    Perseverance got a reaction from IU89 in USA vs PA State Champs “Pittsburgh Classic”   
    What’s so ironic about you asking that.....is that I asked the tourney director the same thing! Lol 
     
    He also chuckled, but specified it’s strictly dual format.  Unfortunately of course.  Would’ve loved for Silas to get an opportunity at both Garcia & Stout in the same weekend! That said.....Garcia is a match we’ve wanted for over a year.  It’ll be a great challenge.  Big strong bruiser who likes physicality.  He’s playing football for Michigan as well.  We feel Silas will be a tough match-up for him though.  Silas’ ability to handfight well by high school standards, coupled with his variation of no tie offense, creates tough preparation for competitors.  Really looking forward to the challenge.
     
    But that said......he’ll stay zoned in for the time being, treating every match of State Series equally.  Nobody will be overlooked, or taken lightly.

    Silas Allred has been chosen to represent the Team USA All-Stars at the “Rose Bowl of Wrestling”.....The Pittsburgh Classic.  An all senior event for 50+ years, Silas will represent the 195lbs weight class. The event will take place March 14th, at Fitzgerald Fieldhouse on the University of Pittsburgh campus.  The dual meet will not have the 106-113-or heavyweight division.  Rather....it will be 120-220, and have 2 matches at 138 & 195.  Silas (#2 via Flo) will be squaring off against PA State Champ and Michigan commit Gage Garcia #3.
    Tremendous honor for Silas to be selected and represent Shenandoah High School, CIA Wrestling, Indiana Wrestling, as well as his future Nebraska Cornhuskers at this prestigious event.

    Levitz & Fielden are strong selections as possibles.  I personally feel a healthy Mason Winner has a realistic shot. Walker being a heavy favorite, and not counting out any other top 182’s, but I think Winner wants to prove something.
     
    Another intriguing kid is Cale Gray at 220.  His strength, athleticism, yet ability to wrestle small.....will prove formidable against anyone in that weight class.  I feel this kid is a little slept on despite his strong state ranking.

    And Silas is the same age as a junior and only lost once as a 13 or 14 year old freshman 170 pounder beating state placers..So realistically he could be going for his 2nd state title as a Jr. And def could've been a potential 3xer with his talent.. Nothing against anybody but he's on another level than everybody at 195 and beyond and is up there with mendez p4p great guys in state and among other all time greats.. Also with his work in the classroom and support he gets from many ppl especially his father, there's no limit how good he can be... Big 10 bound with  world class aspirations!

    FCFIGHTER170 brings up a good point. Let's see what the Mendez effect looks like vs the Alred effect:
     
    126 = 15 state placements and 5 state qualifiers
    132 = 3 state placements and 10 state qualifiers 
    138 = 8 state placements and 5 state qualifiers 
      182 = 8 state placers and 4 state qualifiers
    195 = 2 state placers and 2 state qualifiers

    @UncleJimmy hit on a lot of great points. There are so many factors that come into play once a wrestler moves to the next level not just from Indiana but everywhere!  You will watch guys that didn't win state titles become all-americans and guys that won mutiple-state titles not make it through their first year or two.
     
    One of the biggest is getting use to there never being any easy days. Most top level guys dominate their room in high school. Once you enter college, especially at the D1 level, you are no longer the alpha and even days you go against walk ons are going to be tough.  This becomes mentally taxing and you struggle with confidence issues almost daily!
     
    Relationships with coaches and wrestlers play a part as well. Maybe you don't mesh well with the coaches or the guys on the team. They are partiers and you're not. Another thing I have personally observed is guys fitting in right away and with all the new found freedom don't know how to balance partying, athletics, and school. We'd like to think that these kids can make the right choices but learning how to deal with that freedom can be really difficult! It doesn't make them bad kids it's just the reality.
     
    I was only a walk on at IU. The highlight of my career was being booed at rec hall for stalling and not giving up a major against Pat Cummins when I was thrown in at heavyweight.  It was/is still the hardest 4 years of my life physically, mentally and academically.  In fact I tried to come home after my first semester and my dad wouldn't let me!  It never got easier but it just became the new normal.
     
    I agree with others that this is a good time for Indiana wrestling and we have a lot of talent at many levels.

    This is an intriguing thread and one I’ve pondered as well with a kid in college and seeing a lot of IN dudes all over. 
     
    This is just personal opinion and speculation..
     
    A lot of these guys have been at it a long time and have attained a high level of success. College isn’t so easy. Almost every match is semi state level or better against teams and opponents you/they might not expect. If u take a couple losses you start to doubt yourself..and when you start to doubt you also start to question everything..is the time worth it? Is it as important as it was? Is my passion still there? 
     
    Another big factor in my opinion is coaching. Not if the college coach is good or bad but just different! Most of these kids have had the same coach and achieved success with the same academy or high school coach in their corner for anywhere from 4-10 years!! Suddenly you have someone totally new..and different in approach/style/personality. So if you factor that in along with the less success or questions of themselves that also plays a role in the mental game. 
     
    Lastly, but just as important, injury!! With every match seemingly semi state level or greater, the wear and tear on the body is increased and as the young body ages it also changes and doesn’t heal like it used to! 
     
    Im proud of all the IN dudes I see grinding it out at all collegiate levels. It ain’t easy and it is vastly different in college. 
     
    Thanks @blueandgold for raising the issue. Heck, it’s different as a parent so I can only imagine how these athletes feel!!
