My son had the privilege of representing the USA in the Maccabiah games in 2013. Luckily for him the competition at heavyweight was a little less than the other weights. It was a competitive team. An ALL American from Brown, Greco US team member , Other D1 or former D1 wrestlers, 2 x state champ from Ohio . They were coached by former All American from Cornell. It was a more than wonderful 28 day experience in Israel for him.
If you are Jewish or have Jewish wrestler on your team please show this to him. Tryouts for the last few cycles were in the Cleveland area and I imagine they will be there again so it is rather convenient for Indiana residents. If any one has any questions please feel free to contact me.
