    IndyStar Athlete of the Week.

    With the weekend he had, he's got my vote. I guess being a wrestler helps.
  3. Just curios, how many girl's some of you have in your program? Currently Greenwood HS has 0. Middle school has 2 and our club has 2. I'm looking and trying to figure how to recruit more. It's not as easy as walking over to a football field. I'm wondering those with big #'s, what avenue did you guys take to get those #'s up?
  4. Saturday January 5th at Greenwood Middle School. Registrations are open and ready. Women's division is only $5 and weights will be blocked. I setup the women's registration so people can see where other girls have registered in comparison to weights to hopefully incite more to sign up instead of just how many signed up in each division without knowing rough idea on weights. We will disregard the block of weights they signed up under and split them up closest to weight (madison block style) with each other after weigh-ins. Weigh-ins will be on site Friday evening of the 4th from 6pm to 9pm. We are looking for couple satellite weigh-in locations. See the flyer attached for more info. I've ran the tournaments at Whiteland in the past and usually had pretty good turnouts with some quality wrestlers. Hope to have a solid turnout and another successful tournament.

    Favorite Youth Drills

    Since this seems to be nothing but openings for elementary duals teams lately, I thought it'd be nice to get back to some more conversation. What are some of your favorite drills for your youth wrestlers? For newer/little kids, I like to do pretty basic drill where bottom man works up from belly to base, while top guy has hands behind back trying to get chest pressure right in middle of back. Once wrestler comes up to base, they drop to belly and top man jumps to other side. I don't really have a name for the drill but helps little guys learn good chest position, balance and bottom guy builds base with some pressure coming down on him.

    Refresh on Elementary Age

    Very few if any AAU individual tournaments. Mostly USA Wrestling sponsored tournaments through the states local association, here it's ISWA. As of now, there are a lot of club dual meets in November and December with individual tournaments starting up in mid-late December and running through ISWA state in March. As for out of state events/wrestlers, it depends on each tournament. A lot of tournaments, like ours will allow out of state wrestlers. The only tournaments I know where they are restricted to in state wrestlers, are ISWA State and IHSWCA Middle School state tournaments, not sure on Ohio's policies. Whoever is competing will need a USA wrestling card if you don't already have one. www.usawmembership.com

    Possible Ohio State scandal with old wrestling coach

    As part of all of this still unfolds, I'm still curious about other assistant coaches? I know Hellickson has been mentioned and seemed to give his part in reports, but I haven't seen much on other assistant coaches. Was there only 2 coaches during this time period? I understand Jordan is a political figure and once you go there crap hits the fan, but I haven't seen anything being reported about other coaches at the time. What is their point of view, did they hear anything from wrestlers, and did they hear anything from wrestlers? Edit:: Found some stuff from other coaches, but the media is certainly going after Jordan more so than other coaches. “What has been said about Jim Jordan is absolutely wrong,” the six coaches said in the statement. “We all worked on the wrestling coaching staff during Jim’s tenure at The Ohio State University. None of us saw or heard of abuse of OSU wrestlers.”
