  1. I don't think any of the True Freshmen are on the roster yet.
  2. If you are in the NW Indiana area this Sunday, take a drive out and watch some great freestyle wrestling! It was at this tournament a couple of years ago where Wisconsin's Beau Breske was defeated by Indiana's Blake Rypel in the best freestyle match I've ever seen. (I believe the score was 23-22?). Martinez Fox Valley Elite (MFVE) has 4 Indiana kids on their team. (Carlos Champagne, Jake Tucker, Jose Champagne, and Drew Hughes) From the Tournament Director: IL Freestyle Club Cup- THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 17TH This Sunday, Downers Grove South will host the 7th Annual IL Freestyle Club Cup. Th
  3. Region Wrestling Academy has continued to get better and better, the coaches are SUPREME. The rooms (little tykes, middle schoolers, and High Schoolers) are stacked with talent. Congratulations!
  4. I predicted 6-0 Decision, Drew winning of course, when I texted his Dad. I also knew he'd flatten Clingenpeel, the Semi's was the title match IMO and it was NO match. Way to go, Drew! 4 or 5 runner-ups out in Iowa over the years and he broke through with a BANG!! That was Sweet!
  5. Illinois' Jack Jessen 2x Fargo Runner-up vs. Drew (Hughes) is a match-up of Top 20 Nationally Ranked wrestlers this morning in the Semi's out in Iowa. Jessen was at 182lbs for the HS Season, how he made 170 is beyond me? He's a big 182lber! Go Drew! Go RWA! Go Green!
  6. It was requested of me to copy/paste this to your forum: From: PapaBearSlim Mr. Tucker feel free post this over there. Who knows if he would have gone undefeated if say he attended a IL 3A school with a national schedule. There are so many land mines along the way over a 4 year stretch and so many highly regarded studs that were unable to accomplish this feat in IL that it's easy to see why IL folks would be quick to say it wouldn't happen. That's not a knock on Indiana, Red or minimizing his accomplishment. You could be the best in the country and still lose on any given day (bad call
  7. Thank you! We have been blessed, we are grateful for Jake's success and all of the lessons that he's learned throughout his HS career. We are looking forward to the future.
  8. It's a family decision, IMO. Others will have their opinions either way but it all comes down to the wrestler's decision. In Jake's case, he made the decision himself. He shadowed at MC and it's an hour up to Chicago from Lowell so his school days for 4yrs have been: up at 5:15am (up at 4:45am on morning practice days) and back home at 8pm at night, every night. I assumed and totally expected him to say "thanks but no thanks" after his shadow day. I made him go through a typical day of getting up early and coming home late, etc. so he would know what it was going to be like for 4yrs. I figured
  9. Jose and Jake made history by becoming the first Indiana residents to win an IHSA-Illinois High School State Wrestling title. (Jose placed 3rd in 2A last year, Jake placed 5th in 3A as a Soph two years ago...these were also first time feats). These Indiana boys fared pretty well in Illinois. Great job! Carlos is super talented, I can't wait to watch him in the future. Jake is excited to join his longtime club/middle school teammate--Drew Hughes at Michigan State. Exciting times ahead!
  10. Your son is in great hands! Coach P is one the best coaches I've seen in my 40 years of being around the sport as an athlete, coach, and parent. He not only focuses on wrestling but on valuable life lessons as well.
  11. Great win for Coach P and the team! There is something of note here: Washington was missing 3-4 starters, three of which are highly ranked in the state and 2 of which are ranked NATIONALLY in Keeley and Meneweather and Carmel won those 2 weight classes plus another FF by Washington at 126lbs. You can't blame Carmel for missing wrestlers however so Kudos on the win!
  12. BRice is way down this year, H. Johnson is it for them. Team-wise, they are not in the Top 35 rankings for IL 3A. If Blanco, Rudy Yates and others would have stayed, they would have provided a major punch but as it is, Rice's team is depleted.
  13. Congratulations to Lowell's Drew Hughes on his verbal commitment to the Spartans of Michigan State. Drew has worked very hard since the age of 5 to be one of the best in the country, he's certainly done that. Now he joins New Head Coach Roger Chandler next year to start a new chapter in Michigan State Wrestling. Great job, Drew! You a have a wonderful future ahead of you.
  14. Should be an entertaining dual, at PENN vs. Oak Park River Forest, IL Not sure of the date but would like to see this one...
