Ryans1906 is on a distinguished road
What I was trying to point out is that there are hold backs in all sports and sometimes you have an athlete(football player) that is varsity ready should he not be able to compete at the varsity level against seniors that may be 18 or 19 years old based on the fact that he is a 14 year old freshman or should he be limited to his peer level age group. Likewise in wrestling although I don't completely agree with the hold back in any sport I understand it is within the confines of the rules, with that being said if little johnny is up to the challenge and ready to compete why stop him. On the flip side there is a young lady that competes in wrestling here in Ohio and I know there were a lot of 106 pounders who hated to see her coming. Should she not be able to compete because she may have given up strength in many of her matches, she made up for it with tenacity, skill and technique. (But I guess girls competing is another topic)
