    If these guys show they can exhibition. You can guarantee good matches if you just make It happen. It's not like the refs are doing It for big paydays, if anything they wanna watch good wrestling. Anyone that my guys called out, I will pay your entree fee if you show up. Just shoot me a text and once you show Ill Venmo It over.

    Hey everyone! I noticed on my Facebook as well as the message boards they are starting to push the Bluegrass state games pretty hard. This is a great tournament that I would love to see grow into something big for Kentucky wrestling. With that being said I talked with some of my guys after practice today and asked who they would like to wrestle/call out. Obviously we have no clue what some of these guys weigh so I will post the ETC guys weights to the right. This is what they came up with as a group. I hope this adds some fun, excitement, and competitiveness to the event! Christian Delos Santos is calling out Logan Brown and Brayden Blevins (Christian walks around at 108-111) Jonah McCloskey is calling out JaRi Campbell and Sebastian Vega (Jonah was 115.2 after practice) Amari Hardin is calling out Breyden Whorton and TJ Meyer (Amari walks around 126-130) Rider Trumble is calling out Miller Brown and TJ Meyer (Rider was 132.8 after practice) Malachi Harris is calling out Glenn Mayes, Jasitin Kubwimana, and Mason Schweitzer (Malachi walks around 154-160) *would have called out the entire world if I let him. Austin Silva is calling out Uriah Virzi (Silva walks around between 220-226) Coaches and parents, ask your kids who they would like to wrestle and lets call them out. I took the first step, whos got the guts to follow suit? (This is all fun and games. I do not know most of these guys being called out personally other than Blevins, Whorton, and Mason. These are the guys that they came up with between themselves having fun)

    2022 State recap

    I agree with a lot of this. I do think the numbers need to be there in order to create elite guys. With that being said Kentucky has gone backwards as far as depth, as well as our very top talent. I am not looking to make statements about how bad Kentucky wrestling is right now, the fact we are wrestling the state tournament in a HS gym speaks for itself. What can we do as coaches to grown wrestling? I am at a school where we have FANTASTIC coaches as well as a full time JV coach who does a great job. What should smaller schools do that don't have the man power that schools like Union, Ryle, JC, Trinity have? What tips can we give to new coaches or young guys right out of college? (I am still learning from Patrick and others). We can keep saying Promote, Promote, promote but in what way? These are all genuine questions that I think could help. I do think that the 2013-2017 guys coming back from college and taking over young programs like Owensboro will help.

    2022 State recap

    I think we just have different aspirations for Kentucky wrestling. We have had a time when there were 4-5 nationally ranked kids at the same time out of Kentucky (Me, Brock, Fausz, Lampe, Meyers). At this same time the depth was MUCH higher than it is currently. When you have elite guys they typically train outside of their program and they will bring that stuff back to their rooms. That could be work ethic, technique, commitment level literally anything. Parents notice what other kids are doing and don't want there kids to fall behind. If little Jonny is going to 3 summer camps and Bobs dad down the street sees that he will most likely sign his kid up, that grows wrestling. Trying to build Kentucky wrestling on sheer numbers wont help as now you have a bunch of half committed wrestlers and that spreads like wild fire. There will ALWAYS be powerhouse and dominate programs, even in Ohio and other states. We should compare ourselves to other states as they are better. If you do not compare yourself then how do you know if you are getting better or worse? If all you care about is Kentucky state titles I can promise there will be 14 state champs next year just like we had the last 20+ years.

    2022 State recap

    I was told Whorton was hurt a week before that match (he is still hurt as he has the same piece of bone floating in his knee. Reason he medical Forfeit at NHSCAs). In the same sense Lane Kiser beat Noah Duke this year as well and I was told Duke was sick. That is why I said "just watching state" before I said Whorton was 4+ points better.

    2022 State recap

    Holy smokes 16+ percent is insane to say the least. Of those 16% how many came from the stronger Semi-State (SS1 based on the above stats). Now we are getting into the really interesting stats. I am still sticking with the fact we have no depth even given the above. The drop off from the top 2-3 guys is huge outside of maybe 120 which was my favorite weight of the year. When I refer to depth I am referring to title contenders. 106-Raney is a pin above everyone. 113-Raney is a pin above everyone 120-Pretty good depth but just watching state Whorton was 4+ points ahead of second best guy. (literally laid on bottom entire third lol I got on him after the match) 126-Eckman is a major better than everyone else on any given day 132-Top 2 guys are a pin better than the rest of the state 138- A little depth here. Not sure if its true but heard Peyton used the Covid year so not suprised with him being so dominate. Taking nothing away kid is a stud. 144- This weight has a little depth but the top 3 were clearly ahead of rest in Beane, Goss, and Andreoni. 150- Top 2 were above the rest 157- Weird weight. Herron is a major better than everyone other than Ferree. Ferree's style doesn't really reflect in points against the better guys in the state. 165- 2 horse race with Jeff kinley hurt 175- You have Duke......then Kiser....................................................................................................then everyone else 190- You have Little. On my list for best out of Kentucky 215 and HWT- You either have one guy that Walks through the weight or flip a coin and you will get your champ. I think you could have merged these weights this year and there is a chance neither of the champs would have won the weight.

    2022 State recap

    I agree with a lot of the above. I DO NOT think that 32 man brackets are necessary in Kentucky. If we had even the slightest bit of depth whatsoever maybe. All we would be doing is adding in a bunch of early round pins. It makes no sense for team score to carry over from semi-state to state as they are different tournaments no matter how you want to cut it. The tournament is ran very well for it being in a HS gym but it needs to be at least in a college arena of some sort at minimum. Before I was in KY I came to watch Fahy in the finals and some of the Woodford guys and it was one of the coolest experiences I have seen in Frankfort. We have gone the wrong direction in that aspect. As many have complained about in the past, they need to do a better job of splitting schools to semi-states based on distance. Louisville to Union was BRUTAL. I'm curious how many 7th and 8th place guys from Semi-State placed at State. If it was more than 10% I would be very shocked.
