    No One Famous reacted to Cael McCormick in Thank You   
    Indiana Wrestling Family,
     
    Thank you all for the amazing support throughout my 18-year career. I especially want to thank my parents, coaches, teammates, and mentors from around the state. I appreciate the sacrifices you made to help me reach my goals.
     
    Thank you to the Yorktown Wrestling family for developing me and my fellow Tigers. It is amazing to watch old teammates’ success at the collegiate level. Also, thank you to the administrators, officials, board members, and moderators (ISWA, IHSWCA, IndianaMat, etc.) for promoting Indiana wrestling.
     
    Thank you to the Army Wrestling program. I have lifelong friends, coaches, and mentors that elevated my game to the national stage.
     
    Thank you to anyone I missed in this message. There are so many amazing people from around the state, you all are incredible!

    On behalf of Silas, myself and the rest of our family....we want to bring awareness to how accommodating the IHSAA was for us this weekend.  All of us (including myself) at times get so caught up in what we feel they do wrong as it pertains to wrestling, we can easily become blinded to the multitude of right they do. Mr. Faulkens seen to it we had All-Access passes, and we’re allowed in our regular seats at our convenience.  That type of gesture deserves a lot of credit.  Because in what is always an extremely exhausting weekend.....factoring my health, my wife having to carry my breathing machine and our youngest daughter, without their philanthropic gesture, this weekend would not have been possible for me.
     
    I also want to commend Jacob Laplace and the Mishawaka Coaching staff.  They had a tremendous gameplan of counter wrestling by the edge of mat to slow Silas’ relentless pace.  We have been friends and thought a lot of Jacob and family going all the way back to 6th grade.  He and Silas were always summer teammates with the Outlaws and forged a bond that continues to this day.  Wrestling Family can be an equal bond as blood at times, because there’s such an understanding of the sacrifice involved for wrestlers, coaches and parents.  We have a lot of genuine love for many of the Caveman faithful.  Specifically the Sandefur’s, Fogarty’s, Walker’s and of course the Laplace family.  
    I’m extremely proud of Jacob’s effort.  He wrestled Silas as well as ANYONE has the last 2 yrs.  But more importantly....I’m proud of Jacob as a young man of faith. Indiana Tech stole a diamond in the ruff recruit!  But Coach Pompei will undoubtedly help grow his solid foundation to achieve tremendous things at the next level.

    Friday night at Maconaquah was filled with some great action and a lot of young ladies putting themselves on the line, but I wanted to share with all of you a photo I took that really hit me. 
     
    Heritage High School hasn't (according to IndianaMat results) won a dual meet in the last four years and they are 0-47 in that time. But every time I see coaches Lockett and Martin, I am impressed at the way they run their program. They are full of energy and passion for their kids. I have seen it at home dual meets, at the ACAC duals and I saw it on Friday night. 
     
    Heritage had one girl wrestling. One girl. Yet the entire team (almost, I think) and both coaches were in attendance and coaching their hearts out and laughing with their kids. This made a huge impression on me and I will be rooting for the Patriots the rest of the year. 
    The whole team spent six hours in a gym to watch Amber Hoy wrestle four matches. 
     
    Kudos to the Heritage team and to both coaches for the role they are playing in their program and congrats to Amber Hoy on her placement Friday night.

    Lee ragdolls Molinaro 10-0 in 1:25. And it wasn't that close. Two 4 point moves and a roll gets the job done.
     
    Then Diakamoholis injury forfeits out of the third place match. Lee qualifies for the Olympic Trials as an 11 seed.

    MD is finally resembling the MD of the late 90’s and through the early 2000’s. This team is stacked even without their best wrestler Matt Lee. Hope this dominance continues. I didn’t go to MD but a world without MD dominating state so bad that the crowd is MD vs the rest of the state. And MD occupies half of the Market Square Arena.

    I feel like the top schools have tougher schedules nowadays.  Many schools are traveling out of state, so we do not have as many undefeated champions.  Because they have a loss, it does not mean they arent as good.  IMO

    I began coaching at Mishawaka a year after I had graduated from there, and spent 2 years learning from a HOF coach. Moved on from there and spent 6 years at Jimtown, coaching the likes of Kenny Kerrn, Hunter Watts, etc. I had the privilege of learning under another HOF coach.
    Three years ago, myself and friends/coaches that I trust, took over a program that was in desperate need of a revival.  Our first year at Bremen we had 5 kids at the High School level, 13 at the middle school, and 19 came out for the first time for our youth program. Last year we had 11 at the high school, 30 in middle school, and 35 in our club. Going into this year, we have 20 at the high school level, expecting 30+ in the middle school, and we just ended our introductory youth camp with over 40 kids. Our Club is expected to have at least 30+, starting next week, and we are competing in elementary duals in a few weeks. For the first time in about 5 years, Bremen should have a full high school lineup. None of this would be possible if I didn’t have coaches around myself that helped out as much as they do, parents believing in the process, and our philosophy. Good things are in motion and it is exciting to see what we are accomplishing in terms of rebuilding a program. Everything else will fall into place as we move forward!
    Call us butter, because we are on a roll!

    No One Famous reacted to Sig40 in Jesse Mendez Wrestling at Flo’s Who’s #1 event.   
    Just want to thank all the Indiana wrestling fans that came to Carver Hawkeye Arena to cheer on Jesse(70+).  Jesse definitely had the loudest crowd besides the 2 Iowa commits.  Also thank you to the Joe, Mike, and Caleb for coming out(even got to see Caleb's sick dance moves).  This was an amazing weekend for Jesse and our family.  Jesse was really happy with the support he received from everyone and is already talking about coming back next year.  
    Side note: Indiana has had 5 WNO competitors compared to Iowa's 1.  Indiana is killing it on the national scene and there is another strong group of young men in middle school that is going to keep that tradition alive.  Indiana is and will continue to be respected.

    But you need to look at the guys in 2016, not what they did since after.  I think Asa as a freshman probably loses to Cernus.  I love Asa to death, as he is one of my wrestlers, but the reality is Cernus was pretty darn good. Were the tops kids from 2016 champs better, or have better careers, maybe.  I believe a better barometer would be the number of kids going to college to wrestle.  Is that number increasing or decreasing?
