They have the resources to bring in good recruits and coaches. 

 

And expose them to competition anywhere in the country year-round. That's important for developing HS athletes. 

 

Definitely not an apples to apples comparison.

Just like I said here:


Their first season of real success (read as: they weren't a total joke) was my senior year, 05-06. They had other good wrestlers, mostly lightweights, but McMullen was the one of whom I took notice. McMullen was a freshman that year and wrestled 215. I was a weight below but wrestled up a lot if the opposing team had a good 215er. He was giving some damn good local 215ers problems and sometimes edging them out, a lot of the same guys I went against so naturally I took notice. I was wondering where the hell this kid came from and then I found out he was a Lehigh Valley guy who was recruited to come up to Sem. Now that have 2 assistant coaches who were NCAA qualifiers and successful D1 wrestlers in Steve Mytych and Joe Rovelli. This is a prime example of why, top to bottom, public schools aren't able to compete with them. They have the resources to bring in good recruits and coaches.


Sounds like someone got his butt kicked by a prep school kid

Only ever wrestled one and it was in junior high. So no.

Actually, it sounds like a pretty accurate description of Wyoming Seminary's rise.
