FlyNavy reacted to Y2CJ41 in Article: 2020 Super 32 Preview
The season is around the corner and this weekend will be the ultimate test for Indiana grapplers at the Super 32. There are 45 Indiana athletes registered for this year’s event in Myrtle Beach. Of interest will be a few wrestlers that will be new to Indiana wrestling this year that could make a big impact at Bankers Life in February.
Three state champions along with a sophomore with a load of national success highlight the Indiana wrestlers that will contend for a coveted Super 32 belt. Sergio Lemley is back in Indiana after winning an Illinois state title last year. He is nationally ranked and won IHPO in September. He will be in the mix at a deep 120lbs weight class.
State champion Zeke Seltzer took an early loss last year and was unable to crack the top 8. This year he will take on a lot of top guys at 126lbs. His weight features the two top ranked guys in the nation, but Zeke has shown he belongs in this group.
Chesterton’s Evan Bates won a state title at 220lbs but will be looking for a belt at 195lbs this weekend. He placed 5th here last year at 195lbs. His toughest foes include a couple top 5 wrestlers in Seth Shumate and Brandon Hoselton.
Lastly, Christian Carroll is also in the mix at 195lbs. Everyone in Indiana has known for a while he is extremely talented. However, he did not get to show it off as an injury sidelined him last year. He won the Grappler Fall Classic at 215lbs a couple weeks ago knocking off a couple ranked wrestlers. He is one that many inside and outside of Indiana are watching this weekend.
Some wrestlers to watch that are contenders to reach the podium include state champion Alex Cottey, runner-up Cheaney Schoeff, third placer Hayden Watson, and three-time placer David Pierson. Cottey made a deep run last year and will return to 113lbs this year. He will be big at this weight and his extremely physical style will bode well for him. He has had some national success in the past at Fargo so he is no stranger to big event placements.
Schoeff had a great run last year at the state finals. Look for him to make a deep run in Myrtle Beach at 120lbs. He gave Lemley a great match at IHPO. This could be his breakout national event.
Watson and Pierson both had great IHPO tournaments. Watson lost a close match in the finals to a top 5 wrestler, while Pierson won a deep weight in…. David Pierson style. Watson is going to be trouble for everyone that he faces with a relentless in your face style. Pierson is a wildcard that can end a match at any time. He will need to string together multiple solid matches in a row to make the podium.
Others to keep your eyes on
A couple new faces to Indiana will be interesting to watch. Crown Point will have Javen Estrada in the lineup this year. He was a state qualifier in Illinois last year and had a really good IHPO event. South Carolina state champion Matteo Vargo will be new to Granger this year and is entered at 126lbs. Obviously South Carolina is not a power state so it will be interesting to see him in a field this deep.
Brownsburg freshman Preston Haines will be another wrestler to watch. He placed 4th at IHPO and could be a contender for a state title this year. Evan Dickey will be back at 106lbs and keeps improving each year. He could be a sleeper at a weight loaded with younger athletes.
State placers to watch include runner-ups Matthew Koontz and Jujuan Anderson. Third place finishers Logan Frazier, Kysen Montgomery, Jaden Reynolds, and Aiden Warren could be in the mix to make the podium. Reynolds won an IHPO title in September and has had a very good off-season. Montgomery and Frazier are both solid wrestlers that could put together a run of wins to put themselves in a good spot to place. Warren is taking a week off from the gridiron to hit the mats this week. Another wrestler to watch is Gavinn Alstott. He was 4th in 2019 at state, but had a death draw at semi-state this year. Lastly, the other state placers entered include Stephan Roberson Jr., Ian Heath, and Christian White.
Super 32 History

FlyNavy reacted to Galagore in Practice protocals
We should probably just class the individual state tournament. That would probably take care of things. I kid...
My major concern is Saturday meets...not so much in the safety, but in getting several schools together who may have varying degrees of safety measures. Hopefully our coaches and parents will react well if the host school has more stringent mask enforcement, etc. than their home school. Hosting a tournament is hard enough, let alone now, let alone if you are constantly having to ask people to follow basic safety guidelines.
FlyNavy reacted to Y2CJ41 in Practice protocals
One thing we are hoping to do is install 50+ hooks in the room so kids can hang their masks up and not just throw them on the ground between times of wearing them. Throwing them on the ground is not good when you can add any assortment of skin diseases to the mask along with your Covid! On top of that people need to wash their masks regularly, which I'm not sure everyone is doing.
Now on the mask issue. Masks are NOT a cure all, no one has EVER claimed they are 100% effective. Too many people think that social distancing, masks, etc are 100% effective and when they are not they claim they are worthless. Just because it isn't 100% effective doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. No vaccine is 100% effective, but it's still a REALLY good idea to get them.
The purpose of masks is to reduce the risk and more importantly to limit the amount of the virus that is expelled. If you have COVID or even the flu and the particles are filtered 80% through your mask the people than contract it through you will be affected way less due to it being a lower dosage of the virus. A simple test would be would you rather someone sneeze in your face with or without a mask on?
Lastly, if you look at schools and their COVID cases you see that they are very low. They have strict protocols and kids are wearing their masks PROPERLY, sanitizing, social distancing at a higher rate, etc. In the whole Carroll school district of about 6000+ students there have only been 20 confirmed cases between students and staff. In all honesty I'd feel much safer in a school than Wal-Mart or any other public place where people are casually adhering to the guidelines.
FlyNavy reacted to Y2CJ41 in Practice protocals
The main things we are focusing on is masks as much as possible such as during warm-ups, technique teaching, stretching, etc. The other is having groups of about 4 or 5 kids that can wrestle with each other. As well as the obvious things like hand sanitizer and more stringent cleaning.
Meets will be interesting as we will need to space seating and possibly limit who travels based on what JV matches we would have. I think we may even need to have a "half time" for duals to clean the mats. For bigger events we may need to clean mats after each round so it would add another 15 minutes to each round.
As we tell the kids, whether we like this stuff or not this is what we will NEED to do to have a full and complete season so just do it. No one wants to go to these measures so complaining isn't going to do any good.
FlyNavy reacted to CoachW33 in Practice protocals
Just looking to follow this up. I thought it was a valid concern and something we should all be considering as we gear up for our season.
What are you guys thinking about how you will run practices? We've discussed creating groups of four for practice and you can only work within that group.
The question was brought to me by my AD about using two mats for duals but only running one match at a time and once one match ends, cleaning the mat between matches. Seems like it would make the dual take twice as long but is it necessary?
Tournaments, do you have hospitality rooms? Do you have tournaments at all? Do we modify our schedule and compete in multiple duals a week?
What are your plans to prevent the spread?
FlyNavy reacted to Mattyb in Wrestling a Spring Sport
I think there will be a vaccine by then. I assume that others believe the same thing.
Here is my educated guess on how things may go. I think that the IHSAA will in fact start the football season. As soon as a handful of players from a few teams test positive Covid (notice that I did not say contract), the football season will be ended or postponed. Football season goes through a November and we all know what also happens in November. We all see that Covid has been and will be further politicalized. If you don’t believe that... just watch Fox News (If you want the republican side) or CNN (if you want the democrat side) today. I tend to watch both, and have came to the conclusion that both sides have completely gone crazy! I’m not here to say which side is right or wrong... I’m just stating the obvious. Politics will come into play.
Bottom line.. until we get a vaccine and the election is over.... I wouldn’t plan on having a season. Again, it’s just a very educated guess from watching our country fall apart everyday in the media. I hope that I’m wrong.
FlyNavy reacted to Y2CJ41 in Folkstyle State hurt by Corona?
This isn't the flu, there is no vaccine for this virus. This is a new virus that spread to humans in December and has now spread across the world and has a very high mortality rate. When the people who study these things are saying to be careful you probably should listen.
The worst thing that can happen is people not taking this seriously and millions get infected and overload our already busy hospitals.

FlyNavy reacted to ontherise219 in Unpopular Opinon...Pairings Show
Thanks @UncleJimmy that would be awesome! Like I am sure y2 would tell you the Ihsaa would need a bigger time slot for all of the different directions the show would go and the half hour of fanboying I would be doing with coach Goebel.
I love that the show uses the rankings as a base I think it would be really cool if they had the rank on the bracket so everyone can see where the ranked matches up are and i think it would help greg.
Overall I love the show and think it is an amazing idea! I know some programs were doing watch shows for the release which is awesome too.
I’ll try to keep my Sunday after semi state open in case they call.
thanks guys I appreciate all of you! Also o believe we are doing half the bracket tonight on gorilla 🦍 radio
FlyNavy reacted to UncleJimmy in Unpopular Opinon...Pairings Show
I know I'll get pelted with empties from any poster that starts with "SW" and I respect Mr. Goebel (sic) immensely, but maybe it's time to put a third guy on the show? And might I recommend @ontherise219 for that position? Now hear me out....
How many times last night did he mention "I'm not familiar with that wrestler..." or "IndianaMat ranks him...". Well, the actual ranker does some media stuff for the actual sight that does the rankings oft quoted, and since he does the rankings pretty well it appears, he does seem to know a bit about most/all the wrestlers and not just the ones at the E'ville SS. Again, nothing personal, and as far as the actual call of the finals matches goes I think Mr. Goebel is great and knows his stuff and adds insight, but for a parings show I'd just like to hear a bit more insight/matchups etc and think OTR could provide that. Of course the hour and fifteen minute time frame might be tough but he wouldn't have @Y2CJ41 to throw him off topic.
Like I said, unpopular opinion.. but outside of the ESS dudes there just didn't seem to be much insight or info put out there except "that should be a good quarter bracket".
There...I said it.
I'll delete my acct now.
FlyNavy reacted to Jim calhoun in Special night at Plymouth honoring coach Bob Read
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.

FlyNavy reacted to FCFIGHTER170 in How about these stall happy region refs?
Anybody who don't think Henry Wilk is a top notch ref or bias is delusional.. he's by far 1 of the best refs I've ever seen and he's a no nonsense guy! Idk about all the others but I can guarantee there was no bias on his behalf!
FlyNavy reacted to TeamInjuryTime07 in How about these stall happy region refs?
In your 11 years officiating did you ever hear a negative reaction from a crowd when you thought you made the right call??
Im not trying to say that they made every call perfectly in the tournament. I get upset about calls from officials every weekend. I think in that group some are better than others but overall I didn’t think the officiating was as bad as you stated. My main point was most of those guys in that gym are getting up there in age and probably would love to be sitting in the stands watching great wrestling while some younger people join the officiating ranks, but for some reason people aren’t beating down the door to walk out there and officiate and get ridiculed on the internet for the calls they made.
Lastly if a kid is stalling it doesn’t matter what the score is or how much time is on the clock. 1 minute into the match or 2 seconds left

Apologies if I have missed a post on this already on the board.
As you already know, Coach Rex Peckinpaugh has announced his retirement as head coach of the New Castle Trojans. I will not attempt to summarize his statement since it, like everything Rex does, was so well done. Check it out on Facebook. Rex thought long and hard about his decision and I am confident he has done the best thing, like always. Reading the posts from past Trojan wrestlers and friends of the program was like taking a walk back through time. Seeing the names with the posts sparked a lot of fond memories (except for when we wrestled them). Rex has been a leader and influential voice in Indiana high school wrestling so long that it is difficult to remember when he wasn't a force or to envision a future without him in that role. The good news is that Rex has no intention of disappearing. I'm sure we will see him at events and continue to enjoy his company.
Thanks, Rex for all you have done to raise the profile of the sport in Indiana. The stats are truly amazing: Over 1000 dual meet wins, a win streak of over 100, dozens and dozens of state finalists, team runners-up in some epic matches and helping to host an awesome Semi-State, freestyle tournaments and Middle School State.
But more than that, thanks for being such a great friend, rival and role model for how to treat athletes. There simply are no better people in the sport than the New Castle Wrestling Family.

Well...I don’t know the stories, but I do know the school was called CMA for the longest time, which stands for Culver Military Academy. I’ve only got a quarter of a brain...sorry...and you just bashed (PUBLICLY) on a head coach and a program. Not cool. Do that in a garage somewhere with your buddies...not publicly.
I am sorry that I’ve edited this post multiple times, but I want to to be classy. I hope your son does extremely well and wins some huge titles, but I just don’t think public bashing is appropriate towards a coach, or his program. Best of luck in the future endeavors!
