Illinois, 2002-2004. I coach a jr high team now, 85-17 in 5 years placed 3,6,4,4, and 2nd this past season. had 5 kids make the finals, came up short that round with only 1 champ but have a legit contender for a team title this up coming season(2 returning finalist). went to a powerhouse HS team, nationally ranked for the last decade. Illinois just destroyed Fargo, if you're familiar with that national tournament. Good luck to your sons, its a great sport. 2nd only to boxing of course haha
That's cool man. You probably know who Jimmy Kennedy is? I am from Pennsylvania(the powerhouse of wrestling) haha. Our school was so close to winning a state team title 2 and 3 years ago. It was heartbreaking to see how close they came. We got 3rd three years ago and the following year we were 28-0 and a good kid got expelled and we lost in semi-s by like 3 points to the eventual winner. But the last few years we had many individual state placers and one kid was a two time state champ and set the all-time PA record with wins in his career. His last two years he went like 108-1, Colin Shober.
I have been following some college wrestling now along with high school. You ever watch that Chance Marstellar wrestle from PA? He will become the greatest ever, never seen anything like him, and he is only in 10th grade. He has beating numerous state champs since 7th grade in tournaments. He just won Fargo in Greco and FS and in all his matches NO one even scored a single point on him!
