Just imagine if you went here and had to pay the entire price tag then went to say IVY which is a similar cost and had to pay that entire tag too. That's $500,000 plus. Insane.This is a great tourney, but it was more interesting in the days when SPG or Eds had a chance to win the title. Blair, aka The Evil Empire, has upped their game of recruiting the best from around the country - 106 McGowan #1 seed FL, 120 Miller #3 seed PA, 138 Chittum #10 seed TN, 160 Stewart #5 seed MD, 170 Mata #2 seed CA, 182 Rogers WA #2 seed WA, 195 Craft #1 seed OH, 220 Pettigrew #4 GA
They do have 4 from NJ - 126 Mastrogiovanni #1 seed, 132 Wask #16 seed, 145 Norman #13 seed, 152 #1 Mastrogiovanni #1 seed.
Now, I certainly don't begrudge any of these young men and/or their parents from doing what they feel is best for them. And it does come with a price at $64,000 per year (tuition & boarding). Tho it is becoming almost impossible to compete with these types of programs for the typical HS.
