    An Idea to Think About.

    I'm only chiming in because you're talking about the school where I coached... Fishers High School is difficult to compare because of it's relatively short history. It began as a high school in 2006. Our first 2 years were rough without seniors and only a couple of experienced wrestlers. Building a program is also difficult without any alumni, especially ones who are parents helping with the youth program. But we did have success before, during, and after Mitch: 2007 - x 2008 - x 2009 - Brad Farrell 5th, Patrick Lux SQ 2010 - Mitch 3rd 2011 - Mitch 3rd 2012 - Mitch 1st, Jordan Lile SQ 2013 - Mitch 1st, Seth Riley 4th, Jordan Lile SQ 2014 - Jordan Lile 8th (with torn ACL), Lance Syverson SQ 2015 - Alexander Strueder SQ, Mason Gaines SQ 2016 - x (new head coach) 2017 - x 2018 - Alexander Strueder SQ (new head coach) 2019 - TBD (another new head coach) So probably the bigger factor in the lack of sustained success following Mich was the coaching turnover (4 different head coaches in the last 5 years). I guess that's my fault.

    Most Indiana Triple Crowns?

    That's probably enough for light weights. But for many mid to upper weights it is more necessary to be well prepared for other attacks in situations where shots don't work.

    There are too many coaches discouraging it. I built a week of Greco into the high school season because one of the HCC teams used to love to throw and we had to know how to stop them. That's before your time, so I'm feeling old now.

    I'm still hanging around. (If you meant Grecoref, I still miss him too.) The benefits of Greco are outstanding. Unfortunately, not enough coaches fully understand the style and those benefits. And even worse are the coaches who actively discourage it. I don't think Greco is for beginner wrestlers, but training & competing at the regional, national, or international levels can take a good wrestler and make him/her much better with hand fighting, positioning, hip use, defense, etc. along with simply being more comfortable when an opponent ties up upperbody. Mid-upper weight wrestlers planning on competing in college should get some Greco experience because there is so much upper body positioning required at the next level. I like the triple crown award because it shows excellence in all 3 styles and a well rounded wrestler. And even if college coaches don't actively recruit Greco wrestlers, they do notice guys who do all styles.
  10. I envision the kid's parents saying something like "He is special so I don't want him treated like everyone else, but at the same time, he shouldn't be singled out so treat him like everyone else." This is one of these new-age coaching nightmares. In hindsight, the best solution would have been for the coach to have a private meeting with the kid and parents to discuss every potential situation and the best way to handle them. I'm just confused how he was "outed" when a couple years ago "he" was a "she"? Sounds like a civil liberties group or just MSM used that wording to escalate the story.

    Which state does it best?

    The RCA Dome would be way too cold in February (since it is a parking lot now) Lucas Oil Stadium would have to give the IHSAA a great deal/discount to use it affordably.

    NFHS Survey--Please get this in ASAP

    If the survey is from the NFHS, then it's national, not state.

    How about those wrestlebacks?

    The 2nd round of semistate is still flawed. That is where (without an upset) a top 4 wrestler can be eliminated.

    How about those wrestlebacks?

    A Sectional or Regional champ who loses first round was beaten by someone who has lost twice and was 4th best at their Sectional/Regional. That automatically puts him behind 4 others, so a 2nd loss isn't necessary. The IHSAA has no sympathy for upsets.
