I don't think there are that many 300 pound high schoolers. Nonetheless, I'm sure those with an interest in athletics think of football. You ask why not try for football? I say injury. Also, you kinda confirmed what I suspected: that the big guys don't take as well to all the work wrestling demands--which comes much more naturally to the smaller guys. Not that they aren't willing to work hard--just different kind of body and different needs.
Don't forget there are not that many people over 240 pounds period. If you have 1000 middle weight wrestlers and 20 HWT wrestlers, you will have more to pick from in the middle weights as a result.
