  1. Adam Coon with his fourth consecutive pin to reach the finals! Couldn't have happened to better young man!

    Wow! Coon in the finals with his fourth pin in a row!

    Next Rising Program?

    Mackall at 125 had a strong spring freestyle season, as well. Dresser and company are quietly putting together a team/program that will be built to last. Hoping the ISU/IU dual becomes relevant again in the near future.

    Grand Prix of Spain and Dogu

    That was a terrible call. How does he get 4 for that last scramble?

    When THEY talk about "GREATs"

    Actually, Rudy was defeated by Rick Nardelli from Huntington in the Sectionals and did not get a chance to wrestle Edmonds or Capone at State. Rudy was a great friend through HS and behind. Haven't seen him since I moved to Florida. John Iannuzzi, Rudy Isom, and myself were 1979 Jr. National finalist and trained in the Fifth Avenue wrestling room with Jumper Leggio.

    Transfers

    Demetrius Thomas will be a junior next year and used his redshirt at Williams Baptist. Very intriguing as this guy is an athlete and will have better competition and workout partners.

    Greco WTT

    Chavez won the third match of the round robin and Patrick Martinez beat Provisor in their third match of the round robin to make the world team.

    Rinteria and The Storms Coming Gents

    Expect Lee to take an Olympic redshirt for the 2019-2020 season.

    2019 NCAA individual champion predictions

    Word on the street is Yianni will be at 149. Vito-133, Koll-141, and Yianni at 149. Yianni has the frame to fill out and put on some size. If he does move up does he follow Dake's footsteps and go up a class each year. Tall order, for sure.

    Florida to allow backups in postseason

    New York allows two per weight to enter League's (District's in Florida). Then, the top four move on to sectionals (Suffolk County/Section XI). With close to sixty schools with wrestling in our county, very rarely do teams have two from the same team in the finals. But, the second scorers definitely affect the team score and race.

    What's the story on Alirez?

    Let's hope not. If he stays home and they pick up a couple of more studs, Northern Colorado is a top 20 team or better. They are in a great wrestling conference (BIG 12) and Nickerson building NCU only helps the sport at the DI level.

    Transfers

    That is the question. Will they go through a wrestle-off process or tell guys what weight they will wrestle. Nick could be in a log jam. The question is where is Fix going? If he goes 133 and everyone bumps up a class then I see Nick at 125. Nick is better suited for 125 than 133.

    Gilroy's new coach

    Actually, it was Lee Kemp, not Kenny Monday, who said you will be 300 lbs. if you do not get your nutrition under control. Literally, Daniel almost died making weight for the 2008 Olympics. He was a former bronze medalist and had a serious shot at Olympic gold. Obviously, he has done much better making 205 for MMA than he did making 211 for the Olympics.
