I read somewhere that Mango is a native of Southeast Asia. Is that true, and how do these kids make it into American wrestling programs?

Its that time of year when crowd of the massive will try to see their high school wrestlers all participate in 1 building for numerous High School Classes.


Then you have the big daddy tournament for NCAA wrestling when dramatic and flare happen in numerous weight classes as the story favorite can come in unbeaten and leave without even placing as an All-American or the underdog 10 seed can become a Champion. No time to rest as if your cutting weight heavy, it will show on the map and you will get tech by some freshman in your senior year.

WONDERFUL EVENT!

This guy named Stephen Neal, was an multiple NCAA Champion, World Champion, and then later went and played for Bill Bilichek as a starting offensive lineman and won a Super Bowl.

Needless to say, the guy is a Champion.

"Cornell senior Kyle Dake became the first wrestler in NCAA history to win four national titles at four weights Saturday night, and Penn State won the national team title for the third year in a row.

Dake had won titles at 141, 149 and 157 pounds. He boldly jumped up a class even though Taylor, the 2012 Hodge Trophy winner as the nation's best wrestler, stood in his way."

My grandson Will Geary is at Virginia Beach for the national high school wrestling tournament and has thus far won all of his matches and has won the right to be labeled "All American". Today he wrestles a young man from New York for the 285 lb championship. Yesterday he defeated the heavy weight champion of Texas to reach the finals. Good luck Will!

As you are no doubt aware by now Will Geary won the Virginia Beach heavy weight wrestling championship this week and is being hotly pursued by a number of D-1
schools, including Big 12s and Cornell.While he stll has a preferred walk on offer from KSU I would hope his wrestling success would reopen the possibilty of a full scholarship offer from a D-1 program who sees the potential of a 285 lb all American wrestler and a 6A all state defensive lineman. (ask the Texas and NYC wrestlers he beat at VB if he's too short at 6-1)

Following a trip to Ithaca NY my grandson (Will Geary) has decided that he'd rather be a KSU redshirt than a Cornell wrestler. It's his decision and we respect it. When I was his age I elected to enlist in the Army to qualify for the GI Bill. Different strokes folks!

KU did not offer him. KState did. I place more confidence in his knowing what's best for him than me. Only time will tell if he made the right decision. I am more regretful that he passed on a full ride wrestling scholarship at an Ivy league school than the fact that he won't be playing football for KU. In any event he's still just an 18 year old kid with the whole world in front of him. The more I stay out of his way the better for both of us!

Hi Maximus,
Glad to found wrestling threat here and well carried by other members. I am a big fan of wrestling and Randy Orton and John Cena are my favorite wrestlers. Wrestling is great sport to tone body, makes body and mind active and keeps you physically fit.

Wrestling season is near and I'm excited.

You don't know, unless you have been a successful hardcore wrestler.

"The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel who are trying to do things. Talent you have naturally, skill is only develop by hour and hours of working on your craft. No matter how talented you are, your talent is going to fail you if your not skilled. Cause it not about where you come from, its about heart."
~Jordan Burroughs

Matmen and grapplers are synonyms. It's no big deal if someone wants to be ignorant and call wrestlers "gay.'

It's the manliest sport out there, IMO. A contest where you can truly measure, in a pounds per pound division, who is the batter man the day 2 people battle on the mat for glory. The winner pins or scores more points and gets their hand raised. You cannot blame the coach, the ref, or a teammate if you lose!

Not really, it's only progressive in fighting. When two dummies outside MMA get into a bar fight or something, it doesn't take too many punched for a TKO, so best way to win is for the other guy not to be able to punch you, and a punch thrown from your back as little effect and power if you get hit.

More kids stuff. The man is Tom Brands. 3x NCAA Wrestling Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, Head Coach for Iowa Hawkeyes, has trained numerous NCAA National Champions and Olympians, and he makes more than $250,000 a year so he knows what he is talking about as a good old MidWestern boy from Iowa where you work harder till the getting is done.

If KU had a varsity program I have no doubt he would be at KU and bring home a Championship, but I'll root for him at MU.

This is just bad wrestling, and the move isn't even done properly, but when your coach tells you whats gong to happen, and you don't listen, you deserve to get pin.

This is how the move is done right and look how embarrassing it can be as your forced to view yourself with nothing left to the imagination to the wrestling crowd.

If you squeamish on how the body is not flexible, don't watch.

Cary Kolat

Someone asked Cary Kolat “How did you push yourself and achieve what you did, what was the one thing you did that set you apart?” Kolat responed, “There are many things that contribute to my success as a wrestler, but when I really thought about it I did something everyday that I believe is the one major contributing factor to my success in the sport! I had to go there every day in my mind”. When I was seven years old, I said I wanted to win the Olympics and when I was ten I began to train for it. There was not a day in my life all the way up to the 2000 Sydney Games that I did not think about winning a gold medal. Honestly, I think at the very least 5 minutes a day was dedicated to making this happen in my mind, so from ten years old until the Olympic Games I had over 31,000 minutes of my life spent visualizing winning that event by the time I finally got there and that is a conservative estimate. We hear all the time you have to visualize it and see it in your mind if you are going to make it happen. I never did anything in the sport that did not involve me running through situations in my head that involve the Olympic finals. Point to the above paragraph is this, and I try to put this in the mind of the kids that I coach. If you and I were in practice wrestling situations and I had lets say the offensive position on a high crotch and the coach yells out, “man with the high crotch is losing by 1 with 15 seconds left.” Now, when he blows that whistle I’m wrestling in the Olympic finals in my mind and I really believed it. To many of my partners over the years they were training, and training hard, but mentally and physically I was training in a different place than them during practice sessions. They were in a high school wrestling room and I was on a platform in front of thousands of American fans waiving our flag. Would you simply be defending my attempt to score or would you be wrestling somewhere in your mind? That was the difference between me and my competition in the practice room and on the mat. So, and like your statement, all humility aside I expected to win 4 state titles, I expected to win 4 NCAA titles, and I expected at some point be the best in world. I did not accomplish all my wrestling goals but I would have to say that what I did accomplish was because of the way I approached my training. When I trained I expected to win every takedown, scramble, situation, etc. because I was wrestling mentally in the Olympic finals and I had a higher training standard for myself than most of my training partners. Every good wrestler works hard and pays the price and every great wrestler is a little crazy in aspects of training. The guys I wrestled with on the Olympic team were mainly a little crazy, obsessive, compulsive, and tolerated nothing less than winning. If you tolerate losing one takedown in practice then in time you will slip when it counts. When I was wrestling I heard coaches and sport psychologists always talk about visualization. Truthfully, they bored me most times because I never gave it much credit but apparently I was always doing this in the practice room, during bike workouts, during matches, etc. I was always training in my mind and in my every day life.

My wife, Erin, always thought I was a little crazy with the way I did things until she really got to know me. When we would come to my apartment steps in college I would walk up them backwards. If you have never tried to walk up steps backwards give it a shot. I did this because I thought walking up normally was easy but backwards it increased my leg strength and gave me a different awareness. And I thought that a new awareness might be the small detail that saved me some day at the Olympics. When I would pump gas into my car on a cold day Erin would say, “use the switch to hold the pump in place and get back in the car until it is finished.” I wouldn’t do it because I would stand there squeezing the pump handle working on my grip and I might need that grip in the coming games. If I could avoid an elevator or escalator, I’d choose the stairs every time. . I never looked for the parking space closest to the store, I parked in the furthest spot possible. My point is I made the simple tasks in life as difficult as I could so I would have no guilt about being lazy. I tried to do those little things that my opponents would overlook which mentally made me feel tougher, better prepared and in my mind more deserving. I did things like this all my life because I was training for it every day until I got there. This might seem really strange to some people but not strange to the .005% that actually wrestle in the Olympics. Everybody has their way of doing things and my way might not be the answer for everyone or the answer you were looking for to the forum question, but I do believe it is what allowed me to accomplish what I did accomplish. When I was on my first World Team, Lincoln McIlravy and I were talking and I remember him telling me he worked out once a day sometimes twice a day and that made no sense to me because I worked out three times a day, how does he do it? The answer was Lincoln’s mind was in a different place than where I was during those days. I needed to punish myself with three workouts a day to have my mind ready going into events. Many of my training partners could not keep up with what I did and they were on the Olympic ladder themselves so when I saw them quit I drew more energy from that and mentally got better each workout. McIlravy at that time already was married with two kids (he had them in college) so he was more mature than me because he had priorities to his family and it gave him a balance that he needed. He only had enough time in the day for one workout because he had responsibilities that did not allow him to train like I did. Lincoln had to get everything he could out of one workout and mentally leave that practice feeling confident. Your approach mentally is the biggest part of your success in the sport along with the workload you put in. I won multiple medals on the world level punishing myself two to three times a day and Lincoln did the same with one workout a day. My mind needed different things to get there than his did, but we both mentally got there in our own way. Our mental approach to training was the edge over everyone else, and I went to the Olympics everyday mentally!
