UWW U23 and Juniors Nationals

Noticed some Ohio wrestlers in the brackets this weekend. I did not look at the women's brackets as I'm just not familiar with those names from Ohio at this age group. Feel free to add to those that I might have missed.
Based on who I recognized, these are those that placed:

Great tournament, and for all the sh*t FloWrestling gets on twitter, I am so grateful for their service for providing the ability to watch these kind of events in real time, and to be able to go back and watch matches on demand is fantastic.

I'll also say that Bryce Andonian is an absolute freak. I re-watched all of his matches, and to be able to do the things that he does against high level competition is astounding. I've watched him since the OAC days and while he was always exciting with his go for broke style....breaking all the rules of wrestling - reaching back, rolling onto his back, stepping over whizzers, elevators, gator rolls, etc. .... I just can't wrap my head around the fact that some of the things that he's pulling off against D1, national level studs simply should not work - but they do.... He makes top level guys look helpless.....
  • Round 1 - 24 second TF
  • R2- 12 second pin
  • R3- rolls off his back- steps over pins,
  • 1/4ers - 1st period TF against blue chip AJ Ferrari...2 feet-to-back throws, and a step over to trapped arm gut....
  • Semis- a shootout vs Rutgers stud Alvarez...where he almost gives it away, but somehow ends up on top of a scramble to win.....
He's so much fun to watch, he has such a great feel and he does it all with supreme confidence. He forces his opponents to open up, he's never afraid to give up points knowing that he'll continue to score, puts himself into crazy positions just to initiate scrambles knowing that he'll end up on top, and he's always looking to pin. As a coach, he seems like one of those rare talents that you give plenty of space to, and be careful not over coach. He's a special kid, and I can't wait to see him on the big stage in March (fingers crossed)

I did attend and did get to watch one of his matches live. Really fun to watch him wrestle.

His suplex at the end of the first round was crazy!
