Logan Stieber two redshirts?

Recommended Posts

Maybe not the oldest, but certainly most red shirts.

 

If my math is correct, Danny Hodge (the original Hodge winner) was 27 when he won his 3rd title.

Dan Hodge was about 24 years and 10 months when he won his third title in 1957. (Birthdate: May 13, 1932)

Does this make him the oldest Hodge winner?

Steve Mocco was the oldest junior to win Hodge Trophy at age of 23 years and 3 months. He would have been the oldest Hodge Trophy winner during senior season, had he not lost to King Conrad at age of 24 years and 3 months. Edited by Buckeyebison

Who's currently the oldest Hodge trophy winner?

Damn new math. Or is it old age? Or did I unconsciously add 2 red shirt years? Must have just wanted Mr Hodge to have been 27yrs. Can't help but wonder how he would have done if MMA had been around.

I don't see this discussion as being principally about Stieber as much as it is about holding kids back creating a benefit for them. 

 

The article from years ago about Kolat said that his Dad told him to deliberately fail the eighth grade (early 90s Sports Illustrated). 

 

In any case, those who seem affronted by the idea that there is some advantage to being older and think its irrelevant to the sport might want to communicate that to all the coaches who redshirt kids.  Apparently they haven't heard.  :)

In college a redshirt can make sense to acclimate athletes to a new coach, teammates, culture, etc. At the HS level for some it makes sense to give a year to physically mature and or provide another year of training. I doubt Kolat needed that extra year. As for Stieber, I don't give a rats turd. He still had to beat some good wrestlers.
