    JMILL got a reaction from Misty Kendrex in Wrestle Off results?? And numbers??   
    Yes, numbers were low this year as it was tough timing for the wrestle off's being during spring break.  My issue is that when we had them in February people complained it was too early because it was hard for kids to get back to weight in April.  We couldn't hold it in early March because I had no idea until closer to time when we were going to be able to hold Folkstyle state and how many weekends it was going to take so we landed on this date as being the real only choice this year.
     
    With that said it doesn't help that we have lots of people out encouraging other things and discouraging people from wanting to be part of the ISWA National Team trip (I won't go into specifics, but like Spencer Lee says "if you know you know").
     
    Its OK, we have several kids that are getting the great opportunity and will get better and benefit from the trip.
    We do however need the following weights filled for MS team if anyone wants the opportunity and or wants to help get kids out there.
    MS 132,140,195 & HWT (2)
     
    Reach out to me directly if anyone has a lead on kids for these websites and if anyone wants to post fighting responses to my comments above please don't as I have no time for that.

    JMILL reacted to Jopturne in To Logan Miller   
    This is Jared's coach.  I would like to express my respect for Logan and how he handled the loss.  That's a tough loss to swallow, and he stayed composed and professional.  I know it meant a lot to Jared having Logan reach out, congratulate, and wish him luck.  I tell my wrestlers that losing is part of life, and wrestling can be a useful tool in preparing us how to handle and bounce back from our losses.  All of Princeton are proud of you, as well as the state of Indiana.  Approach life in the same way you approached wrestling, and you will succeed.  Good luck, Logan Miller.

    I want to first say thank you to @blueandgold for starting this thread.  I was not sure who you were but have been informed and I have huge amounts of respect for you young man so again thank you for the kind words about Logan.
     
    To everyone else who has commented on here thank you also so very much.  I have been around wrestling for many many years as an athlete, coach, ISWA board member & parent.  I have gotten to know lots and lots of kids and families from all over the state thru the many many years 
    Thru all the years I have known this is a great sport that can have heartbreaking endings and results and equally great un-believable outcomes and accomplishments.
     
    Logan has had a great career in the sport and has achieved things greater than I would have and could have expected for him.  The thing that makes me the happiest of all after everything he has gone thru (especially over the last two years) is how he carried himself after it all came to an end on Saturday.   Mom and I were completely devastated and honestly I could not think or rationalize what to do next, but seeing Logan stand up shake hands and then come back out and sit with his team was un-believable to me.  I talked to him a few times during the rest of the day and while I was teary he assured me he was OK and he was going to be fine just a little disappointed.  
     
    Now to address all the above comments (like I said I have made many friends along the way during my time in the sport) and I thank all of you for your kind words.  Most of you I do not know personally but please seek me out at some point at any ISWA event so I can fist bump you and thank you personally for acknowledging what I know already is that Logan is an awesome & kind young man.
     
    To @Darrick Snyder @mikemorgan what a wild ride its been over 4 years from a state title to a heartbreaking loss and everything in between (thanks to Mike for coming in to help navigate this last run).  You guys have been awesome and amazing and I know I will be friends with you guys forever and love you both.  Thank you for everything.
     
    Lastly to @tiger92 thank you for post and to be honest it does not surprise me that Logan found your son on social media some how and reached out to him to congratulate him and wish him good luck going forward. 
    Unfortunately for me I selected seats in the part of the arena that I had sat in the previous times I had been fortunate enough for Logan to be at Semi-state and did not want to break from tradition even though they were not in the "B-burg section".  This turned out to be right next to the Princeton fan section.  It was tough to be honest, but I did get to see what I think was mom and dad happy and elated for their son Jared Dunn thru the whole day.  To me that is what this sport is all about, as I was devastated they were elated and I honestly could not be mad about that.   I hope your son enjoys this experience and has the time of his life.  Its a great event being at the state finals and I know he will soak it all in and have great life experiences and take a ways.  I hope he makes a deep run and can achieve all he wants and dreams about.
     
    To all other kids competing this weekend best of luck, stay safe & healthy and accomplish your dreams and enjoy the moments, soak it all in and never have regrets.
