Thread: Can you identify these wrestlers?

    Default Can you identify these wrestlers?

    Hi all,

    I just became involved with a new organization called 'Pinning Down Autism," and the organization is going to be hosting a series of takedown tournaments to raise money for Autism.

    So I am designing the logo and the website. The international symbol for Autism is puzzle pieces (because Autism is puzzling and enigmatic). So for the logo, we wanted to incorporate the puzzle pieces with a pinning image.

    Being a photographer and not an illustrator, I traced a photo I took at NCAAs of one wrestler using a pinning combo on the other wrestler.

    I need your help to see if the wrestlers look generic, or if you can actually identify the wrestlers in the logo (see image below). Since you guys and gals are all college wrestling experts, I thought you would be the best to ask since if you can identify them, I need to ask their permission to use their likenesses in the logo.

    Let me know if you can identify them! Thanks for your help. And let me know if you want to get involved with the cause. The first tourney is May 12th at Petrides HS in Staten Island, NY.

    Looks like Simmons choking a guy...

    If it is, I'd assume with haters of Kansas wrestling, that it is McCormick on bottom.

    Skimpy arms on offense and defense seem to reflect 125's, though it could be Matt Anderson, Lehigh, but the body isn't long enough. Like rstong I noticed the tight hold under the chin and immediately thought of the ELS.

    I have no idea who they are (which, I assume is what you are going for, too). Great graphic, by the way.

    I am really glad I asked you guys. I knew you'd be the experts! It is in fact Simmons wrestling McCormick during the consolation semifinals at NCAAs this year.

    I wrote to Nick to ask his permission to use the image, but I don't know McCormick at all. It's a little more difficult to write to someone you have never met to ask their permission to use an image of them on their back...

    USE IT ANYWAY! I'm from KANSAS and I say his ass didn't get stuck so...USE IT! Otherwise just ask the Missouri coach if they are ok with it.

    You are right that McCormick didn't get stuck. It was a 9-0 major decision.

    And although I appreciate getting your permission to use Tyler's image since you are both from Kansas, I really do prefer to ask the athlete himself!

    Hell I got one of Lambrecht spladling me somewhere and another of Hoy crossface/winging me if I can find it.
