Jacob Smith did not wrestle Carroll last year. He wrestled New Lenox's JV wrestler Stevens in the state semi's and was losing 4-3 after two periods before he turned it around in the third to get the win. Carroll was beaten out last year, but I have a feeling these two are on a crash course for what will more than likely be the "match of the tournament"! Smith looked very strong last year, but believe it or not strength will be a toss up. Carroll is a man-child. I believe the winner of this match, if it occurs, will be the wrestler who is more fundamentally sound not stronger strengthwise. I have seen both wrestle and I believe this is anyones match.
