Coach_J reacted to rlw028 in Cadet World Championship 2015. Results
I honestly didn't watch enough (time difference) to tell, but did see some serious talent in Juniors this/last year (Iran has 2 senior members who won juniors last year).
That said, Russia won 5 weights, including some light ones. With Lebedev getting up there in age, I wouldn't be surprised to see one of their champs take the reigns at 57 in 2017.

Coach_J reacted to BigTimeFan in Cadet World Championship 2015. Where is USA team?
Postscript on Fix: in the long and growing list of "what the hell do I know anyway" we now have the Russian who beat Fix got handled by Japan in the finals. I won't spoil it for you, but if you get a chance watch it. It's an incredible match. It really showed how a wrestler can handle aggression like the Russian's and if you are anything like me, you are probably wondering how Spencer Lee would have fared against the Russian and the Japanese wrestler. Fix has his work cut out for him!
Coach_J reacted to silver-medal in Cam Tessari
He spent two years out of school working in construction. He was ready to get back to school and wrestling when Lindsey Wilson called. The coach understands kids like Cam and they have a great rapport. He's doing well in class and working very hard in the room. By all accounts he's happy and grateful for this opportunity.
Cam Tessari is a good kid and a terrific talent who was not ready for combination of academics, athletics and the freedom of a college campus when he finished high school. He's more mature now. Wishing him the best.

Coach_J reacted to silver-medal in Josh Moore leaves Kent State for Cleveland St.
Coach J; You'd be shocked at how much nicer many areas of Cleve have become over the last ten years. CSU has a much improved campus. Biggest problem with the program has been lack of funding and vision on the part of the athletic department.

Coach_J reacted to lewboo in Lee Kemp
With the World Team Trials in Madison, Wisconsin this weekend, and with the 1979 World Team being honored, I would like to take this time and let the wrestling world know a few facts and opinions from Lewboo about one of Americaâ€™s greatest wrestlers EVER!!!! No, I am not talking about myself, lol, but rather about the GREAT LEE KEMP!!!!! I had the pleasure off being teammates of Lee Kemp on 2 World teams, a Pan American team, a World Cup team, and a boycotted Olympic team, and became a great fan and friend of a great wrestler and a great person. Looking at this, I just realized I was on 5 different teams with Lee in addition to several USA vs. Russia dual meets, including the one in Rapid City, SD in 1980 when I became the Toughest Kid on the Block! On those teams, Lee Kemp won every time he was my teammate!!!!! He was Jordan Burroughs before there was a Jordan Burroughs!!! In this little story I am about to tell, I may compare Lee Kemp to some of todayâ€™s stars, and to some of yesterdayâ€™s stars to let you know just how great Lee Kemp really was!!! And so let me get on with my little story about Lee Kempâ€™s career.
The year was 1972 and a sophomore in high school in Ohio named Lee Kemp finished his 2nd year of wrestling at 132 pounds with a record of 11-8-3. That same year, one of Americaâ€™s greatest wrestlers ever, and my idol and coach for many years, the legendary Dan Gable wrestling at 149.5 pounds went 20-0 for the entire year, winning the Tbilisi tournament, the Olympic Trials, and the Olympics, with only 1 point being scored on him the entire year!! Flash forward 3 Â½ years, to November of 1975 where a sophomore in college, who had still not yet turned 19 years old, beat the great Dan Gable 7-6 in the finals of the Northern Open!! That spring, in 1976 a now 19 year old Lee Kemp would also beat Stan Dziedzic, who would go on to win a bronze medal in the Olympics that year and then win a World title in 1977. Pretty strong work for a kid who had only been wrestling for 5 years. Lee Kemp was just getting started!
Flash forward to Edmonton, Canada, in 1892 where Lee Kemp would win his 3rd World title in 5 years, along with a bronze medal in 1981, and, like Jordan Burroughs, a three year unbeaten streak at the senior world level. Thatâ€™s right, Lee Kemp was an undefeated World Champ in 1978, an undefeated World Champ in 1979, and an undefeated Olympian in 1980, who did not get to compete in Moscow because of politics, and he also beat the Olympic champion that year. Lee Kemp was also an undefeated World Champion in 1982. That is four undefeated years out of 5 at the senior level, making 5 straight World and Olympic teams!!! Jordan Burroughs just finished 3 straight undefeated years internationally at the senior level, winning two World titles and an Olympic Gold Medal!!! Now he has finally lost one match and has been threatened in several others, and has some great, great challengers in Kyle Dake, David Taylor, and Andrew Howe!! During Lee Kempâ€™s run, he had several great challengers, like Dave Schultz, Mark Churella, and Chuck Yagla and others. But just like Jordan Burroughs, he continued to win and win and win. I say this with tremendous respect for both Lee Kemp and Jordan Burroughs, they both know how to WIN!!!! During this 5 year run, Lee Kemp was 9-0 against the great Dave Schultz, finally losing to him once in 1983, then beating him in the US Open, but opting out of the world team trials. Dave then won the Worlds in 1983, and then beat Lee Kemp 3 out of 3 in the Olympic Trials in 1984, with 2 of the 3 wins coming on criteria.
I mention Jordan Burroughs with Lee Kemp for their 3 straight years of going undefeated internationally at the senior level, because I know how hard that is to do, and how few Americans have done it. Lee Kemp has 4 undefeated years at the senior level, Jordan Burroughs has 3, and I donâ€™t know of anyone else with 3. I believe John Smith with 6 World and Olympic titles in a row has a total of 2 undefeated years, not in a row. I donâ€™t know of anyone else with two. Dan Gable has one, Dave Schultz has zero, Tom and Terry Brands has zero, Randy Lewis has zero, Bruce Baumgardner has either one or zero, Kenny Monday has zero, Cael Sanderson has zero, Kevin Jackson has zero, Mark Schultz has one or zero, John and Ben Peterson have zero, Chris Campbell may have one or zero, Ed and Lou Banach have zero, I think Kurt Angle has zero. I am not sure on some other world and Olympic champs, such as Wayne Wells and any others before 1972. Lee Kemp made 5 consecutive World and Olympic teams, from 1978-1982, going undefeated in 1978, 1979, 1980, and 1982.
Lee Kemp is still Americaâ€™s youngest world champion, winning his first World title in 1978 before he turned 22. He won his second World title before he turned 23. To put that in perspective with some of todayâ€™s stars, Kyle Dake, David Taylor and Logan Stieber are all 23 years old. Lee Kemp is the youngest NCAA finalist of all time, as he did not turn 18 until December 24, of his freshman year in college. He was three months younger as a true freshman in college than Aaron Pico will be this year in what would be his junior year of high school!!! Lee Kemp went 30-5 as a true freshman, beating NCAA champion Chuck Yagla once, and losing to him on split refereeâ€™s decision in the NCAA finals. At the same age, Logan Stieber was a junior in high school, and Kyle Dake and David Taylor at the same age were seniors in high school. Lee Kemp then went undefeated in college the next three years, winning
3 NCAA titles. At the age of 21 years and 3 months, he was the youngest 4 time All-American of all time and the youngest 3 time NCAA Champ of all time until Kyle Dake came along.
I am writing this to let some of you know how great and at such a young age Lee Kemp was, and it was an honor being his teammate many times! Also congrats to the 1979 World Team, and also to Andre Metzger who beat me out to make the 1979 World Team and become Americaâ€™s youngest world medalist!!

Coach_J got a reaction from Tofurky in Coleman Scott to 57kg
Because it's just a one-run deal, I think it's possible. A very full plate, though, with being a first-time head coach. The key is the support of his wife, who is backing him in this. All said, I don't see how he can be a max-performance coach (with recruiting, travel, daily training schedules for the team, etc.) and max-performance Olympic hopeful. Good luck to Mr. Scott.
