Thread: Confused

    Default Confused

    I was looking at recruiting classes and saw that Cornell's class looks really strong. But as I was reading accomplishments, there were no state titles listed for Mark Grey. I then looked up a list of NJ state champions and couldn't find him listed for any year. What's the deal? The kid won darn near everything and was listed as the number 1 overall recruit. How did he not win a state championship?

    He goes to Blair.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I know. What does that have to do with it? Do they not participate in the state tourney?

    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.

    Wow. I never knew that if you participated in the National Prep tournament that you couldn't participate in your state tournament. I am assuming they are all private schools and/or boarding schools. Well, like they say, you learn something new every day.

    The NJSIAA (governing body of NJ high athletics) has very tight rules regarding a lot of aspects of competition. Blair doesn't comply with them, so no NJ wrestling tourney for them. Their situation is similar to St. Benedict's in Newark, NJ, which has one of the top, if not the top, soccer programs in the country.
