Default High School Wrestling!

Now that the wrestling season is in full swing, I figured I would see who else follows. I have always followed wrestling, but really got in to it more when my son wrestled for Elyria, Ohio, as they had a great team, and matched up against St. Eds very well his junior and senior year, 04'-05'. With The Ironman and The Beast of the East already over, another big holiday tournament here in Ohio is Brecksville http://www.brecksvillewrestling.com/ , although St. Eds does not wrestle in it. If you are not that familiar with St. Eds, they are always nationally ranked in the top ten, and usually top 3, although this year seems to be a bit of a down year. Also, those of you in Ohio are probably aware of Yappi.com which is a pretty good forum.

Here is what the Ohio state duals look like:

Wow. A lot of nationally ranked wrestlers from PA & Ohio, as usual. St. Eds is certainly well known. ..How'd your sons team do vs. St Eds in 04-05? Or overall?

I would imagine it's not quite the same following wrestling as compared to when your son wrestled...

Default Re: High School Wrestling!

hi there-i love talking high school wrestling, so i hope you dont mind telling my story...i wrestled here in minnesota ,and followed it for many years after i graduated from high school,when i got there the high school i went to st francis had just come off a state tournament consolation championship, and were projected to win it the year i joined,i had never wrestled really,just one year in junior high, football was my game,and i transferred high schools and thought like other schools football was the spotlight sport but everyone told me unlike other schools football wasnt "the sport," that if you wrestled you were a superstar to the school, so i joined figuring i would never wrestle or make the team,but it was true,they treated you great in the school and town, wrestling made you well known there,and it was alot of fun,and i was so happy i did decide to join the team,,the jv team that i was on finshed top in the state undefeated,beating a top seeded simley team that also had never lost and i wrestled a wrestler who had never lost and the match came down to me and i won!!!,that is my highlite.... and i even got to wrestle varisity ,which was one of the top teams all season but our team got upset and never made it to the state tournament...my brother wrestled the year after me and so i followed the team,and now they are not the power house like they used to be......but the claim to fame my brother has,that he was best friends with and wrestled with SEAN SHERK,who is now a ufc fighter and was the champion.......well anyway,seeing this post brought back memories and i hope you dont mind sharing this.......

the jv team that i was on finished top in the state undefeated,beating a top seeded simley team that also had never lost and i wrestled a wrestler who had never lost and the match came down to me and i won!!!


Wow LLF! Congrats! That is something I am sure you will remember the rest of your life!

I wrestled in both high school and college but I'd say the biggest moment for me in high school was actually a downer. I grew up and wrestled in CT. Although I won states for the equivalent of AAAA in Pennsylvania, I never won the state open.

It was the semi finals of the state open. I was ranked number two in the state at 27-1 and my only loss was to the guy I was wrestling who was 29-0. My only loss that season had been to him, 7-4. Anyway, it was an absolute brawl but I ended up losing 7-5. He was actually voted the Most Valuable Wrestler for the state open tournament and went on to become a Div II All-American in college. To this day, I have never gotten past that loss.

Had I won the state open I would have hung up my wrestling shoes as I would have reached my goal of winning the state open. So I guess the silver lining is that I continued to wrestle for 4 more years and created some great new friendships and memories.

Man do I miss competitive sports....

Great story lunatic.

Yes PA and OH do mostly dominate in wrestling, throw in NJ, and you have the three top states in the country.

Well I will tell you first off. Elyria has a top notch coach in Erik Burnett. He and I graduated high school the same year, which we didn't figure out til later on. He graduated from a school across the county as a 4 time state champ wrestler. And as a side note he was room mates in college with Kurt Angle from the WWE.

Anyway, as far as my sons team competing well with St. Eds, they gave them fits. They wrestled them twice before the state tourney both years. In sectionals and Regionals, all of the finals except one, HVY, were between the two schools. Everyone in the gym was cheering for Elyria, because Eds just dominates every year, so it was very exciting to be in that atmosphere! The regionals match was held in Mentor, and was always nicknamed the "Meatgrinder" because it was always toughest in the state. Eds and Elyria mostly got bracketed away from each other at states, and while it was not even close down at states, it was mostly due to Eds always wrestled back a lot better, and had a lot of third place finishers too. Although, they did have a kid pin everyone all the way through the state tournament. But it was some of the funnest, although nail biting times I have had watching.

One great dual story I can tell you. Elyria did not wrestle a lot of duals (mostly tournaments) which for some reason did not make them a great dual team. So, my son's senior year, they were in a position to win the conference, but had one dual match to go against the team that had won the conference for like 5 years straight, and they hadn't beaten in a dual for even longer.

Well if you remember, duals don't usually start at 103lbs., they draw for a weight to start at, which this one started at 140lbs. My son's team was weak in the upper weights, but very strong every where else. My son, Mike, wrestled 135 ( poor kid was always having to cut like 10 lbs. every week lol ), so Elyria was down when it came to his the final match (his match). Burnett told my son, you just have to tech him, and we win. The kid he wrestled was short but was a beast for 135. Mike had a strong takedown, and could get back points, but had trouble finishing him. About half way through the third period Mike is up 12-3, and can easily tech the kid as he is tiring. Burnett all of a sudden tells my son, I figured the points wrong you have to pin him...ha, now that is some pressure. Mike took him down again, threw the boots in on the kid, and pinned him with 5 seconds left! The place went absolutely nuts!!! Now that was a proud moment! I'll never forget that match.

That is an equally amazing story to me lambert. It's like the guy who lifts an impossibly heavy car to save the life of someone that is pinned under it. Simply extraordinary and unbelievable. Again, congratulations my friend.

Well, that 7-4 loss to the state open champ was my only dual meet loss in high school. The only other losses were mainly in tournament finals. I went to Allegheny College (Div III) and though I lost quite a bit more matches as the level of competition was better, I did at least achieve my goal of becoming an All-American. Thanks for asking.

I thought I would post a few of the finals from the Brecksville Holiday Tourney to show the level of competition that was there.

112 - Hunter Steiber ranked #2nd nationally wins 4-1
125 - Logan Steiber ranked #1 is out with a broken hand
