Re: Braxton

An athlete’s behavior reflects on the athlete and the people around him. Most kids compete with class, honor, and pride for themselves, their families, their teams, their coaches, and their schools. It’s the way it’s supposed to be, business as usual. They don’t draw a lot of attention for behaving...

Re: Alternate Uniforms: Causing More Problems Than It Solves

My dislike of the 2 piece has always been for the same reason. I can see a finger or foot getting caught in the loose material and causing an injury. I like the idea of compression shorts and a tight-fitting shirt much more than the 2 piece like in the pic Gator posted.

Re: Braxton

In reading the scores, it states Braxton County defeated Greenbrier East 80-0. Can somebody provide clarity on this? I cannot believe these two schools wrestled with their full line ups and this was the final score. Coach Williams? WTF (were there forfeits)????? That was their JV team. I think they...

vortex I feel sorry for that senior. You are presenting yourself as a supporter of him, yet even you don't think he can beat out this "new talent". Hopefully his coach has more faith in him than you do. With that said, a coach who has watched a kid be a part of the team for four years, but...

Re: Background checks for coaches and refs

The caveat here is that knowing they do drugs and reporting it doesn't affect much. To be fired they must be brought before the board with actionable evidence which is most definitely going to need to be criminal charges or a criminal conviction. State law does not provide requirements for them to b...

Re: OVAC Rankings

This is Josh’s first year wrestling in the OVAC. I guess that is what is confusing me. He wrestled for PS the last 3 years and PS won the OVAC each of those years, but I couldn't find him in the brackets anywhere. Why has he not competed at OVACs for PS before? No doubt he would be about to embark ...

I have no idea what school you are talking about, but it seems odd that not a single wrestler would sign up for the middle school in a county that has a "long running wrestling tradition" at the high school and there not be an underlying issue. What do you mean by a "WV Open" for...

Re: 145

I would think most wrestlers would bump up at least a class, wouldn’t you guys think? Not necessarily. If they weighed 140 and wrestled 145 then they could easily still be in the 140-145 area. Also, unless they spent the summer lifting weights or lifting donuts, most juniors and seniors don't gain ...

Yeah connectivity is a big part of the problem. I want to use my Android tablet, which has no cellular connectivity.

Re: AAA 195 - An Intriguing Weight Class

Looking at that, I would say 195 and 220 should be good classes. If that many qualifiers and placers land at 195 then I would imagine a handful of them will eat donuts and go up to 220.

Hi Makiya and welcome to the forum. My two pennies is that the Adidas Adi Hair cover works better than the Cliff Keen because the chin strap helps keep it from sliding back on your head during a match, which I am guessing is the "absolutely horrible" part that you mention. I saw several gi...
