  1. You can watch them. Just because they wrestle at schools out of the state doesn't mean you cant watch them online. Every tournament both hit threw the year is on Flo or Track. Both will be competing at high level tournaments threw out there high school seasons and I'm sure they will represent Tennessee very well.
  2. Thats awesome!!! Forgot about Tommy in 2018 that is the only one not on the website. Great group for Coop to join with Bracket and Keller. Hope to see a lot more Tennessee names joining this list over the next few years. Especially with the group of cadets that are moving up next year
  3. I was looking threw past results and really hate to state something if its not facts. I believe Cooper Flynn is the first wrestler from Tennessee to double up at Fargo in the Junior division. I think Matt Keller and Tommy Brackett both have 2 Junior All American honors (Tommy with both of his in Greco and Keller with both of his in freestyle) but from what I can find Cooper is the first to get 2 in one year.
  4. Scott, I understand that and agree that Don and AAU wrestling have helped tremendously with the growth of Tennessee wrestling along with my growth as a coach. I wouldn't be in the spot i'm in today without them. They were the ones to first see my potential as a coach and give me the opportunity to coach a national team and work with some of the best wrestlers in the state. We are talking about USA wrestling though and they don't have much, if any, involvement in USA to my knowledge. With the number of wrestlers Tennessee has you need both AAU and USA working together not competing against each other.
  5. Isn't one of his responsibilities to bring the best coaches and athletes from the state together for the team? Or did i forget something and we just pull them out of a hat? As someone who has coached the Junior team the last two years I can tell you he is definitely not a coach but he did give us the freedom of making our line ups and giving us the freedom to do what we saw fit with the team on the mat. As for the funds, ref pay,and coaches pay I have no clue.
  6. Not true.. While I don't agree with everything the man does he does have a lot of traits that are useful for a chairman. I think, and i have told him this face to face, if he wasn't so controlling and let the people put around him do more he actually wouldn't be doing that bad. The Junior team has had success the past couple years, we have had multiple Fargo AA's, I think the sportsmanship award a couple times at the duals and all this while a man, who apparently everyone hates, is the chairman. I think this could all be solved if just a couple guys would sack up an apologize to each other. So all though i don't always agree with Bowers I do believe if him and a couple other people would get there #### together Tennessee would take people by storm this summer
  7. Alright this is getting about stupid y'all are all going to run the state into the ground because you cant work together and actually come up with ideas to help. You would much rather come on a forum and complain. While I definitely don't agree with everything Bowers does I don't see some of y'all stepping to the plate to try to deal with all he has to put up with. If he has upset you to the point you cant have a conversation with him you don't have to talk to him. All the other board members names are on here give them a call and tell them your ideas you think would help. Better yet just jump on the conference calls I Live in Maryland and I have still been on more conference calls then most of you probably have and he does post when they will be so no one can use the excuse i didn't know there was one. This talking trash about each other is not helping just hurting the state more.
  8. hahaha you really going to call someone fat that's kind of childish not to mention the fact your not in the best of shape yourself bud. One man calling another a fat purple dinosaur though probably shouldn't be molding the minds of our future men.
  9. Even without Chatt having girls wrestling seems like the rest of Tennessee is doing very well. Just went threw flo rankings and Tennessee has 6 girls ranked in the top 20 of their respected weight classes #15 at 112- Kerra Strevel #17 at 117- Isabella Badon #18 at 127- Robin Yunis #11 at 132- Emma Walker #12 at 200- Rose Gailah #20 at 225- Shamia Wells
  10. I think that is a perfect top 8.
  11. People said the same thing about McCallie last year. Not saying Baylor doesn't have the horses, because they most certainly went out and got them this year, but there is a lot more that goes into a state title then just having some good wrestlers. Not going to say the Bros will be able to beat Baylor but to say it won't be close is a little ridiculous considering that they just bet them by 50 in the bradley invitational. I know Baylor had a couple starters out but 50 points is a lot to make up
  12. Coach Holland, I will be running an intensive style clinic at heritage high school the 28th and 29th. The cost will be $20 for one day and $30 for both. Each day will have two sessions 10-12 and 1-3 First session of both days will be technique mixed with hard drilling Second sessions will be review and live matches grade level will be 6th-12th I will provide lunch both days (most likely will be subway) I know some schools are wrestling this weekend and there are a few youth tournaments going on but if your not going to be at a tournament this will be a great opportunity to get some good fundamental and intense training.
  13. Cleveland i do believe is a for sure lock in to win AAA but to say Baylor for sure over the Bros that's crazy. If there is one thing Mr. Harrison down in memphis knows how to do it is have his team ready and peaking at the right time. Baylor has a very solid line up this year and will be tough to beat but they definitely aren't a lock in.
  14. still looking for a couple weights to help fill the first two teams. Im looking for a 101, 163, 173, and hwt. These are both going to be really stong teams so I would love to fill the last couple spots with a few Tennessee guys.
