    Yeah, my Senior year I bumped to 160 to wrestle him, he was on a 90+ match win streak and (at least to me) seemed much bigger.. lol.

    I kept track of Johnny as a prep but kept a distance. He had lightning reflexes and really good mat instincts. I shouldn't editorialize, but the chip on his shoulder got a little too heavy for him to carry around sometimes. It showed.

    He was headed to OU but a "misunderstanding" with Spate's offer derailed it. He went to NIU instead. Sorry, you probably already know this.

    By the way, we moved into your old turf, just one city north of AV off I35E. Nice communities.

    In college, I wrestled Sean O'Day (NCAA Champ) and Troy Sunderland (runner up) in the same week!

    Uhh... no, I didn't win.

    Chris Campbell in 26 secs. He took a quick takedown, I managed a scramble and was coming over the top with one leg in but way too high when he reached up with one arm and pulled me over the top by my head and stuck me while I was still hanging on top and my leg stuck underneath. I never did find out if the ref gave me the two for the reversal. He hard unbelieveable strength.

    I take solice in the fact it was a pre-season scrimmage so officially I never did lose to him
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I wrestled Phil Davis, TJ Morrison, Mark Murphy (2x D2 runner up), and Neil Bretz (scholly to psu and was a spot starter as a frosh, then got damn near paralyzed and was never the same) every day all summer long in high school. Don Reese used to kick all our asses.

    As far as college success my toughest matches ever would have to be Herbert and Gavin (both losses but Gav was close). But at the time Josh Haines was better than both of them. Rella was a beast in High School too.

    I beat Arnone twice as a sophmore, but was 0-3 after that. I beat both Lewnes bros at a camp, but that doesn't count.

    ... and sadly, when I was like 13 I made fun of Sara McMann when she was at Lock Haven, so she pulled me infront of everyone and took me down 3 times in about 30 seconds.

    I know I mention this every time something like this comes up, but I can't help it because it was so f'ing brutal. I think my wrestling David Kjelgaard, Brett Matter, and Bryan Snyder in the same day as a true freshman has you beat (ranked #2, 3 and 4 in the nation at the time).

    I remember you brought this up when we dubbed some guy the Poor Bastard of the Week when he had to wrestle I think Escobedo and Ness over a three day span.

    You win.
