    Default my vote for BREAK OUT freshman

    A.J.Schopp-133-Edinboro-19-1 with 9 falls and 6 TF's. I anticipated Schopp winning 80% of his matches this year.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Hard to disagree so far.

    Hunter stieber-- True frosh with a win over the returning national Champ.
    Gold is an idiot.

    Both Stiebers are technically Freshmen. Considering Logan ate AJ for breakfast gotta rank him above. Also Delgado beat a returning National Champ this year. So I'd put AJ behind both Stiebers and Delgado.

    AJ has been awesome this year no doubt, just obscured by some better performances.

    While I'd agree that the Stiebers have done better, their names were already made. Most people hadn't heard of AJ Schopp before this year, so think the "break out" title is more appropriate for him than the Stiebers.

    How household of a name was Jesse Delgado coming into this year? AJ and Jesse were both pretty equally under the radar.

    Your Buckeye card has just been revoked! Breakout doesn't mean most suprising. It means a guy who breaks away from the pack. AJ may be most suprising, but not the most breakout freshman. I would say Hunter beating a returning national champion is as breakout as you can get. Once Logan beats Oliver, then we have a discussion. Right now it's all Hunter.

    Come on Gold! It's Christmas time. Eat a few chocolate and peanut butter buckeyes and hop back on the wagon.

    I'm in PA for the next few days, that should explain my transgressions. Just needed someone to call me out and get my head back on straight, thanks.

    My post did not mention Delgado.

    Even so, Delgado made a name for himself in high school. I had not heard of Schopp until the Buffalo Open last year.
