    Red Vs Lee ?

    I’m happy I haven’t seen it thus far, and I hope I don’t see this thread doesn’t break down into a Chad Red hate train. As Indiana wrestling fans, it’s always fun to see our own elite competitors face off, but sometimes people on this board or in the FloWrestling comments get a little carried away with their praise for Nick Lee that they bash CJ. I understand being passionate, especially the EMD crowd, but you have to remember that these are two phenomenal grapplers and Nick showed us tonight how much he’s improved in one year, hats off to him. Taking nothing away from him though, Chad Red is still Chad Red. He’s a big match guy and always gives us some big wins when it matters most. They’re both two-time All-Americans on the Division I level for a reason, and both are capable of winning the 141 lb class. Keep it classy and let’s continue to keep negativity away from these young men on either end.

    Carroll vs the SAC

    This is an apples to oranges conversation. You can frame the picture in whatever you lens you want to look at it. As a former head coach in the SAC, it is true, there are many factors that come into play that make the current climate and conditions of improving the overall quality of the SAC an uphill battle. Does that mean that people haven’t been trying for years, of course they have. My last year at Wayne, out of 45 guys on our team, I think 2 had a driver’s license and more than 95% had never stepped on a mat before high school. We worked our tails off to prepare them the best we could for any situation, wrestling or life. There are ebbs and flows to it. At one point, the best teams in the SAC were as good, if not better than the best non-SAC Allen County teams. Recent history shows the depth and strength of Carroll’s program is far more consistent. From 2014-2016, Wayne tied or placed higher than Carroll at IHSAA State. Did that make it a better program than Carroll? Of course not. You can just choose to narrow the focus on what you want to. Boiling it down to desire or want to just oversimplifies a far more complex topic.

    It’s a shame that the SAC only wanted Carroll and Homestead for the so called, “revenue sports.” However, whether you dislike purple, it should be noted that according to a study a few years ago, purple was the most used color of Indiana schools

    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.

    Red Vs Lee ?

    I am going out on a limb here, but I will go Lee with a major decision. What will be most interesting to me is to see is how Red deals with Lee's offense. No one has come close to stopping him when he takes a shot (which is often) in college or in the Sr Open (with the exception of Jordan Oliver). While he has not wrestled anyone with even remotely the defensive skills of Red yet in folkstyle this year, he certainly did so in freestyle at the Sr. Open. Of course, the caveat is freestyle does not equal folkstyle. Meanwhile, Red can re-attack or turn your offense into his offense with the best of them. All of that is another way of saying I am really looking forward to Friday night.

    Next Level

    I think the level of wrestling by Indiana kids in college has never been higher, or at least deeper. I know guys like Andrew Howe and Angel Escobedo had big time success, but has their ever been this many? Just at the high DI level you have the following who have a legit shot at All-American status... 125 - Drew Hildebrandt 125 - Brock Hudkins (not sure of his status this year) 133 - Stevan Micic (taking Olympic Redshirt) 141 - Nick Lee, Chad Red 149 - Brayton Lee 165 - Drew Hughes (longshot this year) 174 - Dylan Lydy, Ben Harvey 197 - Lucas Davison 285 - Mason Parris I'd put the over under on DI AA's this year at 5. As alluded to in his original post, there are others making waves in DII, DIII and NAIA. One example of a guy kicking some tail this year many may not know about is Skyler Lykins at Colorado School of Mines. He's 14-2 and ranked in the top ten in DII at 165. FWIW, for those of you that don't venture over, we have some decent discussions and post results over on the College Forum. Feel free to join us and add results, especially for guys that may be getting overlooked!

    Wrestled between 145-160 from eighth grade to senior year(2014). A year and a half ago I would have been wrestling 220, but now I’m back down to the 170 class, and could make the cut back to 160 pretty easily.

    Red Vs Lee ?

    Glad I stayed in the dark until I had a chance to watch the match. Lee’s top game is getting pretty solid. If he can avoid scramble situations of the takedown he is a huge national title threat. Reds didn’t get anything off tonight, which is unfortunate. But he seems to always be a gamer come national tournament time. Hopefully that continues to be the case.

    Carroll vs the SAC

    The SAC is unlucky that Carroll isn't in the SAC when it comes to wrestling. Carroll has a better program than SAC schools and them joining the SAC would only help teams to improve. Carroll is outside of FWCS which already provides them with a step up as there's more consistency and support from their administration. FWCS doesn't provide the same level of athletic support and focus except for a few events such as the SAC Holiday basketball tournament. If you look at things like access to resources, feeder programs, coaching longevity, training facilities, family support, community support, and competition schedule it makes complete sense that Carroll is a better program. FWCS has a long way to go to get to Carroll’s level but it’s not an impossible task. One of the best things to improve programs would be to increase the difficulty of a programs schedule and create a system that provides stability and accountability for the athletes. Most FWCS wrestlers first learn about wrestling when they’re in High School and many programs have few 4 year wrestlers. That’s a huge disadvantage especially in a sport like wrestling where mat time means so much for an athlete’s comfortability and confidence. There’s a lot of weird and unnatural positions, in comparison to other sports, that wrestlers find themselves in and this is where many FWCS wrestlers have difficulties. Setting up feeder programs would do wonders for FWCS programs but FWCS administration makes it very difficult to do so. If Carroll joined the SAC I’m sure they wouldn’t enjoy it as it would reduce the competitiveness of their schedule as they would have to attend the SAC team tournament, along with the SAC individual tournament. It would however greatly help other teams as it would provide a new measuring stick. Carroll would win the conference titles for a few years but the competition would increase the overall talent of Northeast Indiana. I know it can be discouraging for athletes to place in the top spots of their conference and then not advance to Regionals or Semi-State. Many wrestlers would rather not be a conference champion if it meant advancing further in the state tournament. I’d rather be a 20-10 State Qualifier than a 29-1 Sectional participant.

    Nick Lee Podcast Interview

    Here is a nice interview on the BaschaMania podcast, covering a variety of topics. It's 42 minutes long with Nick on for roughly 35 of them. A couple of things that stood out to me. 1. Nick doesn't say a whole lot in specifics, but I hear a potential future coach when listening to him about his approach. 2. I'm paraphrasing, but one comment that stuck out to me was when he was asked about the Penn State room and whether it was the best. He said that he couldn't speak on every other room in the country, but he didn't know of another place that he could walk into and get his butt kicked every single day. He then went on to talk about working to get better. Look up BaschaMania where ever you get podcasts or go to baschamania.com. The guy has interviewed Jason Nolf, Retherford, Spencer Lee, Jordan Oliver and a who's who of wrestling.

    By JEREMY HINES Thehines7@gmail.com Guerin Catholic has had a wrestling program for 15 years. Senior Jeff Dunasky is hoping to finally give the program its first state qualifier. Dunasky has already accomplished many firsts for the Golden Eagles. He’s the first sectional champion the school has had in wrestling. He’s the first two-time sectional champion. He’s the first Circle City Conference champion. But, being the first state qualifier would be the icing on the cake for the Guerin senior. “I want to do something nobody else has ever done from our school,” Dunasky said. “It would mean so much to me. It would be the reward for all the hard work I’ve put in. All the weight cutting. All the grinding out of hard tournaments. But it wouldn’t just be for me. It would be an accomplishment for my coaches and my practice partners as well. It would be something for the whole school.” Last season Dunasky fell just short of earning a trip to Banker’s Life Fieldhouse for the state finals. He lost in the ticket round of the New Castle semistate to Warren Central’s Antwaun Graves. “Last year when Jeff lost in the ticket round, the next Monday he was back in the room hungry to get better,” Guerin coach Andrew Fleenor said. “We watched the state finals the next week and then he wrestled at the Indy Nationals that next weekend. He went everywhere during the offseason. He made Team Indiana. He went to Fargo. He did the Disney Duals. He wrestled several places with the Indiana Outlaws. We were in Brownsburg’s room quite a bit. He trained a lot at Carmel USA with Coach Pendoski. He pushed himself to get better.” On the mat Dunasky likes to push the pace. He is a takedown artist and has great conditioning. That has helped him climb to the No. 9 spot in the 145 rankings this season. “He’s quick,” Fleenor said. “He pushes the pace. He has over 500 takedowns in four years. He’s really good on his feet.” Dunasky agrees with his coach’s assessment. “I would describe myself as fast-paced and a little bit funky,” Dunasky said. “I am comfortable in awkward situations and I like to use that to my advantage. I go hard and enjoy pushing the pace.” Dunasky’s favorite wrestling moment in his career so far was winning his first sectional title two years ago. “That was our school’s first sectional title,” Dunasky said. “It was a big moment for us. It was very memorable. I had people in the school and in the community congratulating me and saying they were proud of me. That really fired me up to get better. I feel like positive reinforcement leads to positive results. That’s why I really started pushing myself even harder.” In the wrestling room Dunasky often times acts as another coach in the room, helping the younger wrestlers understand moves and wrestling philosophy. “He definitely fills the leadership role on our team,” Fleenor said. “It’s like having another coach in the room. The team follows his lead, for sure. Without a doubt he sets the tone for our team.” In addition to chasing the dream of being a state qualifier, Dunasky wants to leave his legacy at Guerin Catholic. He says his faith is the most important thing, but he also wants people to know that hard work can pay off. “Jeff will be the most decorated wrestler to ever come through our program,” Fleenor said. “He will leave a legacy that other kids will strive for. He’s 114-32. He’s a two-time section champ, three time regional qualifier, two-time semistate qualifier. He won the Mooresville Holiday tournament twice. He’s our first ever conference champion and he won the Robert Porter Invite in Chicago this year.” Off the mat Dunasky likes to dabble in many things. He enjoys playing video games, rock climbing and even ice skating. “There are a lot of things to life outside of wrestling and I like to explore all those things,” he said. When it comes to his future, he plans on going to college although he’s not certain if he will wrestle or not. He does want to stay involved in the sport. Like is the case with his hobbies, he also has several interests for his possible career. He has considered agriculture, criminal law or even something in technology. “I have a lot of interests and it’s really hard to narrow those down. View full article

    National Preps

    I would admit that there are some things that are difficult with having the IHSAA as our sports sanctioning body, but I think it would be a horrible detriment to the sport if we did not have them. Without the IHSAA the sport at the high school level would resemble the sport at the youth level. So teams would become all-star travel teams with-in a few years. Not to mention that schools would not put the same funding and care into their programs... Why would a school keep and maintain a wrestling room for a club team that isn't IHSAA sanctioned? I also think that overall numbers would take a huge hit. Think of how many kids come out for wrestling to just be a part of the team you would lose all of those kids. Busing, uniforms, gym schedules all would play a role as well. Finally no IHSAA no state tourney like we have now. There would be no semi-states in great facilities, no state finals at Banker's Life. This isn't to say that the say that wrestling would die if we went this route, it would just look much different and be much worse imo.
