  1. Hall of fame coach Bob Read was honored as he coached his final home dual after 40 plus years at Plymouth high school. It was a special night watching past wrestlers come from literally all over the country to honor him. Coach hates any attention on himself but this was well deserving. I’ve known this man over 40 years and I can honestly say I’ve never met a man with more class, ethics and integrity in my life. The video tribute showed countless former wrestlers share how they have become the husbands, fathers and men they are because of the time and care coach poured into their lives. He’s had numerous state qualifiers, placers and champions but the mentoring he has poured into people is what last. I’ve never met a man who hates to lose and loves to win more but it’s the lessons in life that leaves the greatest marks on his wrestlers. He is a man that is driven by his faith, his family and simply pouring into young men’s lives. I felt like I was peeling an onion all night! Thank you coach Read for all you’ve done in this great sport in Plymouth and in Indiana. Well deserved.
  2. I agree wholeheartedly. We truly are blessed in Indiana to have this as a way not only to share personal “feelings” etc but it definately is helping build wrestling in Indiana. Joe and Mike and the “others” thank you very much. Your efforts and what you do are noticed.👍
  3. When you look at the number of wrestlers from those states competing compared to Indiana that says a lot. They put a lot of stock in Fargo and super 32
  4. Wanted to see if anyone can help clarify what is the criteria that dictates what schools go to what semi state. For example some schools that go to Fort Wayne are closer to East Chicago and vice versa. Is it based strictly on numbers? Thanks
  5. Great wrestling, a lot of out of state talent, great officiating. Kudos to Joe for running another great tournament. Will be hard pressed to find a better ran national caliber tournament like Joe runs. I’m just sad it was our last one👍
  6. Some of these comments are comical! I know both wrestlers well. Carson and Jake are both great wrestlers, great kids and the sky is the limit for both. Instead of being on the sidelines or on here talking about how one is so much better...let’s just say they are both great and enjoy a great match! Looking forward to seeing two of Indiana’s best go at it. Only sad point is it’s on a Friday night
  7. Once you’ve wrestled or coached or personally been to state finals you would be disappointed anywhere else. Nothing like Indiana wrestling at state tournament in the country. Hope we never Do what basketball did. Indiana wrestling is turning into a national power!
  8. Thanks joe and mike for making Indiana wrestling exciting! Great job
  9. Congrats my friend! So much respect for you and your family. Your an awesome wrestler but your faith, respect and character is what makes you such an amazing young man. I have enjoyed so much getting to watch you and get to know you on the national trips and teams. You will do fantastic. Congrats again👍
  10. Jordan is such a great kid. I get a kick out of people saying he doesn’t score enough points. He does what he’s supposed to do. He scores enough to get his hand raised most the time. We’ve known him for many years and the cool thing is he’s even a better person than he is a wrestler. Graham loves being around him and thankful they have got to wrestle on many teams together.
  11. Let me first say I in no way am putting down anybody in particular or acting like I’m the role model cause I’m the furthest from perfect, but I really think coaches need to take a step back and look in the mirror and realize our wrestlers watch our lives more than they listen to our words. I’ve been blessed at Plymouth to coach with coaches that in many years have impacted hundreds of lives. I’ve never heard a foul word out of their mouth nor is any wrestler aloud to use profanity. Their goal is always create young men of integrity first and champions in life then champions on the mat. I’m amazed when I see and hear coaches and athletes cuss back and forth.....see wrestlers yell at refs.....throw things in anger and nothing is done. On a positive I’ve watched people I respect and look up to like coach Snyder get in wrestlers faces yet put his arm around them and build them up....coach Harper from little kids to high schoolers speak life into his kids yet in their face. I don’t know a man in the world that loves winning more than coach Read or a man that hates to lose more than him but you ask anyone that’s gone through his program in 30 plus years and you will hear nothing but the utmost respect because of the integrity he walks in. Coaches your integrity is the most 8mportant part of your job with the kids we have in front of us. Impact lives. As our coach always says....”Do the right thing simply because it’s the right thing to do”. Your reputation is what others think of you but your character is what people see and you really are. It’s time coaches we lead from the front!
  12. Want wish all of you coaches a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! Hope you all are able to relax and enjoy your families. Good luck on your second half of the year. Blessings👍
  13. Great job all the Indiana guys. We tried catching all the matches. I guess 8 don’t understand how it’s ran. We beat the champion and beat th3 kid 11-2 who beat the kid who got third. Finished 3-1 and finished 9th. Doesn’t matter I guess. We wen5 to wrestle some nationally ranked kids and get better. Great event
