Let's hear the hype!  I watched NJ States and will be in Hershey.  Anyone know of any predictions or guys to watch?

First full round of Class 2A is in the books. Not too much in the way of upsets except maybe at 152 a 31-1 wrestler who won the SE regional  lost this morning.

Found this little nugget about a Penn State 2 timer helping out an Ohio State recruit. Part of what makes this sport great.

 

Quote: Had a great conversation with Gavin Hoffman about going out to the 4M Club to work with Quentin Wright and Luke McGonigal ... Probably won't make the paper for a bit, but Gavin credited going there with helping to take his wrestling to another level

No, I was not there. Work day. I have off today and I am going to try to head over for some action.

Sasso - USA 1 -    PA States 2, (lost to Lee) 3, t ,? Full ride to Ohio State. Went up a weight at Beast to wrestle USA #1 at 52, lost 5-3 to USA # 1 David Carr. He is great fun to watch, good kid too.

Absolutely wrong call. The move was legal and would have become potentially dangerous. The top wrestler was not pulling the arm up off the opponent's back, which would constitute the illegal hammerlock. It's the same wrist on the back tilt that Nolf has gone to over the past few years. While it can turn potentially dangerous if the arm passes 90 degrees or comes off the back, it is far from an illegal move.

 

A very INCOMPETENT call. Koser was robbed, and Cathedral Prep should be ashamed of putting points for the team trophy ahead of integrity.

I hate to tell you but the 90 degree point and the pulling of the arm off the back are both the exact definitions of illegality for that move. Someone sent in other pictures of the move (I didn't see them) which made it perfectly clear that the arm was off the back. The picture was not clear about the angle but the ref only had to be right about either one of the two.

Unless you were the referee or there's some pictures that prove beyond any doubt, we'll never know for sure. What bothers me is he couldn't continue in that match but then shows up to wrestle his next match. That is BS!

Anyone else surprised Bethlehem Catholic has only 1 semifinalist?

You can follow the 3A semi finals here. The 160 match just ended and apparently Starocci won via a flash TD that the blogger deemed "controversial".

Which then makes the move potentially dangerous. This move is used by numerous wrestlers throughout the season, but we all know the rules change when you get to states. Fast stall calls, fleeing the mat, etc. None called the same as during the regular season.

Still a terrible call and glad to see Koser pin the kid in the 2nd period in the Consi semis.

And after the match was over, the prep kid shook hands with the other kid, the other coaches and then went to the stands where the York fans were and they shook hands with each other for a while.

Illegal is illegal. Illegal isn’t potentially dangerous. Clear distinction. Once the arm comes off the back, or breaks the 90 degree mark, it becomes illegal. To call it anything other than that is poor officiating. In this case the ref made the right call. Your beef should be with the kid not continuing, not with the official who made the call in accordance with the rules.

Best wrestler in the tournament imo, Gavin Hoffman. Next best in no particular order imo were/are Hidlay, Sasso, Anderson Teasdale, and Hillegas.

Teasdale might be cutting too much. He is showing the classic signs of a tired wrestler.

I was there - terrible call.  Then Koser pinned the kid in the first period in wrestlebacks.

That is pretty remarkable. Speaks to the parity of the state I guess. NJ had an awful lot of private schools in the finals with Bergen winning 3 titles alone.
