This argument begins and ends with guys who didn't win State titles but went on to earn All American status or win NCAA championships at the DI level. Guys like Brian Dolph (North Canton Hoover, NCAA title for Indiana), Charlie Jones (Sandusky, NCAA title for Purdue) and if course, the great Dan St John (Cleveland St. Joes, TWO NCAA titles for Arizona State).

Two kids I wrestled early in my high school career, Ryan fields and Dante rini. At the time I would have bet my life savings both would have left with a couple. (Wouldn't have been much but still)

Maybe not. Depends on the question. It seems the poster was asking about high school performance not college. It is possible to be great in high school and not in college and vise versa.

I would agree. Focus in on those that were credentialed in high school, happened not to win a state title, and succeeded in college.

Dave Bolyard (Akron Springfield/Central Michigan) is one that fits in this bucket.

People need to remember that there are degrees of "good".

Tariq Wilson, Cory Shie, and Bobby Smith.. Tariq being a 3x runner up losing to absolute freaks each year in the finals is a bummer and even winning ironman shows the craziness behind that. Cory Shie is a hammer.. 3rd at super 32, Fargo AA, defeated champs and finalists throughout his career but unfortunately never got it done. Bobby Smith from Hilliard Davidson graduated in 2014 3x placer runner up to Ivan Mclay as a junior and got banged up as a senior and took 5th. Defeated Nate Hagan multiple times, Assad, Gennar Feutch, and so many other studs.. Just writing this post makes me bummed out for these guys! But it's not about the results necessarily, simply the journey.

Austin Assad also! Fargo champ, defeating Russell from Georgia who just AA'd for Edinboro, was a 4x placer and split bouts with Jose Rodriguez and Jose got the final one at the Schott.

Only if you remember or were there. Few folks after that 'generation' have any idea.

What about Tony Abbruzzese? GH.

This is exactly what I meant ProV1 thank you for clarifying. Obviously guys like Jacob Kasper and Max Rohskopf peaked in college, but I am looking for guys that were nationally known as high school wrestlers. Edgar Bright comes to mind for me.

Kagan Squire was right there too; both beaten by Joey Ward for the state title.

Tom Cousineau (75) and Tom Kalski (80) from Eds. Cousineau had Golic and Harold Smith (both future AA's) to deal with; while Kalski got DQ'ed at state.

Still, Daniel Mason-Strauss had the biggest achievement. Academically ineligible the second half of his Sr year, he entered and won the Sr nationals. Despite not wrestling for months.

I think this article does a good job of describing wrestlers though slightly limited by covering only from 1990-2005.

Harrycrane is an unknown quantity at this point
Great stuff guys , I know some included it but with some of those names who went on to win NCAA titles I am interested in the background of the high school journey . Later blooming as in great but others peaked earlier ? Weight issues ? Wrestling being a long hard season much of success is being as close to 100 percent as possible at the right time , peaking as it were at the end of the season much like a team getting hot and healthy late.

Loved the Cousineau reference , which brings up another factor being that sometimes as great as you are there us sometimes if always ultimately guys who are just a bit better

To me, this is the only answer. Bolyard was head and shoulders above his field but something always came up In march

Not academically ineligible. Wrestling on Day 1 of District Tournament...was withdrawn on Day 2. Kid was a freak on a wrestling mat for sure.

I'm a fan but by the looks of who will be back next year, I think Sandro Ramirez will end up being the best to never win state.
