  1. Yesterday
  2. It was a great tournament with some very deep weight classes. Good early test for the wrestlers. I thought it was well officiated also. Saw very few coaches at the tables.
  3. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend but going thru the brackets there looks to have been some really good match-ups. Desilva-Singleton is a top 25 match-up nationally and I'm sure was very fun to watch. 152 and 132 were absolute minefields. 3 D1 commits at 152 and none of them won. Augustine and Stonecheck was a war by all accounts. Augustine has a win over Weston at Super 32. He's right there with the best guys in the Southeast. 132 a grinder as well. Master is really really tough and going to be very solid for Princeton one day. Wilkins is so gritty, he wins the close ones. Rumfelt not placing is proof how deep this weight was. Really great day by a few SC Juniors. Green pinning a U Penn recruit, Malachi Wiley, is probably the most impressive win of the day for an SC kid. Heard didn't seem to have much trouble other than his semi's with Layton from Indian Land. Compton steady as always and Amaker wrestling back for 3rd after an upset loss round out really good days for Class of 2021 SC kids. It's impressive what Koz and Co. have built this tournament into. It's a great kickoff to the start of the season.
  4. Got to watch the whole tournament, these are my take aways. 106 - Winner Ty Tice is a stud I think he is Eastside next 4 timer 113 - Runner up Chris Compton should get another state championship ring this year. 120 - Heard from York also should get a state championship this year kid is solid top to bottom 126 - Vargo should win it unless Huntsburger drops in then I go 50/50 on that match 132- Wilkins as always is a solid wrestler, in the finals against Masters and only losing by 1 was impressive I think he wins his 4th at 132 -145 Soriano, Amaker, Huntsberger, fighting for the weight Wilkins vacates. 138 - again Bailey wins this weight if that’s where he ends up 145 - for 5A it gets interesting seeing an Emory vs Wilkins rematch would be fun but if I had to guess I would put Emory winning this. 152 - Got to watch the best match between Augustine and Stonecheck from GA. Augustine wins this weight in SC and would win 145-170, if he chooses in my opinion he is the best p4p wrestler in the state across all divisions 160 - didn’t see much at the slam here for SC but I heard lots of kids are injured but returning (Ryan Augustine, Ben Maholtz) 170 - Green in the finals looked great, he jumped a few weight classes 182- Haile made an impressive appearance here but I don’t think he beats Stephenson from Hillcrest 195 - Ekanem from Southpoint looked good - would like to see him vs Riley from TR wrestle. 220- Dean vs Dixon was a match that could go either way. If those are our state finalists it should be fun to see who is on top HWT - I’m usually not a HWT guy but McRea from Byrnes is going to be hard to beat. As always The Southern Slam didn’t Disappoint, this tournament is ran so smoothly and is the best in SC every year.

    those are all fine questions but we all know what question we're really here for.
  15. What teams? Who to watch? Predictions? This board is too quite lately.
  16. I'm not planning on showing up for practice on Mondays and Fridays either. How can I hold the kids to a higher standard?
  17. Wrestler: So we have to practice to compete? coach: Yes, that is how that works. Wrestler: OH, Like how many practices? Coach: All of them. Wrestler: Oh, that is a problem. Coach: Whats the issue? Wrestler: I dont really work that hard. Coach: Basketball try outs are in the gym. See ya.
  18. Mondays are tough Suntzu -- don't think you are being very understanding here... 😅
  19. "so, when you say practice is Monday-Friday, you meant, like, Monday THROUGH Friday?" "recruit"- I can't come to practice on Mondays or Fridays Me- oh dang, what's going on? "recruit" - huh? nothing, it's just like, ya know...Mondays. Amiright? me- we may need to rethink your plans for the winter.
  20. Second. This could very well be a Top 10 match-up at that point in the season.
  21. Dear Newberry and Limestone, Please move your match to Sunday January 26th. This is currently the biggest rivalry in the state of South Carolina at the collegiate level for wrestling and for anyone that missed it last year, it came down to South Carolina native Patton Gossett and his pin to secure the win. The atmosphere at Limestone was awesome! There are currently over 25 South Carolina wrestlers between each roster, at least I think...Newberry has not updated theirs yet? Several alumni from both schools are coaching at the high school and youth level around the state. This could be a huge event but it is continually limited because of a week night that does not allow a lot of travel time after a high school practice or duties at home with families. I am just a fan and I understand their are a lot moving parts that have to be dealt with. I also have no idea what restrictions each school has to work around but I see this as an opportunity to grow wrestling in the state, promote your schools wrestling team and facilities while at the same time exposing future wrestlers to the intensity of the rivalry! Right now Newberry has the number 1 ranked 141 pounder in the country and Limestone is bringing number 5 ranked 197 pounder and former Cane Bay wrestler Matt Rudy off redshirt. Some absolute studs to watch wrestle. So here we go, how many of alumni, fans and wrestlers would commit to a Sunday drive down or up to the sleepy town of Newberry to watch some top level wrestling and great rivalry?

Thank you..
  26. I can't think of a class with a deeper top 10-15 guys than this one. Would not surprise me to see another 2-3 guys commit to D1 rosters in the next few months even before NHSCA. Williams, Wilkins, Fleming, Soriano, all come to mind. I do know that Williams has been in talks with some folks that would require him to invest heavily in warm clothing. I also say this not knowing any of these guys plans for their own future; pure speculation. Also, good to see Lauser and Dance at Davidson come down to pay some attention to SC. Fernicola is in line to get a top notch degree no questions about it. Awesome to see.
  27. Orangeburg Prep needs matches in December. Had to cancel all home matches and were bumped out of some away matches due low participation. Only have 4 varsity kids this season and will drive to other schools to get mat time if available. If your school can help please email jray@orangeburgprep.com Thanks!
