True that this by-law only specifies football, basketball, soccer, & volleyball, but I would want to see written approval from the IHSA specifiying that it was ok, before I would allow an underclassman to wrestle in an "all-star" dual. After 41 years as a high school coach in Illinois, I have learned to only trust written verification from the IHSA about specific situations. To say I don't always trust them with the gray areas would be an understatement.
I had this confirmed with Gannaway when I was looking to put on an all-star event, but I agree, I would get it in writing before actually going through with things.
