    Perseverance got a reaction from backtothemat in Impact freshman   
    Have to admit......I entertained the idea with Silas.  But ultimately.....had I done so, I would’ve outwardly been setting an example of athletics overriding academics.  And that’s a major breach of the Allred’s household priority line.
    Being fully transparent.....Regardless of my sons success through relentless hard work, I still frequently think on the “what if’s”.  He could legit be a sophomore right now and not such a young junior.  Increased accolades in-state and Nationally would undoubtedly be attained.  But ultimately....if athletics isn’t the back up plan to education/career, we’re setting our kids up for misaligned values.  Make no mistake.....Silas plans to take the sport as far as his health, work ethic and God allows.  But one reality we’ve embraced.....is that the events of tomorrow can never be fully predicted.  And in retrospect......being young for his class and having to work harder to compensate for the age gap, has likely benefited his long term success and character much more than any medal could.  And rest assured, as it pertains to the topic of age/success/recruiting......programs are very aware of an athletes age/projection. So in most instances.....being young and successful is even more appealing to recruiters.  And that “success” I refer to here.....goes far beyond what an athlete accomplishes in their particular sport.  Character & Classroom has to come first.

    In speaking with my son Silas about the head but......he made a great point.  Mind you, Silas knows Carson well and they’ve travelled together competing on the same squad numerous times.  Silas’ perspective.....
    ”Dad.....Carson likes to establish head position.  Even if he’s got wrist control or in the tie, he looks to position his head.  If I’m trying to do the same thing.....and I head but a kid, the slow motion video will undoubtedly make it look intentional.  It’s like in baseball, if a pitcher accidentally hits a batter.  When they show it in slow motion, to the naked eye it could appear that he threw it right at the guy.  When actually.....he just missed his spot.”
    I think Carson deserves a lot of credit for psychologically staying strong.  Getting thrown Laplace on Fri after last years issue with Mahan.....put his mental toughness to the test immediately. And the young man passed with flying colors.

    Really tough choice for you guys this year.  Multiple guys are deserving.  Being a 3 timer, it’s hard not to lock in Asa.  However.....What Slivka has done the last 2 years is pretty special.  Coming into the finals as the clear underdog, very few expecting him to win, facing higher touted nationally ranked foes.......and remaining cooler than polar bear toenails.  The young man embodies consistency.

    Sounds more to me like you’re probably unaware of the process.  Matches are paired using a formula between the 4 Regionals and their placements.  I realize at times it may seem like certain kids receive better draws than others.....and honestly, they have.  But it’s not because there is someone overseeing matters that ensures certain kids get an easier path, while others get the hard road.  That’s why working hard and trying to secure a #1 seed is so important.
    I noticed you had just joined the site a couple weeks ago.  So my response to you is based on helping you better understand the process a bit.  And giving you the benefit of the doubt, that you’re not trying to create strife with a rival school.  Because I can attest to the fact that the individuals I personally know from SD......spill their guts year round to be the best version of themselves possible, and deserve all the success and good fortune that comes their way.
    Hope this gives you some clarity.

    Perseverance reacted to Dingo Brigade in 2019 New Castle semistate preview and predictions   
    ****This article is the hard work of a central Indiana coach who would prefer not to reveal his or her identity 
    It might be one of the toughest overall Semi State’s I have ever seen with an average of nearly 6 ranked wrestlers in every weight class.  In almost every quarter-bracket a State ranked or Semi State ranked opponent will be having their seasons ended prematurely. Further, the IHSAA Team Title very well may come down to the first two rounds of the New Castle Semi State with 7 potential matchups between Cathedral and Warren Central. The semistate also features the highest nationally ranked wrestler in Indiana in Silas Allred of Shenandoah.

    Potential Matchups 
    #9 Elijah Anthony vs #8ss Isaiah Otto First Round with #10 Logan Carrender looming in the ticket round.  Anthony entered his freshman campaign undefeated going into sectionals losing to #4 Chundi twice headed into Semi state.  Carrender is red hot after winning the Pendleton Regional. 
    #7 Carleton Perry vs #7ss Evan Dickey Cathedral first round with #18 Sam Crousore looking to be the first 4 over 1 of the tournament.  Perry pinned Dickey earlier in the year, but Cathedral is known for stepping up their game come tournament time.  Will Dickey be 2019 Andrew Wilson/Elliot Rodgers?He is one of the smaller 106s I've seen in a long time, but his technique is picture perfect.  
    #4 Suhas Chundi versus #15 Kody Glithero in the ticket round.  Chundi has a 5-2 win earlier in the season but Roncalli is riding high after 6 champs at the brutal Perry Meridian Regional.  At least 3 ranked guys going home early here.

    #3 David Pierson vs #18 Antonio Jefferson.  A rematch from the Marion County finals in the ticket round.  It was a very tight match until the third period when Pierson got on top and secured the win.

Hadley did what he needed to advance at the Pendleton regional, but he'll need to bring his A game to get to the Ticket round this year.
    #8ss Galbraith, #7ss Moseley and Nick Morton will all bang it out to try and earn a spot at Bankers Life.  These kids could wrestle 10 different times with a different winner each time.

    #7ss Slivka vs Jared Brown should be good.  Brown had Mattingly dead in the water last year in the ticket round and got pinned while winning by double digits.  Don’t expect him to go down easily after beating Walendzak last week. 
    #9 Wilkerson vs #11 Ross in a rematch from North Montgomery Holiday Classic.  Ross got the fall in their dual in December.  Should be a good one.

    #13 Johnson vs #2 Viduya Semis with #5 Bailey in finals.  If it is Viduya in the finals against Bailey it will be a rematch from a January dual where Viduya won 9-2.  Don’t expect the margin to be that high again as Bailey will be prepared for the rematch.

    #12 Jarred Rowlett vs #16 Andrew Wilson.  Two returning IHSAA State Qualifiers a year ago battle it out in the first round.  Rowlett came out on top in a decision back in December and looks to end his career on the floor of Bankers life.  Wilson is looking for that magic he found a year ago to help his team win another team title. 
    #5 Phillips vs #12 Rowlett/#16 Wilson Ticket Round.  No rest for either returning qualifier with undefeated Phillips waiting in the wings.  A SSQ a year ago before injury ended his season is looking to punch his first ticket over someone looking for their second ticket.

    #18 Hayden Lohrey Shenandoah
     
    Semi-State Ranked Wrestlers
    #7 Andrew Roth Lawrenceburg
    #8 Garrett Sharp Carmel
     
    Potential Matchups 
    Rebein vs #14 Harrington vs Lowe.  An interesting group where 4 of the total 12 losses come from #10 Aaron Taylor.  Rebein is a hammer on top with his wing and could surprise both of the ranked wrestlers here. 
    #2 Slivka vs #10 Taylor.  Another Cathedral and Warren matchup.  Taylor has had an up and down year winning the Marion County tournament but definitely has the attributes to pull the upset.  Slivka is, of course, a monster...
    Winner gets #9 Hiner who has a win over Taylor at the John Hurrle.  Two top 10 wrestlers seasons will end in this quarter bracket alone. 
    #2 vs #3 in the semis with Slivka and Davis

    #17 Drake Kendrex Mount Vernon 
    #20 Tyler Wagner Cathedral
     
     
    Potential Matchups 
    #11 Saez vs #20 Wagner.  Wagner has had a very strong season even if it was done quietly with his #20 ranking.  He has several very good wins and will be looking to help his team win a IHSAA state title. 
    #3 Mahan vs # 17 Kendrex.  A lot of tough draws for Mount Vernon with Kendrex doing battle with returning medalist Mahan for a ticket to state.
     #8 Coffman vs #13 Lowe.  The second of the medalists battling another ranked opponent for a spot at the bank with Coffman being the returning 4th place finisher.
    #3 Klettheimer vs #10 Hart.  Hart dropping down from 182 a year ago versus the returning 7th place finisher in Kleittheimer.

    #8 Bacon vs #19 Moore in a rematch of the MIC finals first round 
    #8 Bacon vs #12 Morgan Semis with Bacon down a weight class from a year ago and Morgan trying to make it a round further and be on the podium at the Bank. This should be a good one.

    Potential Matchups 
    #15 Heldt vs #9 Roudebush ticket round.  One of these seniors will be staying home next weekend when the other could very easily be on the podium. Roudebush is some kind of athlete. Winner will see #12 Austin Lane in the semis. 
    All eyes will be on the Cornhusker commit #1 Silas Allred, a prohibitive favorite.

    #6 Cade Campbell PH
    #7 Carlos Mitchell WC
     
    Potential Matchups 
    #4 Cornwell vs #16 Van Beynen ticket round.  The Carmel phenom will have his hands full with Cornwell looking to finish #1 after losing his ranking at the North Mont Holiday Classic. Cornwell is ranked nationally in some publications.
    #7ss Mitchell vs #20 Guhl.  In Mitchell's first tournament after winning a 6A IHSAA Football Title, he took losses to both Guhl and Williams of Avon.  He avenged the Williams loss and is looking to help knock another Cathedral contender out of the series.  
    Winner has the privilege of wrestling #3 Irick who took a rubber match loss to #8 Webster.  Irick comes from a long line of bad men from HSE, and is ranked nationally. 
    #8 Webster vs #15 Young/Brown.  Young is very athletic and has gone back and forth with Mitchell from Warren.  He is also the Marion County Champion and is looking to punch a ticket to state.  Brown is no slouch and just beat #20 Guhl last week and Mitchell at the MIC. 
    Browning/Burton/#6ss Campbell is an interesting quarter bracket where anyone can come out with the golden ticket.

    Potential matchups: 
    #10 Harris vs #7ss McQueen
    #17 Kunkelman vs #12 Alexander.  A tough draw with Kunkelman getting third each week at sectionals and regionals against a tough FC Alexander who finds a way to win.
    #9 Hubbard vs #6ss Williams.  A MIC rematch of an earlier contest where Hubbard got an early fall.  Look for the Greyhound to try and take this match back.
    Winner gets #1 Watts in the ticket round.  Hubbard lost a 1-0 match to Watts at the Marion County.  A top 10 kid will be watching state rather than wrestling.
