  1. You are right. For some reason I thought he lost to Ware both years and remember him being fairly dominate in the consolation finals both years.
  2. I would add two 2-4-2 guys to the list. Montell Marion and Robert Hamlin.
  3. Jake Rosholt versus either BJ Padden or Jon Trenge in a national championship finals match. There is no doubt Rosholt was money in March, and he beat nearly everyone put in front of him. Yet he is rarely mentioned amongst the all-time greats despite his three championships. Some of it has to do with his inconsistency during the regular season, but I think a lot of it has to do with him not having to face his biggest in-season rivals at Nationals. Another one I would have liked to have seen would have been Corey Cooperman versus Nate Gallick. Coop had clearly distanced himself from the field other than Ware and Gallick his last 2 years. While it was aparent that Ware had Coop's number, we never get to see him up against Gallick.
  4. I'm not 100% sure I'm remembering correctly, but I believe it was Trenge I heard it from.
  5. Troy Letters was incredibly strong. I always thought this one armed high crotch to a lift was a pretty amazing feat, especially considering the competition. https://youtu.be/Tw6comzsnOY?t=08m46s I also remember hearing that Cael Sanderson was easily the strongest guy in his weight class his senior year at 197.
  6. 125 2018 Lee Suriano Tomasello Lizak Cruz Rivera Bresser Moisey 3 Champions 6 Finalists 15 all American placments. That's by the end of the tournament and not taking into account future accomplishments.
  7. Jon Trenge would would be the answer for me. Watching him wrestle Sanderson hit home just how good Sanderson was. Would have also loved to see Coop and Zink win one. As for Letters I would have liked to see him as a multiple timer, but I think you're forgetting about:

  9. I doubt that alone would prevent anyone from signing. However, walking into a beautiful wrestling facility on a recruiting trip, versus walking into a practice room that looks like your high school room, would probably make some sort of impact.
  10. I wrestled Greg Strobel in the Lehigh room a few times around 2000. I remember thinking that everything he did hurt and made it difficult to breathe. His turk was particularly brutal. I can only imagine what it must have been like to wrestle him when he was competing.
  11. Frick also wrestled up at 150 for Midlands that year where he beat Churella 7-1 in the semis and lost 4-3 to Galea in the finals. Yalga took 3rd in the bracket avenging his earlier loss to Churella.
  12. From the video it looks as though the whistle came mid throw, with DeLuca airborne, when a takedown seems unavoidable. Assuming they were not out of bounds, the referee would be left with making the choice between two bad calls: His early whistle that prevented an unavoidable takedown, or an unavoidable takedown that finished after his early whistle.
