Thread: Pennsylvania, Why are they the best?

    I think PA is so good since
    1, theres alot of people
    2, talent usually breeds more talent
    3, we generally have pretty good sports in the other seasons so people stay competetive and in good shape

    (i dunno really about #3 but it seems to make sense)

    Elite wrestlers? Is that a serious question Joe Williams, TJ Williams, Joey Gilbert, Mike Mena, Sean Bormet, TC Dantzler, and Tim Wright(4x D 2 National champ) to name a few. O wait don't let me forget the 17 D 1 Nationally ranked wrestlers.

    I have a lot of respect for PA. and Ohio. Illinois is right up there. The past five years has seen atleast 4 teams ranked in the top 25 of W.I.N.'s rankings from Illinois High Schools.

    One more thing...Illinois did win the junior freestyle duals and the national freestyle tournament @ Fargo.

    All I'm asking for is a little respect for the Illini state.

    I live in the Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin are, and in the last ten years Iowa's best would not be Illinois's best. This is not braging it is a fact, every year Iowa City West goes to to Illinois tournaments...Dvorak Tournament and the Geneseo Bi-State tournament, out of the 5 or 6 years they have been going they have only won one of these tournaments once. Not taking anything away from Iowa High School wrestling, however I do believe that the University of Iowa's success gets unecessary credit to their h.s. teams.

    New York is not a contender for #1, in my opinion...

    Ohio
    Pennsylvania
    Iowa

    Look at tournament results, like the Ironman.
