  6. Indiana based Club looking for some weights to be filled for Rocky Mountain Duals. ELITE ATHLETIC CLUB WRESTLING ACADEMY has spots open for 170, 195,220 on one of their teams. ( all weights are +3 lbs * 170= 173)Tournament is in Kansas City Missouri August 21st. Weigh in is same morning. Individual tournament is following 2 days. The coach reaches out to me looking to see if we had any kids wanting to fill these spots. Message for details and I can pass you along to the coach.
  7. Has anyone discussed or are planning to do any dual tournaments from Kentucky I. Other states like Grand River Rumble, Viper Pit or King of the Ring? I have a few wrestlers that are looking to wrestle over the summer and wanted to see if anyone else has the same with their programs. With the unsureness of the Covid impact, most football players seem to be waiting for their season to start. But we have a couple that are wrestling only and would like to compete.
  8. Cole Thomas, Noah Duke, Rusty Craddock, Levid Rodriquez will be going to Rocky Mountain in 2 weeks. May have 1 or 2 more from Ryle to make the trip.

  10. Has anyone discussed or are planning to do any dual tournaments from Kentucky in other states like Grand River Rumble, in Oklahoma, Viper Pit in West Virginia or King of the Ring in Northern Indiana? I have a few wrestlers that are looking to wrestle over the summer and wanted to see if anyone else has the same with their programs. With the unsureness of the Covid impact, most football players seem to be waiting for their season to start. But we have a couple that are wrestling only and would like to compete. I appreciate any information that can be shared. Hope all is doing well, healthy and finding ways to train.

    Open Mats Simon Kenton High School

    Thank you Joe and Jarod for offering this up to help NKY wrestlers find mats to work out. As much as we all enjoy training the kids, it seems like all clubs and schools are doing their part to keep everyone safe and to do their part in stopping any chance of spreading the virus. Stay/Get healthy and we’ll all be back on the mats by summertime!!

    FCA 2020

    Ryle wrestling is looking forward to another year of great technique, food and amazing fellowship!! Thank you to Coach Rusty Parks and Coach Joe B on bringing this to Kentucky!!
  13. Any post season wrestling, we pay On our own. As soon as State is over, the school season is over. We travel together and I take as many kids as I can fit in my wife’s SUV. We all share costs on hotels/house rentals etc. if you can make it a family event and add some fun, it’s worth every minute!!

    Takeaways from state

    The tournament ran so much smoother with John and Jase Carr and Jason Hale with the track wrestling. I know Ryle high school purchased it and had it on at school Friday at lunch for all the students to cheer on their friends. Also so many friends reached out about watching it on Friday while at work. TRACK was a huge hit this year. Again, thank you to Jon Carr for all he does for this sport. Secondly, I want to say thank you to the Officials this weekend. From the matches I watched and coached, they allowed the wrestlers to wrestle and continued to keep up a good pace. I don’t remember seeing or hearing of a match decided by a call the official made, instead of what the wrestler did. Competition looked awesome and the finals had some incredible matches. Look forward to the KHSAA preplanning for next years roll up of the mats and moving the main mat to the middle. Hopefully they will embrace the fact that all the coaches wrestlers and fans want to always do what showcases these great athletes and continue to put the student athlete first ahead of what’s easier and quicker. Thank you Kentucky Wrestling for another great year!!

    Toughest weight classes at state

    I can speak from 3 aspects of this weight class and the need for it. I wrestled lightweight at first and it grew my love for the sport. That love Grew into coaching over the last 12 years in NKY and that love created a 92 lb 8th grade that was allowed to compete at 106 his 8th grade year and finish 3rd. The following year that freshman was at weight at 106 and won 106lb. Without that weight class, high school boys that are freshman and sophomores have 1 less opportunity to fall in love with this sport and go on to grow it with their children. I’ve had the privilege to travel nationally and watch some of the most skilled 106 lb kids compete in the nation. Watched the same young man My son had wrestled 6 times Their freshman year, go on to place at Super 32’s amongst others and become Nationally Ranked today. I get to watch daily the 1st 106 lb Ryle freshman female qualify for state. That same female freshman was a world team champion. Imagine if we listened to closed minded people that only want to shrink the sport because Of a few forfeits or some team allows a 8th grader to fill their line up. I guess kids like my son, Irvin’s, Moore’s, Messerly, Wheeler, Yost etc don’t have a place in the large volume of HS wrestling in Kentucky. Good luck to all the 106, 220 and all the weights in between wrestling this weekend.
