behind the likes of Kevin Jackson, Joe Warren, and Chris Taylor, among others.(blanking on other world medalists). He's one of the best ever from Michigan while in high school but once you add in international accolades, he falls down the rankings.

Andre Metzger, IIRC

Illinois - Joe Williams for the old heads and for the OOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD heads, Larry Kristoff.

Wrong. JW was phenomenal though.

Metzger is such a badass he made it to the semifinals of the Olympic Trials after he turned 50. Can't remember if it was Greco or FS.

With all that singlet pulling, Henson SHOULD have been the Olympic Gold medalist..

My answer was based on international wrestling, so I'm making the assumption that was the intent of the thread -- otherwise it would be on the college board. 


Don't work here no more. Happy now?

Andre was a badass for sure, but he went 0-2 at the 2012 Olympic Trials challenge tournament in Greco-Roman.

New York.  Nickerson?  This is a hard one.

 

For high school, Nickerson no doubt.  Overall, maybe Jesse Jantzen or Carl Adams.  Hard to argue against Nick Gwiazdowski, tbh, and he isn't even done yet.

Just to clarify, Pa state titles are valued higher than Olympic and World Gold?

I vote yes!

Only if you're delusional and from PA.

I was thinking total career.

That said, given what Jason Bryant mentions previously, does Terry's single Olympic gold trump Kristoff's three silvers and two bronze? Should sustained success be rewarded in this case?

Kolat was the best to ever come out of PA.  Period.  He may not have the hardware, but he was absolutely, monumentally screwed multiple times on the International scene.

 

All you need to do is go to FLO and watch their Kolat special if you disagree.  After that, I will truly be surprised if you still want to put someone from PA ahead of him!

South Dakota would have to be either Lincoln McIlravy or Randy Lewis, with the Scheer brothers and Dennis Koslowski a bit behind.
