Why is Echemendia the next big thing? in College Wrestling Posted May 4, 2020 · Report reply 6 minutes ago, Antitroll2828 said: The whole point about his age is his struggled against high school kids in Arizona with his mat wrestling, and a 20 year old is a lot more physically matured then a 16 yr old, so with advantage in strength still struggling like that doesn’t bode well for when he faces the elite of the elite on the mat wrestling in the big ten week after week. I've not seen or heard about his birth date. Is/was he 20-years-old and winning a state title? According to the Arizona Interscholastic Association by-laws: AGE LIMIT / BIRTH RECORD RULE 15.6.1 Age Limits – If a student becomes 19 years of age after September 1, he/she is eligible to compete for the remainder of that school year. If he/she becomes 19 years of age on or before September 1, he/she is not eligible for any part of that school year. 15.6.2 Birth Records – Acceptable record of birth shall be submitted before a student’s name is placed on an eligibility list for varsity participation. Acceptable records shall be: 126.96.36.199 Certified Birth Certificate – One certified by the appropriate state agency. 188.8.131.52 Acceptable Substitutes – Hospital Certificate of Birth with seal or appropriate signature; a Department of Commerce Certificate; a Bureau of Immigration Certificate; a Department of Justice Certificate; a Certificate of Indian Blood signed and sealed by the Department of Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs; a birth registration card issued by the State of Arizona Department of Health Services with seal; or a passport issued to a United States citizen (born in the United States or a naturalized citizen) by the State Department of the United States. 184.108.40.206 Verification of Birth – Verification of birth may also be established when three reputable sources of information acceptable to the AIA Executive Board all agree as to the date of birth (i.e., school records, immunization records, etc.). Such documents must demonstrate utilization of the birth date over an extended period of time (i.e., each document should reflect issue dates encompassing a number of years). How could he have competed for a state title in Arizona with that being the case, especially if you continue to suggest he was already 20-years-old come Fargo after his senior year in high school? It doesn't add up. Every single 16-year-old is at X level of physical maturity and strength, while every single 20-year-old is at a higher level of physical maturity and strength, simply because of age? Is that what you're selling here? Was he being turned to his back at frosh/soph tournaments? I have only an English degree, but it served me well enough in reading and comprehension for my science requirements to earn As, and realize that your story isn't adding up here.
