    Best graduating class from one school ever

    The Delta teams in the 80's were crazy good. The 03 Mater Dei team was the best I've seen. Here's their seniors results that year: Craig Macke (41-1) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Finished 3rd after losing to Escebedo in the semis Aaron Scott (31-7) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Finished 3rd losing to Tsirtsis in the semis Craig Weinzapfel (38-0) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Champ Dustin Nosko (20-2) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Champ Sam Wildeman (34-1) Evansville Mater Dei (12) Champ We lost a close dual meet to Griffith that year in the team Semi State. After a couple of days of being pissed off about it, we realized that the Mater Dei team had a legit chance to shut us out at team state if we would have won. Macke is on my list of 'best guys to never win'. He was special.

    Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    While we can't deny the numbers here point to the fact that specialization of sports leads to more success by your math here, but I do not agree with the methodology to this thought process. I'm not a fan of folding a sliver of fact around an opinion. Using your same numbers, I can also say that the reason there's more 4-timers since 2004 is because they had iphones. The numbers clearly state that since the invention of iphones we have had more 4 time state champions. There are many factors involved in winning 4 IHSAA state titles. We could also use your math to say that it's clearly easier to win a state title since the age of specialization and year-round competition from an early age. Is it possible that Angel Escobedo would not have won a state title as a freshman if some butt kicker cross country kid quit wrestling as a 10 yr old to just train cross country? Ugh. It's been my opinion for a long time that if you play a sport with the aspirations of money you're doing it for the wrong reasons. Play a sport because you like it. Workout because you like working out. If you workout because your going to get a scholarship, then what happens after you get a scholarship? It's over. But if you workout because you like working out, you have long term life habit that will be with you forever. Tom Cameron was my high school coach and the biggest mentor in my life. When I got my first coaching position he gave me a book called Winning is Everything, and Other American Myths. I highly recommend it to coaches and parents.

    Carmel USA Wrestling Elementary and Middle School Duals

    Coach, I emailed you the flyer. Let me know if you have any questions. We enjoy our dual stuff early in the season. It's a chance for our guys to compete as a team, get some matches, and out the door. It's also great for our newer parents (OK, great for me as a parent too!) to say we compete from 9-noon. If anyone knows the answer to, "what time will the tourney end", please let me know! I've struggled answering that one for 23 years now!

  22. Sunday Night we are hosting our first Celebrity Dual Meet at 6:00 in the Varstiy Gym at Carmel High School. The goal of our dual it to help raise money for our middle school guys going to Wabash camp, in a way that promotes the sport (does anyone like selling candles?). Admission to our duals is free, but we are asking for a $10 donation. We look forward to starting this tradition and are excited about what this can grow into in the future! Match 1: Jerrod Smith vs Sam Bublick Both Smith and Bublick are IHSAA State Qualifiers from our 2016 team and this is quite the matchup. Both grapplers are known for their ability to scramble so that category is a push. Smith brings a high cardio level to this match and Bublick brings a power situation that can give Smith fits. Odds makers are taking Bublick if it is a 90 second match, but the longer the match goes, the more momentum can move to Smith's advantage. Match 2: Gary Bacon vs Bill Kepler Bacon and Kepler are both Alumni of Wabash College and they also have incredible street cred around the streets of Crawfordsville from their presence there in the late 90's early 80's. This is an interesting matchup because Bacon has size on his favor, but Kepler might have more power. I'm sure both guys thumbs are sore from the group text trash talk that I have been fortunate enough to be included in. Odds makers have this match leaning towards Bacon, but Kepler isn't out of the equation because of all of the unknowns he brings to the table. Match 3: Aj Gunn vs Jake Shafer This match will be fun to watch with two of Carmel's better resume guys getting after it. Shafer had a collarbone issue this winter and is just getting back into his true form, while Gunn is a crafty opponent that is learning to score from different positions every day. Match 4: Jack Eiteljorge vs. Chad Welch Eiteljorge has improved lately and has been rumored to score his first takedown on "The Chad" last week. Chad contests this score and blames Doug for being a terrible ref. Can Jack score another one if front of people and Doug not being the ref? Match 5: Doug Welch vs Scott Hinkel Hinkel is the career pins leader for Purdue before he became head coach there from 2007-2015. Coach Hinkel actually recruited Doug to wrestle at Purdue. Coach Welch has one state titles and has NCAA wins over some of America's best, but can he get over the "Big Brother" syndrome and score on his first college mentor. Definitely should be match of the night!

    Middle School State

    I remember when I first got involved with the ISWA in the mid 90s and Mr. and Mrs. Errett proposed having qualifying tourneys for freestyle state and it was proposed to be cash positive compared to having one big tourney. If everyone is serious about a two week tourney, I would suggest asking ISWA clubs that are hosting regionals to host a MS Regional since they have mats out on Saturday already. I know North Montgomery ran a club tourney after their regional. Pros: I think you'd get more kids wrestling. I'm pretty positive that more Carmel kids would go to the regional if it was closer and not as 'skilled' as the MS State. I'd be confident that the other regions would get many more kids at a regional that were hours away from New Castle. Cons: Two weekends of tourneys for kids that might be in their middle school season.
