Not really. He's the #1 ranked pound for pound Jr. High wrestler by Intermat (Marstellar is #2).
Below is the link to his Fargo bracket last year (see 98 lbs). You can see he teched or pinned just about everyone in his pool before dropped a close one to Nick Roberts, who is 2 years older and one of the top wrestlers in his own class.
KR: Cortez just took 2nd at FILA Cadets, losing to Freddie Rodriguez of Michigan.
One of my picks CODY WEIRCHIOCH just beat Taylor Massa 4-2 in the Super 32 down in Carolina.
Felipe Martinez also lost. Two of the best juniors-to-be out there. Felipe looked way out of shape. Didn't look at all like what he looked like at Graham.
Freshman Chance Marstleller beats SUPER 32 Champ & 3x PIAA AA medalist Nick Hodgkins
Chance Marstleller (R) vs Nick Hodgkins (G) | Wrestle for the Fight on Flowrestling
I have a section on Chance in this thread already. Hodgkins beat Green of NJ 2 weeks after this match in the finals of the Super 32. Hodgkins came into this match with a HS record of 117-8 with 46 by FALL, 16 by TECH FALL & 20 by MAJOR. Hodgkins is currently ranked as #35 in his class in the nation & #4 @ his projected college weight of 141.
In 2008 Hodgkins was 2nd @ the PIAA AA finals as a Freshman.
In 2009 he won States & in 2010 he placed 3rd.
@ Junior Nationals he was going to wrestle @ 135 but he was overweight. No problem he won the National Junior title @ 140.
UM this should tell you how good this kid Marstleller is! Chance has NOT even wrestled an official HS wrestling match YET!
This past weekend, Chance Marstellar, wrestling for the KEYSTONE BRAWLERS, went 4-0, (2 falls & 2 dec, see below) & in the process, defeated returning AA state champion Nick Carr (South Fayette) at the Battle Rattle Duals, 6-1. CM wrestled at 160, although he weighed in at 152 (not sure what Carr weighed in at, but Nick won his state title last year at 145 defeating Jordan Moss of Sharon)

With Chance wrestling @ 160 there is already talk of him running into Super Soph & Super 32 champ Wiercioch, (Defending PIAA AA 152 champ but has also bumped up a weight) but since Chance's HS is AAA that won't happen unless it's in another preseason tournament. I wonder if there has ever been a Freshman ranked preseason #1 in the history of the PIAA???
Marsteller is truly something else. He's got a Kolat-esque future ahead of him if he doesn't burn out.
