  1. During my 3-year high school career, I only successfully took down anyone with a double leg. Well, and a dump if they stopped the double. Once my regular opponents figured out my two moves, I was toast.
  2. Scott Moore. Not sure he was the greatest, but he delivered some brutal leg attacks in his day. Awesome torque and he adjusted his leg ride like a python as he turned people. Hard to describe, since I really had no idea what he was doing.
  3. Body type is definitely a factor in "looking strong". I was reminded of this two weeks ago when I watched Kevin Jack dominate George DeCamillo. George is more muscular, but Jack's length gave him fits, and it was clear that Jack wasn't giving away anything in the strength department. Also reminds me of attending the Southern Scuffle back in 2006, when I was just beginning to follow college wrestling. I ran into a pleasant, skinny young man in the hallway, who smiled politely and said hello. He told me he was a freshman wrestling for Minnesota. I thought "poor fellow, those older, ripped 125's are going to eat him alive." Jayson Ness then proceeded to basically pin his way through the tournament, using his half series to crank people with large biceps over seemingly at will.
  4. Scott Moore: an exciting, unorthodox pinning machine. 34 falls in his UVA year! Hammered by Cliff Moore in the semis, finished his career with 2 1st period pins to take 3rd. In 2003-04, Moore etched his name into numerous categories in the UVa wrestling record books. Moore finished the season with an amazing record of 51-1 overall, 17-0 in dual match action with 34 wins coming by fall. He shattered both the UVa single-season and career record for most falls at Virginia in just one year after posting 34 falls in 2003-04. Moore's 51 single-season wins ranks him first all-time at UVa for most wins in a single season and his 17 dual match wins are the second best mark ever at UVa. His .981 winning percentage is the second best winning percentage for a single season at ever Virginia. Moore finished third in the 2004 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships and was ranked No.1 in the country for most of the season and was the top seed at 141-pounds at the NCAA Championships. He was named the ACC Wrestler of the Week four times and had taken first place or won all seven regular season events/competitions he competed in and won his match at the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) All-Star Classic. Moore began his wrestling career at Penn State (1999-2003) where he won a combined 125 matches (including one red-shirt season) after going 125-42 over four years of competition. In 2002-03, he set the NCAA record for most matches competed in (63) and set a PSU school record for most wins a single season after going 54-9 during an All-American season for the Nittany Lions.
  5. My career ended when as a high school senior I first lost in the semi-finals of the diocesan (Catholic) championship to a guy I probably should have beat, then clobbered a guy I had wrestled numerous times and took 3rd (out of 5 guys! LOL) The guy I lost to then lost in the finals to my nemesis, who I had never beaten. Did I sabotage myself to avoid meeting my nemesis in the finals? Maybe - still haunted by that possibility 45 years later. But I am a much gutsier college wrestling fan!
