Hoover D-1 District Rankings (Off-Season #1)

I love doing these rankings, but as it has been pointed out before, they are just for fun. To any wrestlers who read these and feel that they are ranked too low, you may be right.
I am bound to be wrong on many of the rankings, but fortunately they have absolutely no impact on how anyone will finish at any tournament this season or any other year.

* = unsure about participation or availability

# = A second wrestler from the same school ranked at the same weight. I will add an extra wrestler to the rankings at each weight that contains a #.

1. Kolin Howard- Maple Hts.(SQ)
2. Mikey Lewarchick- Wadsworth (SQ)
3. Colin Roberts- Fitch (SQ)
4. Chris Rocha- Riverside (SQ)
5. Anthony White- Mayfield (5th district)
6. Jonathan Dimos- Mass. Jackson (6th district)
7. Jacob Hamad- Nordonia
8. Marlon Yarbrough- Copley

Incoming Freshmen:
Mason Brugh- Wadsworth (3rd middle school state)
Zane Van Hoorhis- Copley (8th middle school state)
Drew Dulcie- (Massillon) Perry (8th middle school state)
Corey Haney- (Medina) Highland (8th middle school state)
Kevin Grunzweig- Solon (8th middle school state)
David Shue- Wadsworth (7th middle school state 2017)

There are a boatload of middle school state placers coming into this weight next season who wrestled anywhere from 74 to 96 pounds at last year’s middle school state tournament. I’m not sure who will return to the weight from last year’s crop of 106-pounders, other than Yarbrough who could quickly become one of the district favorites if he’s grown into a full sized 106.

1. Gavin Sampsel- Mass. Perry*
2. Nick Sabin- Mentor (7th state)
3. Kyren Butler- Copley (SQ)
4. Jake Williams- Mass. Perry (SQ)#
5. Luke Haymaker- Mass. Jackson
6. Ben Sponseller- Lake*
7. Hunter Griffin- Wadsworth
8. Craig Schramm- Ellet (5th district)
9. Darian Cowles- Lakeside

Hopefully, Sampsel will be back at 100% this coming season after missing a year due to injury. Among his previous year’s wins were victories over state placers Andy Graham (2x), Blake Saito, and Boot Kuhlins, 2018 state placers Michael Shaw and Kyle Peterson, and a pin over state champ Oscar Sanchez.

1. Jake Canitano- Solon (3rd, 5th state 2016)
2. Logan Heil- Brunswick (6th, 3rd state)
3. Landen Hacker-Wadsworth (7th state)
4. Zach Wiseman- Stow (5th district)
5. Jimmy Bostic- Mass. Jackson
6. Lincoln Splete- Mentor
7. Charlie Burk- North
8. Chase Henderson- Walsh Jesuit

Incoming Freshmen:
James Scavuzzo- Highland (5th middle school state)

I went with Canitano at #1 despite the 2-1 record that Heil posted against him last year. Canitano had the most recent win, and the most significant, defeating Heil at the state tournament while finishing 3rd at a deep weight-class.
He also defeated Hacker (2-0) and 2x state placer Rini (14-3) at the state tournament. Canitano has been impressive in his 2 state tournaments, beating 2018 state champ Shupp twice back in 2016 and splitting two bouts with 2017 state finalist Gio DiSabato at the same tournament.

1. Jaivon Jones- Shaker Hts. (5th state)
2. Gus Sutton- Fitch (8th, 6th state)
3. Nick Nastasi- Kenston (SQ 2017)
4. Derek Fields- Brunswick (SQ)
5. Michael Kelly-Barberton (SQ)
6. Nate DeBoe- Mentor (5th district, 5th district 2017)
7. Tommy Ungrady- Mayfield
8. Zachary Evans- Hoover

Sutton has now placed twice at state and achieved All-American status in Freestyle last summer in Fargo. His career resume boasts wins over Colin Schuster, Skyler Lasure (3x), Andrew Perelka, Cody Moosman, Kyle Gruber, and West Virginia state champ Joey Miller. Sutton also split with Jones, beating him in the district finals, though Jones had the more recent and more significant win at state.

1. Logan Messer- Wadsworth (5th state)
2. Caleb Graber- Green (SQ)
3. Connor DeBoe- Mentor (SQ)
4. Jake Bryson- Highland (6th district)
5. Kolbie Lange- Barberton
6. Zach Richards- Fitch
7. Mico Miloradovic- Brunswick
8. William Speight- Bedford

Incoming Freshmen:
Sean O’Horo- Boardman (2nd middle school state)

Messer defeated Graber twice last year, winning 10-2 at Hoover earlier in the year and 1-0 in the district quarterfinals. He also beat both DeBoe (15-3) and Bryson (7-0) at the district tournament last season as a sophomore.
Messer picked up 2 wins over 2x state placer Blake Saito, a 6-4 win over former middle school state finalist Darnai Heard, and 2 wins over 2x state placer Skyler Lasure over the course of last season.

1. Luke Baughman- Wadsworth (2nd, 4th state)
2. Daniel Patten- Stow (6th state)
3. Mitch Collica- Nordonia (8th state)
4. Darese Sparkman- Mass. Perry (SQ)
5. Zack Scalf- Barberton (6th district)
6. Alex French- Riverside (6th district 2016)
7. Adam Nedolast- Copley
8. Greg McKee- Highland

Baughman put on a show along with Bryce Andonian in the state finals last year as both wrestlers put it on the line in a 14-10 shootout. Although he didn’t claim the title this past season, Baughman still has one year left to achieve a state championship.
He’s made impressive improvements with each year so far, placing 4th at this past year’s Ironman, beating Andonian in an early season dual, winning a title at Medina where he beat state finalists Alex Isbrandt and Mike Clark as well as state champ Luke Wymer, earning a national ranking, and reaching his first state finals after breaking through an posting his first win over his nemesis Marco Regalbuto in the semifinals.

1. Mitchell North- Wadsworth (4th, 3rd state)
2. Brady Linder- Highland (SQ)
3. Antwon Holloway- Maple Hts.*
4. Shayne Magda- Madison (SQ)
5. Cameron Fitzsimmons- Barberton
6. Sal Perrine- Nordonia (6th district)
7. Rory Nolan- Mayfield
8. Dylan Sosnowsky- Kenston*

North posted some awesome results this past season, but ended up 4th in a tight race for the title at the state tournament.
He was 4th at Ironman where he beat eventual state champ Voinovich 2-0 after knocking off 3x state finalist Ben Pasiuk. North won a title at Medina where he beat 3x state placer Conan Becker in the semis and 2x state placer Josh Jaeckin in the finals. He later posted two huge dual meet wins, defeating state finalist Chris Donathan (9-8) and downing 4x state champ Mitch Moore (5-4).

1. Jonathan List- Medina (SQ)
2. Aidan Corrigan- Twinsburg
3. Christian Marinozzi- Mentor (6th district, 6th district 2017)
4. Da’Miere Clift- Mass. Jackson
5. Cameron Stropoli- Lake*
6. Tyler Angus- Nordonia
7. Nick Davis- Green
8. Channing Valencia- Barberton

List put forth an impressive freshman campaign, qualifying for the state tournament at season’s end.
He beat state qualifier Boston Dubocq (8-1) in the finals at the Kilted Classic to claim a title early in the season. List missed the middle portion of the season, but returned at the end of the year, besting state alternate Cameron Riggenbach 5-0 in the sectional finals.
The next week, he beat Marinozzi 5-3 in sudden victory in the district quarters and then defeated Riggenbach once again, this time by a 1-0 score in the consolation semis to lock up a spot in the state tournament.

1. Dom Loparo- Wadsworth (SQ)
2. Joe Koplow- Kenston (SQ)
3. George Rozier- Firestone
4. Kevin Kiussis- Brunswick (6th district)
5. Alex Cefaratti- Twinsburg
6. Sean-Michael James- Lake
7. Ethan Silvus- Medina*
8. Brody Arrundale- Madison

Loparo made some nice strides in his first season of varsity wrestling, reaching the blood round of the state tournament as a sophomore last year.
He defeated Koplow and Cefaratti twice last season, and he also pinned Rozier in the sectional finals, defeated state qualifier Stefan Farian in OT in the Suburban League finals, and beat Troy Murphy 14-9 at the state tournament.

1. Michael O’Horo- Boardman
2. Michael Caniglia- Hudson (6th district)
3. Josh Appling- Mayfield
4. Harrison Edwards- Green*
5. Chad Van Pelt- Riverside
6. Justin Hendershot- South
7. Curtis Helman- Brunswick
8. Collin Flynn- Nordonia

O’Horo may have missed the post season last year, but I seriously doubt that he’ll miss the state tournament this season. State placement is a distinct possibility and a state final appearance is not out of the question.
Last year he won a title at the Hoppel, defeating returning state bronze medalist Duce Johnson in the finals. He also finished 3rd at Top Gun where he beat state qualifier Alex Carrothers, and he claimed an EOWL title, winning by injury default over 2x state placer Anthony D’Alesio in the finals.

1. Gary Wokojance- Barberton (6th, 6th state)
2. Jacob Smail- Fitch
3. Seth DiCola- Medina
4. Justin Olszko- Nordonia
5. Shane McGinnis- Hudson
6. Jack O’Donnell- Highland
7. Freddy Lisy- Euclid
8. Kareem Hamden- Boardman

Wokojance placed at the state tournament for a second straight year finishing 6th at a loaded weight-class.
Though he finished 6th, he defeated 4th place finisher Lennox Wolak 10-6 in the quarterfinals. Wolak is the highest returning state placer from this weight-class, and the win by Wokojance marks the second straight year that he has defeated Wolak at the state tournament.

I ranked Smail at this weight where he wrestled most of the year rather than at 220 where he competed in the post season.

1. Micah Clemson- McKinley (SQ)
2. Jarin Curtis- Mass. Perry (SQ)
3. Paul Zentiska- Barberton
4. Chris Merritt- Maple Hts. (5th district)
5. Jameson Jackson- Wadsworth
6. Salvatore Corsi- Lake
7. Josh Cornell- Fitch
8. Garrett Anderson- Brunswick

Clemson made a huge jump from placing 6th in the sectional in 2017, to finishing a bout away from placement at the state tournament in 2018.
He defeated Curtis twice at the sectional tournament, beat state placer Breylon Douglas 10-8 in overtime at the district tournament, and avenged an earlier loss with a pin over Caleb Wood at the state tournament.
Clemson also pinned the district #1 at 220, Luster, in their dual meet, so he would start the season ranked #1 at either weight.

1. Adam Luster- Mass. Perry (SQ)
2. Jared Sanders- Lake (5th district)
3. Eddie Sevastos- Brunswick
4. Kenneth Koah- McKinley
5. Brenden Holiday- Wooster
6. Brock Kimble- Fitch
7. Charles Medley- Maple Hts.*
8. Jose Gonzalez- Bedford

Luster defeated Sanders 6-1 in the sectional finals last year. A week later he placed 3rd at Hoover where he rebounded from a quarterfinal loss to Romaine Meinhard to win 4 straight consolation bouts. He seemed to gain steam as he surged back through the consolation rounds, winning in OT in his first bout, 2-0 in his second match, 9-3 in his state qualification bout, and by pin over Meinhard in the rematch for 3rd.

1. Max Millen- Mass. Perry (SQ)
2. Michael Mather- Lake (SQ)
3. Marco Tramontano- Mayfield
4. Jake Burns- Wooster
5. Kobe Bryant- McKinley
6. Ryan Lee- Nordonia
7. Yusef Russell- Solon
8. Mitchel Sotera- Kenston

Millen beat Mather 3-2 in the sectional semifinals last season on his way to finishing 1st at sectionals and 2nd (to state champ Earnest) at the district tournament.
Millen added a 3-2 win over Lucas Santillo of St. Edward at the state tournament while reaching the blood round.
He posed a 3-2 overtime win over D-3 state bronze medalist Noah Koch in the 7th place final at Medina over the holidays.

1. Wadsworth
2. Massillon Perry
3. Barberton
4. Austintown Fitch
5. Brunswick
6. Lake
7. Mentor
8. Nordonia

Wadsworth looks like the class of this district once again, and I expect the margin to be wider with the graduation of Carr, Soehnlen, and Blackiston for Perry.
The Grizzlies return 4 state placers and 2 other qualifiers, and I’m sure they’ll insert some talented freshmen and reserves from last year into the line-up.

A special thanks to Boro Fan for all the insight into the weights of the wrestlers, Baum’s Page and Jake’s Wrestling for all of the results that they provide, and to any of the other wrestling nerds that actually read these things.

Wadsworth will take a hit in the upper four wt. classes, but with the latest transfer they will be very tough from 106 thru 170.

Probably not appropriate at this time. Suffice, state qualifier.

Hope he “moved” or will have to sit out the important part of the season anyway.
