    He is the best wrestler at that weight class in the whole high school. Not much justification needed. Just as the quarterback on the football team is the best quarterback in the high school. Key word being the high school.

    I know this is an extreme example, but if a kindergartener's is the best wrestler at a weight class should he start on the varsity?
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    In Minnesota to play high school sports according to state league rules a person must be in 7th grade or above. (All high school sports not just wrestling)

    But, to answer your question- if they were the best athlete at a given sport and could legitimately compete with the other participants I may be possibly say yes even to a kindergardener if the rules allowed for it.

    To give a extreme example Tiger Woods as a young boy could golf better then many high schoolers can. (Ever see any film of him at about 5?) I could see him making the golf team.

    I like the idea of a weight change only because it helps out the smaller schools
