First in ... Mister Gable Steveson. What a performance. Threat to win gold. Probably the biggest single-year leap I've ever seen a heavyweight make at his level. He went from competitive with Gwiz to Gwiz's father in about 9 or so months.

Shorter.  Didn't they have a tight match in December?

Fair enough!

I think Gable could've won bigger but kept it conservative to get the monkey of a win off his back. Then he let it fly on everyone and anyone thereafter.

So excited for Mister Jordan Oliver. I've been a huge fan of his since HS and especially in college. It was very frustrating to follow his senior FS career to say the least, but this is a sweet moment for JO and his fans. Looked conditioned, tactically smart, solid position at all times, and has not lost a step in speed or power. On to qualify the weight now and get that medal in Tokyo.

Gable may be our best wrestler already

It's hard for me to agree after watching Dake keep JB to a meaningless final period stepout point in two straight wins. May is the key word, I suppose. 

I agree, Dake would be a fair answer also.

From NLWC

Gilman, Champ

DT, he'll be champ

Snyder, Champ

Nickal, runner up and alternate

Nick Lee, 2nd alternate

Jason Nolf, 2nd alternate

Helen Maroulis is at the NLWC now, too. For how boring State College is, they really have a hell of a roster. Great showing this weekend.

This thread is about the team, and top 3 make the "team". 
Actually, it's about Olympic team, which is the reps. I believe the other guys are considered part of the national team, which is a different thing.
