  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...
  15. I'll share some insight because I don't think Steve (Stevan's dad) will mind... In my conversation with Steve recently, he stressed how it is bad timing for Stevan due to the scholarship monies being allocated already for the 2015 graduates and the $$$ is now being earmarked for the 2016 recruiting class so ASU didn't have $$$ that they wanted to offer Stevan, as we all know in an equivalency sport such as wrestling and the 9.9 scholarships available, it isn't like a blank check with all of these schools. ASU signed a HUGE class from 2015, there just wasn't any money available until AFTER
  16. The placings are different as well, 1st thru 6th. (Which I am not in favor of but it's their deal and they like it, I like IN's 1st thru 8th because it seems to be a standard in wrestling throughout the country in most tournaments). They follow the winner so you can get back into the tournament if you lose the opening match and the guy who beat you wins the next match, you are placed back into the Conso's. I know a lot of IL folks are pushing the IHSA for a true double-elimination State Finals like the Super Sectional and Regional. In Indiana, I will never understand the IHSAA's way of thinkin
  17. Y2 I couldn't agree more. As for IL vs. IN, you can draw your own conclusions, I am just commenting on the events and the participants. If you feel "threatened" or "sensitive" about the issues, that's your problem. Anyone who has read my posts for years will know that I have always said that IN's top end talent was outstanding, it is a sheer numbers game in a lot of cases with the depth.
  18. Awesome Team! They should tear it up!
  19. The only 2A champ I recognized was Danny, I am not familiar with the 1A kids, I've never heard of those other kids. I do LOVE the 1A crowd at Champaign, they bring their whole town to state, they are crazy! JJ Wolfe, another 1A champ is extremely tough but I believe he might have been in PA.

  21. I think Danny (Swan) was the only State Champ in the IL lineup, he's a 3x'er in 1A. I think the studs for IL were at the Dapper Dan or didn't commit.
