Can't help but notice several of the studs from DeKalb not on our roster.

Also, many graduated seniors not on the list. Isn't the rule that are once eligible for Junior (once you start HS) you have 4 continuous years of eligibility? Please correct me if this is not true. I can't blame a young man for going to college early and opting out of Fargo.

I'll say this, Fargo is the primary recruiting shop window for most Illinois guys. If you talk to most of the guys wrestling in college right now, they will tell you they made their fortune at Fargo.

That being said, it is a GRIND.

It's fun while it's still useful, but once you have your deal, most guys decide to just enjoy their last summer with buddies. That's what mine did.

What they should do is open the camp to Seniors who aren't competing to come down as practice partners for the guys. Every year I hear guys talk about wanting to go to camp and roll around, but not knowing whether or not that's a thing.

It should be a thing, if at all possible.

No, some senior holdbacks are too old to wrestle in Fargo as a senior

In 2019, USA Junior is defined as born 9/1/1999 and after. Do the math. Your comment isn’t accurate.

Right now the Yasar Dogu is happening.

Fargo starts Saturday and goes through next week. There will be a lot of chatter then as matchups are known and anticipated. This is Illinois; we are plenty excited about Fargo.

Yanni vs Zain 1st round tonight!
