2008 149 most stacked weight since I've been paying attention to NCAA.

 

NJ states one year had 4 D1 college all-americans, a two-time NCAA champ and a slew of other guys with great HS credentials. And another year with two 2-time NCAA champs and another all-american.

 

I'm sure PA states has had some absurd weights.

2001 Senior Nationals at 119 was pretty solid.

 

1st place 119: Joseph Dubuque, Bloomfield, N.J., d. Ricky LaForge, Oakland, N.J., 6-5.

3rd place 119: Nick Simmons, Williamston, Mich., d. Nate Gallick, Tucson, Ariz., 5-3 OT.

5th place 119: Travis Lee, Honolulu, Hawaii, d. Shawn Bunch, Leavenworth, Kan., 7-1.

7th place119: Jacob Palomino, San Jose, Calif., m.d. Drew Opfer, Sandusky, Ohio, 15-3.

 

Edit: Two guys who didn't place in this bracket but had respectable college achievements were Tom Clum and Grant Nakamura.

Kind of off topic, but seeing Jon Burns and Anthony Valles on here...what ever happened to them? I now Valles was at Iowa State and Burns at Nebraska/North Carolina, but where did they end up?

Not the biggest, nor baddest but still a pretty solid one based on what some of the place winners and one non placewinner did in college.

 

2005 145lb class at NHSCA Senior Nationals

 

1st Place: Dustin Schlatter: 1x NCAA Champ, 3x AA

2nd Place: Brent Metcalf: 2x NCAA Champ, 3x Finalist

3rd Place: Gregor Gillespie: 1x NCAA Champ, 4x AA

5th Place: Chase Pami: 1x NCAA Runner-up, 2x AA

 

DNP: Mike Cannon: 3x AA

 

Schlatter, Gillespie, and Metcalf all won the 149lb weight class at NCAA's 06-08 right in a row after graduating HS in 2005.

one of my favorite NCAA brackets was 126 in 1989.

1st Kendall Cross- ended up 1x champ, 3 x AA, 2 time Olympian, 1 Oly GOLD

2nd Michael Stokes - his credentials are probably overall the worst in the top 8, but he beat defending champ Martin to get his 1 and only AA here.

3rd Jim Martin- defending champ and eventual 4 time AA: 4th, 2nd, 1st, 3rd.

4th Tom Brands - 4 x AA, 3 x champ, World champ, Oly GOLD

5th Peter Gonzales - 2 x D1 AA, 4 x D3 AA, 2 x D3 champ

6th Jason Kelber - 3 x AA, 2 xx finalist, 1 x champ

7th Gary McCall - 3 x AA

8th John Epperly - 2 x AA

 

so overall career stats for top 8:

2 Oly Golds

1 World Gold

4 guys won D1, 6 overall championships

22 D1 AA finishes

 

and not just the hardware and familiar names. From quarters on this one was a war:

Rd of 8 scores: 5-3, 4-3, 11-5, 8-8/3-2 OT

Semis: 2-2/2-2 OT Criteria 4, 1-0

Finals were a blow out comparitively, 5-2

Consi semis were 6-6/1-0 OT and 2-1

3rd place bout 6-5

I think 2001 119 had both more college AA finishes and NCAA titles.

 

Lee, 2x champ, 3x AA

Bunch, 2x AA

Simmons, 4x AA

Gallick, 1x champ, 3x AA

Dubuque, 2x champ, 3x AA

 

That's not counting Clum or Nakamura, I'm not sure how many AA finishes they had between them either.
