    Takeaways from state

    saying "it's always been that way" is a really poor excuse to not progress. we can do better. the sport deserves it, imo.

    BEST OF????

    I'd place Carr over Merritt (just barely) because he did it over a range of weight classes. But they both are similar in this regard: I've watched KY wrestling grow, expand and progress for 23 years. The talent level now is soooo much better than it used to be. Year-round training, parents being more involved, coaches travelling to camps and tournaments has made KY a better wrestling state and overall the level of competition has gotten exponentially tougher. But having said that these two guys in particular would still dominate and excel. Can't say that for all the past champs but I watched those guys kick butt and I feel certain, when at their peak, they couldve competed with anyone this state has produced.

    Knable (St. X) made the mistake of winning his 4 titles in 2 different decades lol but you can't have a greatest of all time list without him being mentioned somewhere.

    If you can find video of Carr's Tech Fall against Chattanooga I suggest you watch it. Put on a clinic.

    Carr took a loss in Cliff Keen to Northwestern Deaken 8-3 then knocked off Coleman from Purdue who's ranked top 10 to take 3rd place. Went 5-1 for the weekend Deaken was ranked #2 by Intermat and beat #1 Hidlay from NC St in the finals 6-2. Ridiculously competitive weight class.

    I'll say nothing else because its all in the past now and ppl have moved on but it wasn't difficult to pick up on what was goin on that season. By January it was obvs to most of the wrestling community.

    David Carr

    One of the classiest and most humble kids I've ever been around. A lot of people don't know what he went through as an 8th grader that season in KY but through it all he showed a level of maturity I have simply never seen in another teenage student athlete. His success at this level was inevitable, not because of his bloodline, not because of his strength or speed, it's because of his character, which is beyond exemplary.

    Brandon Reed vs Zach Elam

    Oh there is for sure some separation at the top I was just saying some of the NAIA top dogs placing above starters in D-1 programs is cool to see.

    Brandon Reed vs Zach Elam

    What a huge showing by Reed. Some of these NAIA and D-II heavies are indistinguishable from the D-1 guys. That's great to see. The thread is about Reed vs Elam. Don't spend the whole time talking about another HWY that didn't place and may not be in the lineup anyway. There is another thread for that already. Also, I don't get ripping a guy for losing a spot or not dominating when you know good and well he is coming off an injury. Ever been injured in your life? It sucks. Maybe have a bit of compassion for a student athlete trying to rehab and recover. Ignore his dad.
