    Default A New Jersey Boy to Remember

    Damion Hahn was bestowed the title, NJ Wrestler of the 20th Century. Mike was the first to win 4 NJ State titles and never lost a bout in NJ. Scott Winston, the first NJ schoolboy to go underfeated throughout his HS career and only missed 4 state titles because he broke his wrist the week prior to his 9th grade tournament. Great wrestlers, but maybe not THE BEST. The title may well go to Andrew Campolattano who stamped his presence on the mat in NJ today taking the 189 lb title as a 9th grader. Thanks right, a 9th grader taking a senior laiden 189 lb class.

    Remember the name, Andrew Campolattano. This kid is something to watch.

    He'll have to shorten his name to "Camp" if he expects anyone to be able to spell it..

    Andrew wrestled very well and was very impressive. I'm excited to watch him over the next three years. But he still has alot of work to do to get mentioned along with the others you brought up, IMO.

    Not gonna argue about that, but he is a freshman and he's not a 103.
    It's a stretch to say he's better than Hahn or Winston, no question about that, but this kid has the ability.

    First, don't assume Winston would have won that state title his freshman year, #3 Ranked Dan Vallimont PSU, was a senior at Jefferson HS and won his 2nd state title that year. Not saying Winston couldn't have beat him, but, boy I just can't image Vallimont losing to anyone that year, especially a freshman.
    Second, and don't get me wrong, that Campo kid is impressive! But a 16 year old freshman!?!? Most freshman are 14 maybe 15, i didn't turn 16 till my junior year! Word on him is he might even be a better football player than he is a wrestler! That is a scary thought!!!!!!!!
