  1. When I saw this i immediately thought of Sa'Derian Perry...the 141 pounder who will finish up his career having seen the demise of two D1 programs along with Eastern Michigan.
  2. What an incredible honor for both to be collegiate AAs. Congrats fellas.
  3. Wheeler IS a small town tucked in between Portage on the North, Hobart on the West, Valpo on the East, Boone Grove to the South. It's quite small, runs along IN 130. They definitely subsidize their enrollment with Valparaiso residents, my uncle lived a couple miles south of 30 and his kids went to Wheeler.
  4. Steenbeke will give Perry everything he can handle. I know that record is unimpressive but the kid is wrestling well right now for a frosh especially. He pinned his first three opponents in under 3 minutes each time at semistate before giving Hollendonner everything he could handle in losing 3-2. I was impressed after someone had mentioned his first round opponent as a likely upset over him. As Lee Corso says...not so fast my friend!
  5. Alrad? C'mon guys for a kid this special mind your spelling. It's Allred. Cole Solomey vs Jett Boots at 120 should be a heckuva match. Solomey has had a great year having stayed under the radar being in the same sectional with a pair of proven seniors in Bettich and Diaz. Now he may be on the podium.
  6. Awesome win for the Clark Pioneers who will consolidate I believe in 2021 along with Gavit into Hammond High/Morton. Nice win for Solomey at 120 over Fogarty. He will wrestle for 3rd after dropping the semi to Bettich.
  7. Attica has a really nice little team for the sub 300 student Fountain County high school, with 5 qualifiers that include a couple hammers in Hargan and Douglass. However the draw certainly didn't do this crew favors, though Douglass it could be said had a relatively favorable draw in one of the weaker weights. I haven't got to see Hargan wrestle but regardless of the schedule it takes some skills to arrive undefeated in SS. But drawing Pack in the bloodround will certainly mean if he makes it to state he definitely earned it. Miller at 106 is the lone senior in the group and has a pair of 2nd
  8. 170 EC Sneed vs Calhoun 120 EC Solomey vs Fogarty
  9. I thought Crown Point certainly wrestled well as a whole but unsurprisingly at 120 Gio Diaz knocks off Riley Bettich for the second week in a row by a 4-2 score after fighting off a game Cole Solomey 4-1 in the semifinals. Solomey would take 3rd for the second week in a row. Look for Bettich and Solomey to cause headaches for the blood round at EC. I could see all three heading to Indy. Ty Haskins (26-6) of Portage won Hobart at 120, Brodie Fogarty (29-6) of Mishawaka wins Penn, and Sam Hein (36-1) of Harrison WL wins Logansport... so if Hein pulls Bettich in the blood round that would be a cr
  10. Previous Hosts last year - Minnesota year before - Michigan State etc. - Indiana Iowa Ohio State Wisconsin Illinois Purdue Northwestern Michigan Penn State Minnesota So it would seem Nebraska then Maryland likely before Penn State again but then again Minnesota snuck in there and I'm sure Ohio State wants to show off their new facilities.
  11. If you have direcTV and you hit the info button to bring up the left side menu at the bottom it has am option called "team pages" and if aselect it, it brings you to a screen where it shows "Wrestling" and it searches for all collegiate matches. January and February are clearly prime months with the ACC Network, Big 10, and ESPN2 being the only programming homes at the moment. But seeing even the ACC dip into this market is cool, and the big 12 gets some time with Oklahoma State/Oklahoma both getting some air on ESPN. I believe Oklahoma battles Northern Iowa on ESPN 2 this weekend, and I hope
  12. Tough break for one half of the standout frosh Solomey boys of KV, but I'd say that match will take place anyway for third place as it doesn't really matter who is seeded where with two hammers on the bookends in Diaz and Bettich of the semifinals and I think Solomey will handle his Hebron opponent who has a decent record but also a frosh. With Cortez, Bettich, and Diaz all being seniors this weight class will be prime for one of those brothers to slide into the favorite perch. Love Aiden Sneed's chances at 170 cruise and Celorio at 182 has a fair shot for KV to take home a title. JOnkman a
  13. I know Eastern Michigan is hurting financially and had to make a cut, albeit a silly one considering the low end cost of wrestling in terms of all sports. Hard for me to understand why Toledo, Bowling Green, and Western Michigan don't revive with all the talent in the Midwest. Ball State...come on boys Worthen Arena would be a great venue.
  14. Hopefully FSN Indiana will expand their coverage in light of the ever increasing attendance and participation numbers...i understand covering the entire state championship would probably be a bit much to ask but expanding the coverage to increase at least the semifinals would be desirable. With the blind draw we often have some incredible matches when it comes down to the final four and as mentioned that type of draw often leads to some imbalanced brackets. I felt like we missed out with semis like @ 126 with Watts v Mendez, Rioux v Curtis...the implications of having a chance to be in the pr
  15. If i would have pulled out a sandwich like that before my match you can believe my old wrestling coach Walt Prochno would have had me eating sandwiches the next monday followed by copious amounts of stair laps whilst I yack in the trusty Rubbermaid located conveniently at the base of the concrete stairs near mezzanine entrance.
  16. Probably the deciding factor...'stache envy.
  17. Boos are part of the spectacle. What did you expect from the Donahue camp? A ho-hum? It was an unfortunate start to the match, but I also don't believe it was malicious...but it did change the dynamics of the bout.
  18. Take a drive around Crown Point and you will see the heavy investment the community has made in youth sports, it really is the class of the region in that regard.
  19. There were several great championship matches aired on FSN Indiana...but the 220 weight class was so satisfying for this region rat. I'm sure Aiken is a good kid but honestly that little injury timeout maneuver was a bit bush league, but clearly within the confines of the rules. He clearly wasn't suffering from any ailment aside from lactic acid build-up. I thought it was poetic justice that Fowler returned from that timeout a new man and on the strength of a sweet freight train blast double he threw Aiken to his back and won the whole darn thing for Coach Wadkins and Black Oak nation! Respect
  20. Ray Rioux of Avon wrestling insanely well right now, thought his 3-1 win over Curtis was enormous. Tall task in Mendez, wonder if he can shock the state. 132 has 4 great semifinalists. Shame the semifinals aren't on FSN Indiana
  21. 220 is full of tough friday night draws, Cornwell/Kidwell and Irick/Bailey are a couple death draws for sure.
  22. Yeah this is always one of my favorite events of the year, been attending the Merrillville/EC semi-state for the past 20 years since my brother lost in the blood round his senior year...up until the last couple because of my injury that has kept me from attending. I really appreciate the coverage you do @ontherise219 on local wrestling it is always first class work.
  23. Top 4 in order... 106 - Right off the bat you get an intriguing 4 v 1 matchup here and I think Bailey of River Forest will give Dominic Skees everything he can handle. And no slight to their potential blood round matchup but the winner of that match will be favored over the 2 v 3 matchup between a pair of unranked wrestlers. Cernus and Roberson are on the other side of the bracket in what would be a semifinal. Malik Hall is probably my 4th. Give me Cernus, Hall, Roberson, Bailey. 113 - Man you have to feel for senior Colin Reagan of Frontier, who has a devastatingly tough road to state
  24. Obviously it wasn't murderers row at Bloomington South @ 132, but a shoutout to unranked super frosh Ian Giesler (28-5) of Jasper who won the title comfortably over Gabriel Recknor (29-8) of Terre Haute South by a 12-2 major decision. He faces a tall task however in a potential blood round matchup with Drake Campbell (33-8) of Brownsburg. Kind of an under the radar match-up in which Campbell will be noticeably favored but could have his hands full.
  25. Aiden Sneed of Kankakee Valley had a great day at 170. Sneed suffered a couple tough losses to end the regular season and fell out of the SS rankings. However he has been perfect in the postseason and improved his record to 31-5 after rolling up a couple pins and then knocking off state #16/ SS #4 Colin Kwiatkowski by decision 10-6. Sneed is just a sophomore, so the future is bright for this young wrestler. No KV wrestler has ever placed higher than 6th at state, but to get there expect the blood round at SS for 170 to be chock full of epic bouts. The top four from this class in the SS ranking
