Personally, that age gap will never affect my son, as he's pretty itty bitty and will always be wrestling small / small(ish) kids.

Having said that, a 130# 12 year old has just about nothing in...

I'm not a big fan of this as well. My son is a pretty good wrestler who loves wrestling and competing but isn't a 'first class' type kid. So if he's waiting for an ALL ILLINOIS team, well then he's...

Didn't see Real Woods on the list? Based on open tournaments, I think he's got to be in the same group as Will Lewan / Austin Gomez.

I know Blair can pull kids from anywhere they want to, but the good majority of their line-up are local kids. Maybe an hour drive is stretching the definition of 'local', but I don't think kids...
