you gain 15 pounds once you get married and an extra 10 for every kid. Its like the game of life, but instead of getting little yellow pink and blue pegs to put in your car, you get fat and larger clothes.

    Correct. It is my understanding that they are published every 2 years for reclassification purposes in order for the IHSAA to assign new host sites if needed. It is also my understanding that updated enrollment figures are released every year. Host site realignment is not a concern for the IHSWCA Team State tournament. It seems logical to use up to date enrollment figures, yearly, since they are available.

    Wes English as a soph chased Tsirtsis his senior year. 4 matches that got tighter as the state series went on. Tsirtsis was still a step ahead but they were still close compared to his other results.

    Mendez is clearly having an impact on which weight classes some of our top wrestlers are competing at. Going off of the wrestler’s credentials on latest IM state rankings 126 = 15 state placements and 5 state qualifiers 132 = 3 state placements and 10 state qualifiers 138 = 8 state placements and 5 state qualifiers

    Another angle is, will Robert Faulkens end up taking over the main commissioner position. If he does then who may take over wrestling as one of their main responsibilities. That decision will also determine what happens with wrestling (good and/or bad) over the next several years.

    Those losses were to top 5 ranked guys in the county and one kid at the world level. There is no one in Indiana now or on the way up that will be that good at his weight.

    Lol you call me NOSTRADAMUS then turn around and give your prediction... and i'm sure every guy he's wrestled tried to "meet the challenge"..He won't be challenged in Indiana as much as you wanna believe it and will be "unscathed" if he's remains healthy.. and next time you want to be funny or throw shade at least spell my name right, NOSTRADAMUS!

    Didn’t or couldn’t .. maybe I’m wrong but wasn’t his age the reason he wasn’t allowed to compete. Thinking he turned 19 during wrestling season, which would of kept from competing, or at least the post season. Crazy how parents made choices or for whatever reason kids ages vary. I turned 18 first week of college, other kids turning 19 during school year lol.

    Last wrestled 119 in ‘91, I’m below 220 and working to get down to 185-190. Back injuries an a surgery have limited my workouts off an on the last decade. Four years ago I was about the same weight and had a good year with back problems ( no issues ) and got daily workouts in and got myself down to 174. A month after tho had some issues and gained it mostly all back.

    I finally made it up to 119 pound class during my senior season in 1975. Currently, I’d wrestle 195. (To my credit I did grow a few inches taller after high school ... but I’m still way too heavy. 😉)

    Maybe if 2 or 3 in a row happens. Find a way to improve the IHSAA's success factor in that they only move up for 1 year and not two?

    Here is the new IHSAA State tournament idea. 380 man bracket. split up into 8 days of wrestling non-stop. No classes because with this tournament every school is entered in. If there is a weight class that Is full (there isn't). There may need to be a round robin with the two best kids with records. Then after all of this, there are random draws for seedings. Next, the finals match will be the coaches and their wrestlers doing a tag team like deal at Bankers Life. This is single elimination because "if ya ain't first you're last" May the best wrestler win, and everyone else go home. Also, the heavyweight and 106 lbs state champ have to wrestle. Good luck boys and girls

    If we are going off of “impressive or dominant” you forgot Andrew Howe- only loss was to Reece Humphrey. I think there is a strong case that Andrew Howe is still (although Mendez could catch him and Mason Parris flirted with it) the best Indiana wrestler of all time. Even with his one loss. And though I never saw him wrestle I am assuming people also tried to avoid Lance Ellis.

    Alex Tsirtsis had a close match with Craig Weinzapfel from Mater Dei. Craig actually beat him in freestyle in high school. Then in high school state finals... maybe it was the semi finals where Alex beat Craig by a few points. Angel Escobedo had a few close matches in his career and even one loss out of state. Jason Tsirtsis has a few close matches. Blake Maurer was the king of winning close matches. Same with Chad Red. Mason Paris’s was dominate but had one loss his freshman year. He is comparable. All the Lee has losses. I’ve followed Indiana high school wrestling since 1999 and haven’t seen anyone like Jesse Mendez.

    The tournament is seeded after weigh-ins. Given the travel distance for some teams, this was more ideal given that it is an eight team tournament with most kids having head to head already and avoids a seeding meeting on an alternate day. I am personally selfish and miss the free meal I get attending the seeding meeting however!

    For the girls, everything is the same except no weight classes. They are tougher, so they don't need a weight class to protect the heavier weights from the smaller weights.

    Mendez is impressive. He’s still a kid and still human. I’d like to believe he will be challenged before he graduates. All the greats were tested at some point. Hopefully it will be a Panther.
