Thread: Most Improved Wrestlers

  1. #1

    Default Most Improved Wrestlers

    Keddy topic kind of made me think about this. We're about half way through the season, long enough to start to judge the guys who are most improved from last season.

    1. Dan Vallimont: This isn't the same guy that Dustin beat 15-4 last year. Whether its the move up, or just another year in the room with a bunch of quality guys, he's very much improved this year.

    Other guys: Brandon Precin, Nick Marable, Phil Keddy

    I'd put Nick Fanthorpe on that list, too.

    I think Fanthorpe, Marable, Keddy are good choices.

    Would have to throw Bergman in as technically he has never been a heavy and his only loss this year is an overtime loss to Fox.

    Keddy is definitely on the list for me.

    Even though it seems strange to mention a NCAA finalist on a most-improved list, Varner sure seems to have improved a lot. He obviously beat Kish in the semis, but I believed at the time that if Kish and Varner wrestled another ten matches, Kish would probably take seven or eight. I'm sorry to say that doesn't seem to be the case any more. And Varner did not seem close to Herbert last year, but the way that Varner countered Herbert's attacks at the Midlands was impressive.

    Cyler Sanderson (at least early) seem greatly improved.

    Indeed. I guess Varner proves the adage that there is always room to improve.

    I guess I would include Falck but I always knew he would get there.

    i know it doesn't necessarily apply, but kellen russel coming right into college from high school and ranked in the top five is quite an improvement no matter what high school accolades you achieved

    i would concur with Kellen being certainly one of the most surprising wrestlers of the year but the thread was clearly MOST IMPROVED...
