    Multi-time Middle School State Champs?

    Mis from Griffith has won 2 and will be going for 3 this year if I'm not mistaken.

    Tulsa Nationals

    I knew he was attending Portage at some point, someone stated dad may take him to Illinois, wasn't sure if it happened. I know nothing about his current status as far as school attendance, which was the reason for my uncertainty. So in summation, you're wrong, I didn't/don't know where he goes to school, and I've been called worse than ridiculous, so I'm ok with that

    Jacob Moran is the Sophomore, not sure where he attends school. Jesse Mendez is a 7th grade student, so 2 years before his impact is felt.
  4. Ah, so no list, just that wrestling is number 1. I guess I could use the Google machine to find it, but was being lazy and hoped you just had that laying around.
  5. Your second point regarding wrestlers having one of the highest rates for first generation student-athletes, is that information you found, or is that a personal belief you are sharing? I'd like to see that list of data if the NCAA truly compiles it. I'd imagine your country club sports, tennis, golf, and swimming would be low on that list, but I'd like to see how things rank. Thanks!

    Article: 2014 Al Smith Preview

    GAT, I tried sending you a PM, but you apparently do not receive them, so I'll ask here. Has Portage ever been a part of the Al Smith? I thought they were in the past, but could be wrong. Where are you wrestling this week?

    106 match Hatch/Long Friday night

    Dude, why don't you have this message in person or through private message? No need to air your dirty laundry. Doesn't look like you spent your tax dollars well in the classroom either, add your former teachers to the list of people you are upset with.

    Bankers Life Standout

    Came in with 10 losses, but wrestled like he didn't want another. Unbelievable kid who deserved a day like that. Worked his tail off for 4 years and made the most of his opportunity. Went home after day one of the Al Smith and goes on to take home a 3rd place metal at state, talk about not giving up. So proud of him.

    Let it begin, Chad Red vs Nick Lee

    Lee to his fans: please stop talking me up and making yourselves look foolish, allow me to wrestle and prove myself before anointing me the next coming of Christ.

    Team State Champions

    I think we know it's state finals time, lots of passion on the board. Good luck to all the powerhouse teams, homegrown or not.

    Parade of Champions

    Every wrestler's name is announced, with their school and they walk around the mats until all wrestlers have been announced. It's alpha by school. Usually takes 30-45 minutes. It's nice that all kids get recognized.

    4 seed upsets

    Amen! I'm a fan again ;D

    4 seed upsets

    Ma'am, respectfully I'd like to point out that your son is an excellent wrestler and someone I've said I think will do well in his high school career. The anger you are projecting is misplaced, if you are looking to point a finger, please look in the direction of two Hobart coaches. Any target placed on your son's back was done so by his coach, who felt the need to "get his name out there" and "talk up his wrestlers". As I've stated in previous posts, your son impressed me at the Harvest Classic, but I then find myself rooting against him because of what adults (and I'm using that loosely) post on a message board. Is that right, no it's not, but I can tell you that I found myself again rooting for him at the semi-state because he has an exciting style, only to have his coaches turn me off again with their foolish statements. I'm sorry you are angry, but perhaps a talk with two other people is necessary. Have a safe trip to Indy and best of luck to your son.

    IndyStar State Preview Article

    They covered the Triicoff, The Harvest Classic, the Lake County Tournament, several Illinois tournaments, and the two local conference tournaments. Are you looking for them to cover a dual? The paper does a good job of covering a sport that only a small few are passionate about.

    IndyStar State Preview Article

    You have to read past page 1 of the paper, in the past week they've had a nice write-up about Gelen and Tristan Dembowski. Prior to that they had a long write-up about Tolin, and have done a decent job of covering all of the regionals, and the semi-state. Let's just be fair to the paper, wrestling is not a glamorous sport to the masses. Just remembered they had a lengthy write-up about Yanez prior to the regional. I'd say that's pretty good coverage.
