Dwilly reacted to MattM in Jacob Moran
Last I heard he was considering taking a “grey shirt” year out at the Olympic Training Center before starting at IU. Not sure if that is still the car or not. Could be an attempt to help in grow into a true 125, as well as, give IU an opportunity to make a lineup spot and/or scholarship available for him.

Dwilly reacted to Y2CJ41 in Neil Sego and John Lowe
Please keep Neil and John's families in your thoughts. Both were in a plane crash yesterday and passed away. Neil was heavily involved with Indian Creek wrestling and a frequent poster on here. John was involved with the Center Grove wrestling club also.

Hey people its called the free enterprise system and this stuff isn't cheap !!!! kidding
Dwilly reacted to FCFIGHTER170 in What possible match ups are you looking for at IHPO?
IHPO because you win 1 match at state and place..A lot of really good wrestlers don't even place at IHPO.. Both are unbelievable feathers in 1s cap and your boy won both.. ...but I see where that's not always true with Carson winning IHPO and not placing at state his jr. year.
Dwilly reacted to JMILL in CP on its way.
@Sig40 has said in previous posts that this is not even the most impressive CP line up coming and that the next 4-5 yrs the line up will get even better and better. that is scary given their line up this year will be very very very good and their coaching staff is also at that same level with Hawk, Cosgrove, Sessa, McGill and the list keeps going. Look forward to see how this all turns out over next few years for sure !!!
Dwilly reacted to Mattyb in Jesse Mendez
This is so true. Also... does anybody know what he would like to study? Knowing his family, I can almost guarantee that his academics will play a huge part in his decision. I’m not sure about his grades but I can almost promise you that his dad and mom don’t play! I bet you he picks a school that has excellence in his academic interests. He’s a kid that gets it and can have a great conversation at a young age. I think many times (as wrestling people) we over look that. Super impressive.
Dwilly reacted to Kyle Ayersman in Kyle Todrank
He did reverse Nolf and he was wrestling up two weight classes, give the kid a break. It was not meant as a taunt, again he was just trying to have fun with the sport (talked to him personally). Also, as someone stated already, he shook hands and was not disrespectful at all.
Dwilly reacted to MackG in Did not look like Viduya was pinned....
Again. Not taking anything from Asa... but if anything, that pic proves that the ref was not in position to see if Viduya’s left shoulder/scapula is down, and it suggests that his left side was, in fact, not down.
Further, the still photo accurately represents the amount of time the ref took to count what was supposed to be a two count. Basically, he took no time at all because he never verified that both sides were down and there was exactly one second between the time that Viduya was in the position that the pin was called in and the mat was smacked. In that second, the ref went from being on his feet to smacking the mat. One second. The rule is a two count.
Yes, filthy, filthy cradle. But there is no rule that says if somebody hits a filthy cradle on you that you are automatically pinned.
Wrestling Scholar, we absolutely should be discussing this. Because the whole point is that kids who work hard all season to make the finals should be protected from errant officiating by a Review Official at the head table.
Dwilly reacted to Mattyb in Carson Brewer
Cool story about those two (Ray and Carson). They started wrestling together in kindergarten under Lee Harris at Avon wrestling club. They both were really really bad! I don't think that either won a single match for a year maybe two. The Riouxs and my family went to tournaments every weekend and we would all leave before lunch. A couple years in we decided to give a kid that was starting an academy out of his parents two car garage a shot. His pets would run across the mat from time to time and when he opened the garage door the wrestling would end up on the asphalt driveway from time to time. That kid was Mr. Ryan Parrish and that is where the Contenders Wrestling Academy started. Since those days we have traveled the county with the Riouxs. Logging countless miles taking and giving lumps. I even coached Ray and his brothers in football. To say that those two go way back is an understatement. What you saw there was legit love for a brother that has walked in the same shoes as him as long as he can remember. My family and I legit feel that much love for Ray and his family. I am sure that the reaction for Asa was similar. Those boys, the Conleys,and the Reynolds have been through so much together. They are all very close.
With all of that said, he did not mean to offend the tradionalist. He was not showing up Donahue. Im pretty sure that he spent most of his post match interview saying how tough he was. I assure you has expressed to me how much respect he has for young Andrew and thinks that he is going to be really special (we all do). He legit was on the floor getting announced with a handful of his good friends and was just acting like a kid. I really didn't know that he had a sandwich in his pocket until he winked at me and patted his pocket. At that time a started to shake my head no. Then I thought… he is a kid he wants to have fun and be silly (again... sorry if that offends anyone that thinks the face off should be formal). I just shook my head and hoped that nobody took it the wrong way. As soon as One Proud started this thread, I shared his comments with Carson (something I never do as he knows little about this board). He smiled and said, "tell that man thank you! that's exactly what I was going for"! So glad that he got to share his sandwich love with three kids that mean a lot to him also. So.. if hes known for a sandwich and not wrestling, he will be fine with that. I assure that he takes just as much pride in being a lighthearted good friend as he does being a champ.
With all of that said... Thank you so much to all of the coaches, parents, team leaders, and friends that have been a part of his journey with him. I assure you that he a Jordan are going to go to Ohio and make Indiana wrestling proud.
Dwilly reacted to H.B. in Carson Brewer
What is with Indiana and them being against kids having a little fun? It’s a sandwich. It’s not him taking away from his opponent at all by eating it. It didn’t affect the outcome of the match in any way. Trent Hidlay literally ate a hoagie after Who’s #1 and it was celebrated as a great celebration by a great wrestler. The kids here can’t do anything spontaneous or out of the ordinary without being called classless. Chad Red got criticized for dancing after winning, same with Deondre. I can only imagine how much excitement runs through someone after winning a state championship or even being in the match. Brewer ate a sandwich during the face off most likely because he was hungry. It didn’t hurt anyone. They’re kids. Let them have fun. Not everyone has to have these stale facial expressions. We should want some spontaneity.
Dwilly reacted to davecloud in Coach Peckinpaugh's Awesome Poem
A great time at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony today (kudos to HoF direct Scott Schwarz and the IHSWCA executive staff).) Great to hear the stories about the inductees and what they have done to build our great sport. I will be forever indebted to all those who helped me along the way. Special thanks to Coach Rex Peckinpaugh for his touching induction speech for me. Rex shared a poem he wrote about the rivalry and enduring friendships between coaches and I wanted to share it with all of you.Thanks, Rex, I love you, brother.
I look across the mat
And I see a friend
I see a man who has toiled like I
And never gives up until the end
I see a man who is a leader
One that I certainly have admired
I see a guy who I know keeps going
Even at times when he is oh so tired
I see a man who I want to beat
But one I love just the same
A man I have struggled against
In this crazy coaching game
I see a friend I have cried with
One I have laughed with as well
A man who I know if I needed him
Would always answer the bell
I see a friend over there
In that corner across the way
I see a brother I have fought with
But one I will love till my dying day.
