    Specialized Sports

    I agree with Coach T proper training "strength, flexibility, aerobic, conditioning, and nutrition" are very important in trying to cut down on injuries.

    Specialized Sports

    My son "Blue" plays baseball, football, and wrestles. He also played basketball until 7th grade. I've talked to a few parents of kids who only wrestle. They've never really mentioned any down side to only wrestling year round. There is injurys in any sport it just comes with the territory. There are plus and minus in doing it either way.

    2 LB Weight allowance encourages weight cutting?

    Last December Blue was 105lbs soaking wet. At the start of October he was walking around at 127lbs now he walks around at 132lbs. So I know your pain.

    Board Issues

    It's my understanding that all schools that helped out " table workers, concessions, gate, etc" got a cute from the middle school tournament. So Montgomery Co wasn't the only school benefiting from having MS state there. But I could be wrong everyone knows I have been before lol.

    Moving MS state away from Montgomery County made zero sense to me aswell.

    2 LB Weight allowance encourages weight cutting?

    Of course the 2lb weight allowance encourages middle school kids to cut. The intentions of the rule isn't to encourage cutting but that's exactly what the rule does. A lot of the weight classes will be drastically different after the new year with most kids that switch weight classes cutting down a class.

    Rankings 11-12-17

    I agree with your statement. It has seemed in the past that the best wrestlers in MS have mostly been under 100lbs. Although this year I believe we have a mix of really great wrestlers at all weights. If you look at who "most" people would consider the top 6-8 kids in MS this year you will get kids ranging in almost all weights. Also if a kid is wrestling at a high enough level while they are in 4th grade to be ranked. Rank them! My son has wrestled middle school since the 2nd grade. We didn't have rankings for MS then so I didn't have to worry about it lol.
  14. I believe he's with McCreary County.

    Rankings 11-19-17

    Getting closer Mr. Duke lol. All kidding a side thanks for doing what you do we all appreciate the time you put into these rankings. Blue also said thanks for the coaching at the John Hardin tourney he really apprsciated it lol. He said he'll remember to stay off his back the rest of his career thanks to you lol.

    You've got a pretty solid list Chris for the lack of info your have. Hopefully after next weekend we'll know what weight most of these kids are for the time being.
  18. I believe Ranger was responding to the "you have your agenda" comment. Don't think it was him getting touchy over a critique. These guys doing rankings put a lot, I mean a lot of time into this. Then for them to have someone say they have an agenda for them ranking a certain kid in a certain place is pretty disrespectful. I know Ranger a little bit and I don't think he would have an agenda with anyone when he does his rankings. Rankings are just a few people's opinions. If you don't like those opinions go out in the mat and change them. Good luck to all young mean this year and God bless.
  19. Congrats to all the wrestlers yesterday. Seen some great young talent today. After the track glitches and the hour break it went pretty smooth. Excited for a great year of wrestling.

    Fargo - rant #2 - the bad

    I would love for there to be more opportunities in eastern Ky for Blue to train through the summer. But it's hard to drop everything and travel 3 hours a few times a week. Blue has only wrestled folk style but he'd love to learn the other disciplines. Congrats to Zeke. He's a great kid who earns every win.

    Looking for open mats?

    Looking for open mats for Blue to attend. thanks
