Best year ever in terms of overall talent?

Recommended Posts

I'm approaching this from a statistical perspective, but 2012 seems pretty remarkable to me:

 

125:

Matt McDonough

1/2/1/DNP

Jesse Delgado

7/1/1/TBD

 

Others: Sanders, Megaludis

 

133:

Jordan Oliver

4/1/2/1

Tony Ramos

DNW/3/2/1

Logan Stieber

1/1/1/TBD

 

Others: Devin Carter, Chris Dardanes

 

141:

Kellen Russell

DNP/7/1/1

Kendric Maple

DNP/4/1/7

 

Others: Hunter Stieber, Montel Marion, Boris Novachkov

 

149:

Frank Molinaro

8/5/2/1

 

Others: Dylan Ness

 

157:

Kyle Dake

1/1/1/1

Derrick St. John

4/2/1/5

 

Others: James Green

 

165:

David Taylor

2/1/2/1

 

174:

Ed Ruth

3/1/1/1

Chris Perry

R12/3/1/1

 

184

Steve Bosak

DNP/4/1/3

Quentin Wright

6/1/2/1

 

197:

Cam Simaz

8/3/3/1

 

HVY

Nelson

7/1/1/2

Rey

R12/3/1/2

Gwiazdowski

8/1/TBD/TBD

 

 

This year had Delgado, Oliver, Stieber, Dake, Taylor, and Ruth in it, all of whom are likely to go down as all-time greats, and Gwiazdowski has a chance to go for three titles now as well.

 

Rounding out the "Second Tier" were a bunch of guys who were ONLY two time champions McDonough, Russell, Perry, Wright, Nelson

 

Then we have a lot of guys who had stellar careers but only ended up with one title: Ramos, Maple, Molinaro, St. John, Bosak, Simaz and Rey

 

FINALLY, there are still some guys who have another year or two left that have a shot at winning a title still: Megaludis, Devin Carter, Schopp, Port, H. Stieber, Ness, and Green (And I'm sure a few others that I am forgetting)

 

2013 might end up being even better since you'd add Dieringer, Garret, and Kilgore, but you'd lose a few of the seniors such as russell

Of the 8 champions in 1950, 4 were 3X champs, 1 was a 4X AA & 2X champ and another was an Olympic Gold medalist and 2X NCAA champ. All 6 of those guys are in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. Pretty good year.
