*** Official Youth, High School, College and International Wrestling Thread ***

I can't be the only wrestling fan on this site. In fact, I know I that's not the case. The almighty king of n00bs, Sorter, is a wrestling fan. I figure there could be more.....????

Discuss anything wrestling related:

Youth wrestling: Heck, wrestling in Iowa has a rabid Youth wrestling scene...I lived through it, my younger brother lived through it and my brothers who are 15 and 13 are living through it, well the 13 year old is anyway...he's in high school. The 13 year old is a 7th grader who has been wrestling since he was 5 years old and has accumulated 4 state championships since his second grade year...a total badass. Believe it or not, Iowa has a youth wrestling forum that is hopping...even during the summer. Iowans take this stuff seriously. I'm assuming other states have rabid youth followings, for when I watch my bros at National tourneys, we are constantly running into kids and super clubs from other states that are amazing. Ironically, one of the biggest youth tourneys our club hits annually is the Park Hill Individual and Dual tournament...which to my knowledge is in Kansas City (I've never attended that one). Do any of you have kids who are wrestling? If so, how are they doing?

High School Wrestling: High school and college wrestling in Iowa is big... we are known for it, ask AC Slater. State tournament is a big, televised event at the Wells Fargo dome...you will see probably 10 times more spectators at state wrestling in Iowa then any other high school sporting event in Iowa. With some of the crazy talent I have seen/wrestled against at Fargo Nationals, I am assuming that it's either on the rise or just as big in other states as well... What are your thoughts on some of the high school wrestlers and/or teams out there?

College Wrestling: Hell, you Missourians semi-recently had those Askren brothers. I've never met Max, but have met Ben. He was the celebrity guest at Iowa Grade School State one year...he signed autographs and handed the medals and wall charts to all of the kids on the podium that year, which was cool because my youngest brother won it that year and was able to get his championship singlet signed by him. I was with my brother when he approached him....Askren struck me as a funny, goofy type of dude. I don't know Max, but someone posted his blog on an Iowa wrestling message board and the dude seems like a character. I know there are some Oklahomans' who post on this board. Anyone see Okie State defeat Iowa this past weekend? Iowa's first dual loss of the year. Anyone have any thoughts on college wrestling?

International Wrestling: Any of you have any thoughts on the international wrestling scene? Future Olympians, future Olympic champs, future World champs, Greco, Freestyle, etc.?

Wrestling Memories/General Discussion: Any of you have any memories you'd like to share from your personal experience(s) of wrestling when you were in youth, high school or college? Any opinions on females wrestling with males. Last year, a girl named Megan Black made history in Iowa by placing at state. Do you believe females should be able to wrestle with males at that age? Any thoughts on weight cutting? What are some of the most memorable matches to you? Who are your favorite wrestlers? One match that always sticks out to me is this:



Crazy match.

My favorite wrestler (besides my bros and former teammates) of all time is ironically not an Iowan. I don't really have a favorite team in wrestling...I root for individuals. It's a dude from Ohio that I initially hated because I didn't like the way he conducted himself after a match vs. my brother in the national duals when he and my brother were Seniors in High School, in which he defeated my brother. Kid was cocky. He and my brother both went on to wrestle D1, so I followed him since I knew who he was. I ended up becoming a huge fan of the kid's style...the kid could hit cradles from ANY position. He went on to win 2 National titles for Ohio State...and did so both years as an underdog, for he'd lose quite a few silly matches during the season, presumably due to his risky, but dangerous style that worked well for him at NCAA Nationals. It's a dude named Jeff Jaggers. First vid is what really put his name on the map as a high school wrestler. 2nd vid is his 1st NCAA championship as a Junior, in a match where he was a huge underdog, broke his ankle during the match and gutted it out and won. My favorite wrestlers tend to be the ones who are risk takers or brawlers...not afraid to be aggressive or take chances. I can't stand stallish wrestlers who are successful as hell simply because they don't open up and therefore don't give up points and score their own points by capitalizing on the other wrestler's aggression. Boring.






So what ya got?

Note: I have been posting on wrestling message boards for 12 years and I (and I'm sure everyone else involved with the sport) have heard every wrestling joke (rolling around with men, etc.) imaginable, but if ya want to clown on the sport, shoot... it was inevitable to happen anyways on CP, so have at it!

Disgusting
Un****ing believable. Mark my words, I will never, EVER watch the Olympics again if this actually is followed through with...which I'm assuming it will be. Disgusting is exactly right. What sport has a more ancient Olympic tradition/history than wrestling? None. Unbelievable. I'm ****ing irate about this.

On a sidenote, I saw that Roddy White was pissed about this as well. Had no idea he was a wrestling fan. I already liked him before for he kicked ass on my fantasy team when I needed him to the few times I've had him, but his tweets regarding wrestling solidified him as a "good dude" in my book.

REALLY?!?!?! I had no clue and wouldn't have ever guessed.

We have a kid in our state, looking to be a 4 time state champ this weekend named Jake Marlin, from Creston. This kid has been the epitome of dominant...just thrashes everyone. Gets positive momentum going and just keeps piling it on. Unbelievable wrestler. Ironically, the only kid who stands a remote chance of standing in his way is my hometown/high school's 138 lber Drew Foster...who is undefeated this year, placed 3rd last year, and was extremely consistent in terms of winning big tournaments since he was a Kindergartener. Won it as a K, 1st, 2nd, 6th, 7th and 8th grader and placed 3rd as a Sophomore last season. The two are speculated to meet second round...in the quarterfinals. It will be interesting to see if he can "go" with him for Iowa wrestling fans have already pretty much dubbed Marlin "unbeatable."

HOWEVER. He apparently ISN'T unbeatable for he has a loss on his record this year. When I researched as to who this loss was to, I found out that he was PINNED in the 2nd period vs. a Missouri kid. Do you have any idea who this may have been against? Takes a total monster to pin Marlin. I'll probably "track" it...haven't done that yet.

Jake Marlin is a great kid to boot... and has a very fun style to watch. I'll be rooting against him enthusiastically in the quarters, but if he beats us, I hope he reels in that 4th state title.

Just found it... he was pinned at the "Kansas City Stampede" (of all places) by a kid from Blue Springs named Daniel Lewis.

Lewis is pretty solid. Should have a chance to place pretty high at Jrs this summer

I saw that when he beat Marlin, he had a loss on his record.

Good God there are some monsters out there.

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of wrestler is Lewis? Like, what type of build/style? Our guy is a lanky, but extremely intelligent type....I've never really seen Marlin struggle with the type of guy we have there, but I hope Foster changes that.

Long, pretty solid on the mat. Wrestles more like a PA kid IMO. Really nasty cradles on top.

My 7th grade brother placed 5th at the big daddy of youth state wrestling tournaments this weekend (AAU). He was at 100 lbs. I was pretty excited about this, for it was one of the most stacked weights in the tourney, due to many kids cutting to 100 lbs to dodge a phenom at 105 named Ryan Leisure. Not to mention, he was the ONLY 7th grader to place in the bracket. Couldn't be happier for him.

Meanwhile, I recently learned how to convert VHS tapes to DVDs and upload DVD clips to a computer. On the wrestling forum I post at frequently, I posted this video of me wrestling in the consolation semifinals at state when I was in high school. I had just been beaten in the semis by the eventual 3 time state champion who wrestled for the Hawkeyes the following year (Cole Pape) and if I were to win, I would be going for 3rd and 4th (and face the guy who I pinned in :54 in 2nd round, who eventually wrestled all the way back for 3rd place) and if I were to lose, I would be going for 5th and 6th. I don't know if this video will be as funny to some of you as it is on the wrestling site, for the people on the wrestling site know me personally and through wrestling along with my opponent who is notorious for having 1 move that you will see in the video....a move that he was somehow successful with in high school and the D3 collegiate level.

I am the one in the black and orange....posting this video is pretty self-deprecating.



Wasn't that ugly? In 20-something years of wrestling, I had been caught in two headlocks EVER...one of them was in Junior High and the other one was THAT one!?!?! It literally looked like the type of headlock you'd seen executed by a Kindergartener...and only a Kindergartener would fall for it. Ironically, I threw a fit similar to the ones you will see Kindergarteners throw, when I walked to my coach's side in the corner of the mat...and this fit continued for like 20 minutes after the match. I was so pissed off. I felt like I had some good momentum going....and DID have it going and was stopped by the world's ugliest, slowest headlock ever. I think it was the fact that he threw it left-handed that threw me off...which is also ironic because I was notorious myself for having an effective left-handed headlock...in fact, I pinned two guys at the tourney with it and I show my variation to our youth/high school teams in which they've coined it, "the Rico."

For 5 years I couldn't think about or speak about this match and if someone brought it up to me, I'd get all pissy. I was all sorts of butt-hurt. However, 12 years later, I can finally laugh at it...or at least let others laugh at my expense to it.

UGLY, UGLY, UGLY......

Very cool, I don't even know him and I'm proud of him. I have a guy who works for me (albeit indirectly) but his kid just won on OK... So cool to see. based on his size and style, I'm trying to get him up here to work with some folks I know who can take some of is talent even farther.

But I still can't believe the IOC. What a group of super dumb ****ers!

He missed a lot of fleeing calls, and never even offered a warning. Both great wrestlers, but I think the official wanted to be a little bit of the outcome too.

But a great match nonetheless...

Kyle Dake beats David Taylor tonight in finals at 165# to become only the third 4 time national champion and the first to do it at 4 different weights. I was there and saw it in person. Crowd was electric and Dake got a standing O after the match. Just an incredible career. Kudos Kyle Dake!!!! You gave wrestling a shot in the arm when it needed one by going head to head with David Taylor instead of wrestling a much easier weight at 157.
