    Calm down Bluesdad. Preseason rankings mean nothing. How about your kid wins a few high school matches before you get your panties in a wad about stupid rankings. Dont be one of those dads, it’s not cool

    Spend today in New York with Ranger, Ryan, and Mason. We watched them wrestling at Cornell. Mason ended up with a second place finish and Ryan took 4th. Really proud of both the boys and their transition into college wrestling. We also watched Sean Fausz take a second place finish at the U23’s and Trent Johnson finish with a second place finish as well. Awesome to see KY boys make some noise at the next level. Good luck to all the Kentucky wrestlers as the season begins in the bluegrass state. Go kick some butt!!

    Jason thanks again for your hard work. Some people don’t realize the time and effort you put into this. #earnednevergiven

    Blues Dad asked a simple question. No need to get all fired up on either side. He seems to be a humble parent. He never said, " my kid is number 1!!!, and he can beat all y'all!!!" Lol. The rankings will change quite a bit once the regular season gets rolling.

    During post season I had the privilege of coaching the MS National Dual Team. So I’ll focus on the freshman class. I agree with Dr Baker on his list. Some freshman that I think will make a run and are hungry. Levid Rodriquez from JC will be a beast to contend with the next 4 years, you’ll get to know his name! Kolby Koepp from McCracken is hard working and has a lot of talent. Jo-el Hatchett with St X has some raw talent and funk. He’ll be fun to watch. Issac Thorton will take Grant County back to state this year and should be on a mission. Although he wasn’t able to go with us, Blue Fletcher also with JC is a bull. Depending on where he falls in weight,will be interesting as he looks like he continues to get big. Spencer Moore fitting into WV line up,at most likely 106, will have a great freshman year. And, I may be bias but I also think Noah Duke and Cole Thomas from Ryle could have a solid year. All in all, we have so many great kids with talent throughout the state and these are just a few of the great freshman. Good luck to all of these young men and woman as they start another grind!!!

    I'm sure kids are still out of place. It is getting closer, if you see a kid that has grown let me know. Out of all the weights 140 is a train wreck and I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it. Have patience it will work itself out. It looks like McCracken is the team to beat with Ryle a close second. This is the first time I have been able to put a female on top of a weight class. Congrats to Olivia Messerly on a impressive win over Jonathan Gilbert yesterday. 11-18 Rankings.pdf

    Both great wrestlers. I forgot Reese was only a freshman. Dylan Preston, Stephen Little, Trayce Eckman with UC, Devon Herron. There’s just a lot of great freshman that are coming out. Maybe is the personal connections but the young men and women that wrestle and Kentucky are some of the greatest kids out there. Almost every team has the state champion in the making, in their room.

    Some results from Elkhorn this weekend. A couple weight changes, a couple more Freshmen removed. Next week I'll try to figure out the top 5 teams. 11-25 rankings.pdf

    I’ve got an idea. What if we just didn’t have rankings? It’s not like we don’t know who the top/good wrestlers across the state. :-) But, if they’re deemed important, and since most everything is in track nowadays, you would think there would be a program that could compile rankings (based on reported matches) instead of coaches/dads volunteering hours compiling this information only to inevitably get criticized.

    Don’t talk to me about this “Brad Calipari” hash tag crap about earned never given. We drove 2 hours one way “4 hours all together” 3 days a week last year just so Blue could practice and wrestle middle school last year because his school didn’t offer it. He works his tail off and he has never been given anything. He’s earned everything hes accomplished in 3 sports and academics. Ive never tried to take anything away from Jason. He works his tail off and does a great job. In fact I send him information about kids in my area to help him with his rankings. I know how hard of a job he has with his rankings. Jason is a good guy and does a great job and I never said other wise. So to say I said other wise is nonsense.

    80% are moving up. Lots to keep an eye on. A few incoming freshman will quickly leave marks: Little, Duke, Rodriquez, Giannone, and Thomas.

    TCHS will be hosting an individual tournament for boys and girls that will run concurrently. The boys tournament is full at this point. I have attached the flyer. My best guess right now (which is still fairly early), we will have approximately 20 girls coming to compete. Hopefully more. We will have 5 mats and depending on the girls participation, we will have 3 mats for the boys and 2 mats for the girls. That’s the goal, anyway. The rules for the girls are the same as the boys - 7th-12th grade, must be certified via track, and will be folkstyle. This tournament will double as a food drive for our local food bank to help them replenish after the holiday season. Hope to see you all there! My best form of contact is via email - Ben.ellard@taylor.kyschools.us
