    from my vantage point, he gets more out of his kids than demeray did and he does it with a little bit more positive vibe...just my opinion...before anyone argues that, you can talk with guys like brian kemp, tim duran, joey venewitz who were cutting SERIOUS weight and getting guilt tripped most of the way...

    You'd be expected to cut more weight, Demaray didn't have 3-4 transfers each year to weight classes where they need guys...

    Goferphan.....

    I do disagree. Though Jackson is a great coach, he did not build the program. Most of the names you mentioned were guys who needed to be ridden.

    I wrestled for Bill Demaray and he got every ounce of sweat from me-why? Because I wanted to wrestle and win for that guy. He's the Man.

    sitandspin, who are you?

    I never said Jackson built the program. You would be misinformed to make that statement. It was Demeray that began getting the middle schools and the elementary programs going when I was there. We were expected to volunteer our time with the elementary and middle school programs.

    I would disagree that a Brian Kemp needed to be ridden. Just the opposite if you knew his upbringing. That kid, while somewhat of an a-hole to be around had an enormous amount of talent and bravado but I think he burned out even before he got into highschool. Cutting weight I think was killing his ability to perform at a very high level.

    Just my opinion. Any AV guy is a friend of mine. Welcome to The Wrestling Talk.

    I was told tha Kemp killed himself some years back. Your right his life did suck. His father was an ass and everyone knew it, even the coaches. I'm not sure that cutting weight had anything to do with making his life worse, per se.

    Do the varsity wrestlers still have to help with the VAA?
