    2018 All Star Classic + Gabe Dean Clinic

    Yes. Clinic is open to anyone and everyone. If your club/Team will be bringing a group please let me know either through email/text/private message so we can make sure we have adequate mat space. Hope to see a large group come out to meet and learn from Coach Dean then stay to watch some great wrestling.

    2018 All Star Classic + Gabe Dean Clinic

    Sometimes we like to include a match in the All Star Classic to give a young up and comer a shot to show us where they may stand in the pecking order. Such is the case for this match at 160. Brayden Giannone has been a hammer coming through the MS ranks and is sitting at #4 right now for Lafayette, but we haven’t seen him in HS competition just yet. In a few weeks we will see him tested against one of the highest returning state placers at the weight in #3 ranked Clayton Boyd From Conner. All Star Matchups:  GFS - Messerly v Walton 106 - #1 Thomas v #14 @ 113 Moore 113 - #2 Fowler v #4 Andreoni 120/126 - #5 Grandstaff v #1 Deck 126 - #3 Lutes v #4 Preston  132 - #2 Merritt v #4 Grandstaff 138 - #1 Yost v #3 Insko  138 - #2 Deck v #5 Spalding  145 - #2 Rivera v #3 Wheeler  145/152 - #1 Lawrence v #1 Andreoni  152/160 - #2 Newberry v #5 Brooks 160 - #3 Boyd v #4 Giannone  182 - #1 Mulcahy v #2 Blanton
  3. Shooting for next week once I have the all star 100% nailed down. Still have 2 last issues to clear up and we are all set. Incoming freshman are tough. Some will still NOT make the list for a couple reasons. Kids who competed for clubs won’t usually show up until I have a clear indication of which HS they are attending. Also, unless they have some HS match reference to gauge where they fall I hesitate to guess. But don’t fret, it only takes a week or two of wrestling and they find their way in.

    126-138 is consistently the deepest weight range in the state. Here is another good 126 matchup for the All Star Classic with returning state placers in #3 ranked Seth Lutes of Scott taking on #4 ranked Dylan Preston of Woodford Co. All Star Matchups:  GFS - Messerly v Walton 106 - #1 Thomas v #14 @ 113 Moore 113 - #2 Fowler v #4 Andreoni 120/126 - #5 Grandstaff v #1 Deck 126 - #3 Lutes v #4 Preston 132 - #2 Merritt v #4 Grandstaff 138 - #1 Yost v #3 Insko 138 - #2 Deck v #5 Spalding 145 - #2 Rivera v #3 Wheeler  145/152 - #1 Lawrence v #1 Andreoni  152/160 - #2 Newberry v #5 Brooks    182 - #1 Mulcahy v #2 Blanton

    Also, coaches, parents, wrestlers please do me a favor. Please let me know if you/your kids plan to attend the clinic with Coach Dean prior to the dual. I just need to get a general head count to make sure we are prepared and make it the best experience for you all. So post below with how many your are bringing/are coming or contact me offline for those of you who have my contact info.

    To finish off our 138 matchups, our recent IHPO champ and #2 ranked Gentry Deck will face a former state placer who is coming down a weight from 145 last year in Tristan Spalding. All Star Matchups:  GFS - Messerly v Walton 106 - #1 Thomas v #14 @ 113 Moore 113 - #2 Fowler v #4 Andreoni 120/126 - #5 Grandstaff v #1 Deck 132 - #2 Merritt v #4 Grandstaff 138 - #1 Yost v #3 Insko 138 - #2 Deck v #5 Spalding 145 - #2 Rivera v #3 Wheeler 145/152 - #1 Lawrence v #1 Andreoni  152/160 - #2 Newberry v #5 Brooks   182 - #1 Mulcahy v #2 Blanton

    Yep. Jake has always had the ability to beat anyone. He just needs to put it all together through the entire season and he will be more than a handful.

    And to address your question somewhat seriously, Yost has the accolades to hold the top spot even after a close loss. He has won it all in Lexington and was just in the finals last year. This weekend just showed us that a few others want to make sure we know they are going to have a little say in how this goes down. In fact Chase and Jake have had a few barnburners through the years. A lot of great wrestling in Ft Wayne (although the 2-1-1 periods SUCK!!!).

    I have a feeling this weight could be interesting all year. Throw in the possibility of a Tom KC and we are back to 138 as the weight to watch without a doubt.

    A lot of great action and competition at IHPO today. At 141 (138+3) we saw a great quarterfinal match between Chase Yost and Jake Insko. We will get an instant rematch at the All Star Classic as #1 ranked Chase Yost will look for some revenge against #3 ranked Jake Insko. All Star Matchups:  GFS - Messerly v Walton 106 - #1 Thomas v #14 @ 113 Moore 113 - #2 Fowler v #4 Andreoni 120/126 - #5 Grandstaff v #1 Deck 132 - #2 Merritt v #4 Grandstaff 138 - #1 Yost v #3 Insko 145 - #2 Rivera v #3 Wheeler 145/152 - #1 Lawrence v #1 Andreoni  152/160 - #2 Newberry v #5 Brooks  182 - #1 Mulcahy v #2 Blanton

    Another cross-weights match, with a couple guys with a lot of athletic potential. Ranked #2 @ 152 from host Moore HS is senior Isaiah Newberry who will face our most recent Fargo All American in Triston Brooks from Woodford Co who is ranked #5 @ 160. All Star Matchups:  GFS - Messerly v Walton 106 - #1 Thomas v #14 @ 113 Moore 113 - #2 Fowler v #4 Andreoni 120/126 - #5 Grandstaff v #1 Deck 132 - #2 Merritt v #4 Grandstaff 145 - #2 Rivera v #3 Wheeler 145/152 - #1 Lawrence v #1 Andreoni 152/160 - #2 Newberry v #5 Brooks 182 - #1 Mulcahy v #2 Blanton

    I see. Just trying to brush us aside. No respect. Just kidding of course.

    GOO did you vote defending Region 6 champs Walton-Verona off the NKY island? Small 2A school with many athletic teams on the rise.

    Another lightweight match of some tough young guys. After a great run to finish last season Cole Thomas of Ryle is the top ranked 106 in the state. His opponent wrestled up at 113 in the post season last year and while they haven’t wrestled each other in a few years, this match will give us a feel for where Spencer Moore of Walton-Verona stacks up at 106. All Star Matchups:  GFS - Messerly v Walton 106 - #1 Thomas v #14 @ 113 Moore 113 - #2 Fowler v #4 Andreoni 120/126 - #5 Grandstaff v #1 Deck 132 - #2 Merritt v #4 Grandstaff 145 - #2 Rivera v #3 Wheeler 145/152 - #1 Lawrence v #1 Andreoni 182 - #1 Mulcahy v #2 Blanton

    The next matchup puts the #2 ranked 145 pounder and returning state finalist at this weight Alex Rivera of host Moore HS against #3 ranked Nate Wheeler of St Xavier who was a top contender at 132 last year and now moved up a couple weights for his senior season. All Star Matchups:  GFS - Messerly v Walton 113 - #2 Fowler v #4 Andreoni 120/126 - #5 Grandstaff v #1 Deck 132 - #2 Merritt v #4 Grandstaff 145 - #2 Rivera v #3 Wheeler 145/152 - #1 Lawrence v #1 Andreoni 182 - #1 Mulcahy v #2 Blanton
