  1. Sorry I’m just a passionate parent who doesn’t want kids put down on a public forum...BTW If you read my earlier post...assessing a penalty does not have anything to do with intentional or not...One can unintentionally break rules and can still be assessed a penalty point. Either way Brewer didn’t deserve the boos! Ive seen matches where kids do illegal intentional stuff (they usually get DQ’d) I don’t know how old Brewer is and I doubt you do either...he may be a young senior, don’t know but obviously he is eligible to compete so it really doesn’t matter...either way still in high schoo
  2. Actually a Penalty has nothing to do with intentional or not...only with whether an alleged violation occurred...I could attempt to put a hand on the head an unintentionally touch face or eyes and be penalized...BTW I’m perfectly chill and enjoy life just fine thanks. Just find it weak and classless to put down kids!
  3. Wow!!! Gasman needs to quit smelling the fumes... I guess your a mind reader who can tell the difference between an intentional action vs fast paced action...I see you can also diagnose a concussion and broken nose from the stands! Wrestling is a fast paced contact sport,unfortunately unintentional headbutts happen...and intentional headbutts or other illegal action get dealt with proper use of the rules! Last time I checked a Point was awarded, so some people need to grow up and quit being sore losers...that match could probably be wrestled over multiple times with same result, best kid won!
  4. State should have wrestle backs! The upsets and high drama are a lot of fun, but crazy how hard it is to reach our State finals and not have double elimination...
  5. Its 2018... far from the dark ages, can we not find the ability to put individual results in the dual scores. If your not gonna put the results in why put the score down at all, this isnt basketball...wrestling is an individual sport and our state champs are based on individual results! For those that do please disregard this, we appreciate what you do, just frustrated that in an era where drones are in combat, and phones operate off of speaking and facial recognition, and cars can drive on their own, this simple task is only done 50% of the time. P.S. Doesn't everybody use some type of
  6. In college you don’t see them shake hands until after the matches are done...Nobody seems to mind it at that level...not really a respect issue if the whole team does it, and CP is not the only team in the state that does it that way.
  7. Great topic! Very good points Mr. Allred. My two cents on the subject is although Im a fan of the "all around athlete", competing in whatever sport they can, (esp. in high school where those opportunities still exist), its a tough decision that ultimately should be made by the student athlete. My oldest played multiple sports in high school. (football, soccer, and was a wrestler first and foremost). He did the others for fun, and because he was talented enough to play on the varsity level. I supported his decisions partly so he wouldnt burn out in wrestling (which Ive seen happen) and because
  8. prayers to his family and the Triton community
  9. Sorry for your loss. I lost my father this summer also.Glad you have so many great memories with him. Prayers your way.
  10. Sorry to hear that...great family...sending prayers
  11. Prayers and Godspeed for a fast recovery!
  12. The Traicoff has to be one of the best dual tournaments in the state. Have some top teams from all over the state compete with lots of state finals level matches!
