*** 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!

Exeter’s Austin DeSanto majors 4-time state champ in Pennsylvania's loss to Team USA at the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic

Exeter’s Austin DeSanto did it again, this time at the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic.

Fresh off an improbable win over Franklin Regional three-time world champion Spencer Lee at the PIAA wrestling championships, DeSanto hung an 18-5 major decision on Justin Mejia, a four-time state champion from Clovis (Calif.) High School. Mejia just became the second wrestler in California history to win four state titles.

DeSanto entered the weekend ranked No. 4 nationally at 126 pounds, while Mejia checked in at No. 3. DeSanto is a Drexel commit; Mejia will wrestle at Illinois.

DeSanto turned the match into a blowout early with two takedowns in the first period, three more in the second and a final push for eight points in the third period.

DeSanto reversed Mejia early in the third and spent most of the period riding him out, turning him for three nearfall points with 17 seconds remaining. Mejia shook loose from that position, but DeSanto pushed to the buzzer, as he usually does, with his sixth takedown of the match.

He brought the Fitzgerald Field House crowd to its feet and gave Pennsylvania a 13-12 lead at the time, but Team USA stormed back for a 28-20 win. For his efforts, DeSanto was named Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Wrestler.

“I’m kind of mad at myself that I rode him on top and only scored three points,” DeSanto told FloWrestling after the match. “[I have to] get back in the room and start working on every position.”

DeSanto had a big-time supporter in his corner in Lee, who was Pennsylvania’s honorary captain after a knee injury sidelined him from action. Lee cheered on DeSanto two weeks after DeSanto handed him the first loss of his prep career, 6-5, in the 126-pound state finals. DeSanto scored the winning takedown at the buzzer in that one.

Lee's support wasn’t lost on DeSanto.

“Spencer Lee is awesome,” DeSanto told FloWrestling. “He gave me a confidence boost I could beat this kid. He’s just a nice kid all around. I really like him. I feel like he’s going to come back like 10 times stronger and surprise a lot of people.”

Team Pennsylvania won back-to-back matches to open the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic as Huntingdon’s Jacob Oliver scored a wild decision over Jake Allar of St. Michael (Minn.) in the opening bout at 160 pounds. Bethlehem Catholic’s Mikey Labriola scored a late takedown to take a 3-2 decision from Kaleb Romero of Mechanicsburg (Ohio).

Team USA won the next four straight matches before Brookville’s Gavin Park scored a big upset at 106 pounds with a 10-5 win over Brandon Courtney of Desert Edge, Ariz. DeSanto kept the momentum going with his 18-5 win over Mejia, but the USA stars won three of the next four bouts to secure a 28-20 win.

One of the match’s final turning points came in the second-to-last bout at 145 pounds, when Austin O’Connor of Saint Rita (Ill.) turned a tight contest into a fall over Hempfield Area’s Jared Verkleeren. O’Connor won the Turning Point Award for that win, which stretched the Team USA lead to 28-17 with one bout to go.

My brother is wrestling in Dodge City, Kansas today... Southern Plains Regionals. Never been there before and am completely unfamiliar with that tournament and city... Anyone ever been there? Is it near Kansas City? I'm going to be stuck at home watching the live feed on track wrestling.

Dodge City is in Western Kansas. It smells like shit - literally. Lots of cattle and 2 cattle processing plants in Dodge. I drive through there twice a year to go to Colorado for vacation. Not my favorite spot on the map...

Ugh, not even close to KC... And Dodge City isn't big, but once your in the gym, my experience is that it's pretty-much the same.

World Championships alert.

6 medals in Men's Freestyle for the USA World Team (8 weight classes). They are in a tight team race with Russia, who only has 5 medalists. Check out today's medal matches on the Olympic Channel (624 directv;148 dish) at noon CT. Team race could come down to Kyle Snyder vs. Sadulaev. Both were Olympic gold medalists in Rio and are easily Top 5 P4P in the world. USA needs to win 2 of 3 gold medal matches to clinch.

USA FS wrestling is back to top tier!

Going for Gold today:
Jordan Burroughs
James Green
Kyle Snyder

Yesterday's results:
J'Den- Bronze
Gilman- Silver
Gwiz- Bronze

other results:
Stieber: 1-2 DNP
Retherford: 1-1 DNP
